Hope you still visit this forum occasionally. Just found it tonight. I am a long lost relative! Myles McHale and Mary Surdell had a daughter Bridget, who married Laurence Conway. They moved to Scotland. Their son was Richard Conway, and his wife, Rose Ann Moore. Richard and some of his sons came to Australia in about 1913, to check it out. The boys stayed, but Richard returned for the rest of the family. Rose Ann died whilst he was returning to Scotland, and son Bernard "joined up" when war broke out and was killed in France (won a French medal). My grandfather, Richard couldn't fight as he had a crippled leg. He came to Australia (to Ipswich Queensland)on 8/5/1914. There he met and married Agnes Gray, a Scot like himself. The had two dad Jim, and Laurence. I am the 2nd of four of Jim's children, the others being my big sister, Paddy Taylor, and brothers Jim jnr., and Kevin. Several other of my grandfather's brothers also settled here....Laurence, James, Thomas I can remember, as the family is full of men by those names!!!! It can be very confusing sorting out the generations. Interested to hear where you fit in, as I don't know of any of Bridget McHale's siblings.
