According to family records, my great grandfather, John Thomas Burke, was born circa 1842 at Calla Kilconnal, Co. Galway.

I have been unable to find that location on any maps, which I have access to. I am hoping that someone may be able to help me with finding that location and any other information about John or his parents and siblings.

He came to Australia in the early 1860's and settled, initially, near the goldfields at Castlemaine, Victoria. He married Ann Mary Hardy on 2 May 1867.

The family moved to a farm in the Torrunbarry District about 25 miles west of Echuca in Victoria. He died in Melbourne on 18 March 1910.
