Francis was born in Co. Galway, Ireland c. 1851. He was employed in Dublin as a printer and later as a bookbinder and he lived in Dublin a number of years before he was said to have emigrated to Australia, sometime after 1878 and before 1901. His religion was either Church of Ireland or Presbyterian.
We know nothing about what happened to him after that. Does anybody have information about him? Any help would be appreciated.
