I am searching for descendants of Ellen Dempsey who married James Hoolahan (later Houlahan) at Wollombi 1863. The family settled mainly in Singleton - most children married from there from 1889; some died there including Ellen Houlahan in 1920. Does anyone know of their descendants please.

Hi Allannah, do you have much info on the family - if not I can do lookups for you BDMs, from 1788 to 1945.

Hi Roy,
I have only just stumbled upon this connection to the Dempsey family, so know nothing of them.
What springs to mind? I am mainly concerned with Catherine Dempsey who married William Mitchell, but Ellen and Margaret were her older sisters. That is all that I have found so far.

Hey Kenneth George Houlahan,
Thanks for getting in touch. I would love to have more information on the Houlahan families of Singleton. It seems an extraordinary coincidence that the Houlahan family should become connected to the Wooloughan family, some generations later. My mother-in-law was the daughter of Mary Amelia nee Mitchell who was a daughter of Catherine nee Dempsey. Catherine's mother was Maria nee Manser who married Stephen Dempsey, then married Thomas Cagney; though Maria was buried with her first husband at Wollombi.
I would love to know what happened to Catherine's sisters Ellen and Margaret, they married Houlahan brothers I think.
Reply direct please as I am anxious to know more.
Allannah Wooloughan of Rye Victoria.

Tracing William McCann born Patrick Plains 1842 and Elizabeth McCann born 1846 - Elizabeth married George Bailey. William and Elizabeth are children of William McCann and Mary nee Dunny in the Singleton area in the 1840's. Any one researching Mary Dunny line please email me. Believe William and possibly Thomas ended up in Queensland.
