I am researching the family of my great-great-Grandmother, Margaret Eleanor Fogarty (or Fogerty) who was born in 1843 in Bristol, England and emigrated to Australia in 1860 with her sister Mary on board the Wanata.
Margaret married Athanasius (or Thomas) Jostlear(c.1829-1901) in 1863 in Warrnambool, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Margaret's parents were listed as John Fogarty and Margaret McKay on her death certificate. Margaret and Athanasius had several children and resided predominantly in the Port Fairy (formerly Belfast) and Hamilton areas of Victoria.
Margaret Eleanor Jostlear (nee Fogarty) passed away in 1899 in Richmond, Victoria and is buried in the Melbourne General Cemetery with her husband, her son Miltiades Ernest Albert Jostlear (1870-1908) and also he brother Denis Fogarty (c.1825-1881) (Note: Denis married Elizabeth Clarke at Holy Trinity, Bristol in 1846 and had at least two children - Arthur Fogarty (b.1847) and Francis Fogarty - Denis appears to have left his family behind in England as his wife and children appeared on the 1881 and 1901 census living in London)
I have had difficulty tracing this Fogarty family beyond that which I have detailed above and look forward to hearing from anyone who might have further details and/or be related.
