Hi Gail,

I live in Melbourne Australia. There are a few Mehegan's in Australia but as yet we have been unable to work out which lines are related to us. As far as we can tell most of the Mehegan's did come from Cork in Ireland. There are deportation papers available somewhere but I have not found them yet. My Grandfather George Mehegan, who is definitely Hughie (Eugene) Mehegan's brother was born about 1870-75. My father as we have said was the youngest son of George's from his second marriage. He lived in Brunswick, an inner suburb of Melbourne. I note from a lot of the notices in the Forum that many people believe that they are related to Hughie. This may be from George's first marriage and it appears that there could be almost a full generation between Georges children from first marriage and children from his second marriage . I doubt, because of the dates, that my grandfather George and your grandfather George are the same person but it is likely that they could have been related in some way. I will search out some more info and post it back to you on this forum. The family resemblance is very strong in the Mehegan's. It is possible that anyone that is related would be able to tell from a photo. Thanks for your reply I hope we can be of further help to you.

Regards Larry.
