Hi,

I am researching an ancestor "Joseph Henry Rafter" - the only details we have are below and he was born in Dublin and immigrated to Australia. He married a Bridget Ryan (her father, Phillip Ryan, was born in Upperchurch, Tipperary in 1809) and I have the details of one daughter "Elizabeth Jane Agnes Rafter" born 1 December 1869 Williamstown, Victoria, Australia.

On a side note, Joseph read a Welcome to the visiting Mr Redmond MP when the brothers toured Australia in 1883. 

We don't know the parish so is a long shot, but any information about Joseph would be appreciated.

Birth
13 Dec 1840
