We are seeking help to find information regarding Michael Dowd, married to Mary Cusack in Mintaro 1869. Michael's father's name is recorded as "Patrick Dowd" Caven Ireland, but there is no mother's name, and therein lies our problem. We cannot connect him to a family. On the marriage certificate he is stated as being 25 years, a bachelor, a farmer and his father's name was "Patrick Dowd". therefore his year of birth should be cira 1842. The bridge was Mary Cusack, aged 23, spinster, father's name "Michael Cusack" On her death certificate it states she came from Tipperary, Ireland. Michael & Mary arrived in Port Adelaide, South Australia on the "Rockcliff" on 20 Dec. 1864. Michael & Mary produced 9 sons: Patrick 1869,
Michael Joseph 1871, / David Joseph 1872,Thomas 1874,Bernard Rapheal 1876 (who went to live in New Zealand) John 1878, Andrew Raphael 1880, James William 1884 and Michael Edward 1885. If there is anyone else researching this matter or any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank You. Julie Dowd
