Searching for ancestors of Bernard McGrath born  1803 1875 married Silvermines 1851 Kilmore Country Tipperary Ireland.. Margaret Keogh. Two boys and a girl.from the marriage  somehow got from Ireland to Australia. For the life of me I cand find out from what port and how.  The girl married my grandfather Peter Bannah  giving her name as Delia Agnes McGrath, spinster from Newmarket Clare Ireland., The marriage was at  Maryborough Australia.23 December 1865.

 I would appreciate any ideas of how I could source new informaion

Thank you

    The subscription site Roots Ireland shows a October 10 1853 baptismal record for a Mary McGrath with father Bernard McGrath and mother Margaret Keogh in Silvermines RC parish. I did not find the baptismal records for the sons.

    If your 1865 marriage year is correct then I don't think the Delia Agnes McGrath is a child of Bernard and Margaret.
