Trying to trace the Australian branch of my family. My great-grandfather's brother, John Cahir, was born in Foilrim, County Clare, Ireland in 1829 (son of James Cahir and Mary Connor); he left for Australia and married Margaret Cahir (yes, it appears her maiden and marriage names are the same) in 1853 and had a daughter, Ellen (apparently an only child according to family correspondence). Additional correspondence indicates that John died in 1911. It is believed that the family lived in Lal Lal, Victoria (near Geelong/Ballarat).
