#AtoZChallenge – G for Ann GALLAGHER
G is for ANN GALLAGHER, who married my great great great grandfather DANIEL BOYLE, in about 1815, at Donegal Ireland.
Ann was born in about 1794 at Donegal. Her parents were JAMES GALLAGHER and ELLEN McCLUSKY.
Ann and Daniel had four children; two boys, Patrick and Donald and two girls Bridget and Ellen, who were born between 1820 and 1833.
On 26 February 1857, Ann, by then a widow, left Ireland for Australia on the ship ‘Pomona’, which began it’s journey at Liverpool. She travelled with her son Patrick and his family.
Ann lived her life at Violet Town, with her family around her until she passed away at age 87, in 1881 at Violet Town. She is buried in the Violet Town cemetery.
