Seeking info or contact with descendants of above. Known issue Joseph Francis McDevitt b.c.1850 Belfast.Believed to have arrived in Australia (port unknown) prior to son being born 1883, near the goldfields, in Victoria Australia. Family stories include Joseph was a remittance man who had deserted from the Royal Marines. His family may have been involved with ship building. A man with a drinking problem and a mysterious past, who now lies in an unmarked grave, never to be touched, by order of his daughter who paid for the grave.
Possible connections with the De Vere/Dever/Devar family as this was used as an alias within the family.
Regards Viv
