April A-Z Challenge – C is for CALNAN
William Calnan is my Great Great Grandfather. He was born in Kilkenny, Ireland in 1828. Unfortunately I know very little of his early life, or his arrival to Australia in 1840. William married Ellen Boyle in Melbourne, Victoria, in 1849. William was a farmer, just outside Violet Town. He and Ellen had 12 children.
William died from asthma, at Violet Town in 1883, and is buried at Violet Town cemetary in an unmarked grave
