In Reply to: John Kiely and Mary Dwyer Australia by Sean Glasson of 476

Hi Sean ... not sure if this will pass your eyes given how long ago you posted. Mary Kiely (Dwyer) is my Grand Aunt and she was one of eight kids born to John O'Dwyer and Sarah Lacey. Her youngest brother John Mark O'Dwyer (b.1881) was my grandfather. I actually visited the grave site of John & Mary Kiely last Saturday 28 July 2012. John died 19 June 1934. Mary died 26 April 1944. They are both buried in Nudgee Cemetery in Brisbane. Her father John O'Dwyer, brother James O'Dwyer and sister Margaret O'Dwyer and niece Irene Mary O'Dwyer (daughter of Mary's brother William O'Dwyer)are also in the same cemetry. Mary Dwyer was born 10 Feb 1870 Gorteennamona Parish of Clonoulty Co. Tipperary Ireland. My best guess is that she arrived in Brisbane, Australia in 1888 on the "Jumna". I'm trying to find the death date of her mother Sarah Lacey. If any one reading this had any information on Sarah Lacey (b. 1850 and married 23 Feb 1878 to John O'Dwyer) would be very much appreciated.

regards
Peter
