: i was hoping someone could provide me with information on Richard Gilroy.
: This is as far back in my tree as i have climbed so far...
: Richard Gilroy married to Elizabeth Amos around 1850's in Ireland.
: Elizabeth born to Walter and Rachael Amos (who both died 1900).
: Elizabeth born 1833 Fintona, Tyrone, Ireland.
: Richard, Elizabeth and son James (born 1853, Enniskillen), immigrated to Australia 1854 on the Araminta (ship).
: Richard died Australia 1884
: Elizabeth died Australia 1873
: We think that Richard's father's name was Patrick?? or it could be a middle name.
: Please, if you can help, we are stuck at this point and are struggling to get any further back.
I got to the same point, Richard's father Patrick Gilroy died sometime before 1854, and his mother Margaret also died some time before 1854.
