Patrick Fennessy


From on Tuesday, 19 June 2012
Hello Elizabeth, I am a novice family researcher and have just found your website on the internet.
My gr grandparents were Catherine Sullivan and Patrick Fennessy, who lived in Bendigo. One of their daughters was Elizabeth Veronica Fennessy who was my maternal grandmother.
I have struggled to find anything much about them as I have not been able to find any records of their marriage.
I have records of their children's birth certificates and on these it simply states that they came from Tipperary.
An experienced researcher was trying to help me at one stage and thinks that Catherine's parents were James Sullivan and Margaret O'Brien, although I have no idea where she found this information. I notice on your website that Catherine Sullivan and Patrick Fennessy are mentioned as coming here together in 1862, but no other mention, and I'm not sure where they tie in with anyone else on your site.
If you have any information at all, I would be so gratefull.
I have found their grave in Bendigo and have a photo of it. It was very emtional to find this as for some reason, I feel a strong tie to them.
Best wishes Jenny Weimar
