Patrick Regan

Adelaide Beaupeurt wed Patrick Regan on 6 Jan 1878, ref 626, at St Patricks Roman Catholic Church, Stawell She is described as a farmer at Bellaura aged 43, widowed in Nov 1877 with 1 dead and 8 living children.

Patrick Regan died in 1926 aged 94, ref 12171, hence born in 1836. When he wed Adelaide he was a bachelor aged 42, born in Cork, Ireland to Michael Regan, a teacher, and Catherine Relepher (Father Fitzgerald's writing makes this name hard to decipher). The electoral roll for the 1899 Federal Referendum lists Patrick Regan at Lake Lonsdale, a labourer, and in the 1908 electoral roll he is listed as a gardener living at Bellaura. I appreciate Patrick because when Adelaide died he made sure her parents are listed on the death certificate, a privilege he was not given.

The only other Regan from Cork listed in the Pioneer Index is Michael Regan, who wed Mary McMahon in 1867 and died in 1874 aged 47 (hence born in 1827).
