Hi Tom, I am so delighted to hear from you again. The reason I mentioned that Mary may have taken some liberties with the facts stems from a lady I have been in touch with that is related to the Kilfoyles. Margaret was her Great Grand Aunt. Also, Geraldine Byrne "Tom & Jack A Frontier Story" (About Tom Kilfoyle and his son Jack)insinuates that also. I personally have no reason to think that as all I know is what I have read and data that I have found. In Mary's family tree she indicates that Thomas (Darby & Margaret's son) died in 1922. I guess that is why I have been so anal in wanting to prove he actully died in 1902. Her family tree dates have, for the most part, been right on the money.
I have found a tree on the internet "Descendants of Patrick Durack and Mary Delany". They were both born in County Clare but there is only one son listed in the tree, Cornelius Durack. Cornelius was born in County Clare but his children were all born in Australia.
On Ancestry.com (where I have gotten most of my info) list a Thomas Durack died 1902 WA born 1866 Golburn, Parents Jeremiah Durack born 1841 Margaret Unknown b 1846. That is listed under an Ancestry Tree named WA Death, no sources listed. I did find the record you listed 372/1919 Thomas Durack son of Patrick and Mary.
Do you have access to Ancestry.com? All my Durack records are in "The Russell Family Tree".
Your wife is a descendant of Mary Durack Skeahan? No I have not seen your tree but I looked for it for days!! My Kilfoyle contact had told me about finding a Stephens Family Tree but couldn't remember where she had found it.
My son-in-law's great grandmother was Sarah Durack. She married Leslie Cameron.
More later,
Juanita
