Abby Galvin/Galvan/Gallavan, County Kerry.

Abby married Michael Moore in the Church of St Francis, Melbourne, Australia, on 29 July 1868. Abby's (also Abigail) parents were Timothy Gallavan and Julia Doherty. Abby's date of birth was circa 1847 but I have not been able to find her exact date of birth. However, her brother Michael Galavan was born on 13 October 1840, in Rathmore with Nohaval and Kilcummin. Brother Denis, who went to New Zealand with Abby and her husband, was born on 29 January 1838, same place. Sister Margaret Gallivan was born on 6 April 1846, same place. It is a safe bet that Abby was also born at Rathmore, etc., too. Denis did not marry according to family anecdote but what happened to other members of the family ? I should mention that Abby Galvin and her husband emigrated to Hokitika, New Zealand, where he died in 1899. Abby later died in Wellington, New Zealand, in 1934, possibly at the home of her daughter, Kate (or Kathleen) who married Peter Malcolm Campbell.
