About Catherine Hogan

Have assumed was born in Limerick as she was married in Limerick but I have no evidence for this. Year of birth estimated from age at death.

Roman Catholic Church Marriage record for Catherine O'Brien marrying Patrick Hogan on 10 June 1857, at St. Michael's Church, Limerick, Co. Limerick, Ireland. (from the site).

Son Thomas (born 1858) and daughter Mary Jane (born 1860) were born in Limerick.

Arrived at Fremantle, Western Australia on the convict ship Lincelles on 28 January 1862 with husband (Pensioner Guard) Patrick and children Thomas and Mary Jane.

It is assumed the family lived in Perth until 1865 (daughter Catherine born in Perth in 1863), as there is an 1865 newspaper shipping notice for a P Hogan and family travelling to Champion Bay (Geraldton) (son John born in Geraldton in 1866).

The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Times, Friday 3 March 1865, p2.
