Place of migration
Migrated to/Born in Australia

Samuel Donaldson (1782 - 1877) was a weaver, married to Nancy Burns.  They lived in Templemore Parish, Londonderry, Co. Londonderry, very close to the border with Co. Donegal.  Their son William b. abt. 1819, (marr. to Rosanna Burns) and his sister Mary emigrated to Australia in 1841, followed by sister Anne (marr. to Joseph Miller) in 1852. 

[Samuel's brother William (marr. to Catherine Margaret Williamson) lived at Carry, Muff, Inishowen, Donegal.  His sons Andrew and John also came to Australia.]

It appears Samuel Donaldson and daughter Jane came out to Australia in 1856, and Samuel died in October, 1877 at his son William's home in Moranding, Victoria, aged 95 years of age.
