Searching for Descendants of Michael Neery born Ross Common 1850... Parents John and Annie Neery.

He came to Australia on the ship" Sultana ",  1871, death  notice 6-11-1924  in Mclean, New South Wales, Australia ..

Michael is my great great Grandfather...  I was wondering if his family came here to Australia or on his own... 


I believe he was a farmer in Ross Common   however his  employment  here in Australia  was as a bridge builder and Carpenter.

thanking in advance of any  information  forwarded........Helen Avery

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    The surname in Ireland was usually Neary. I searched on Roots Ireland and did not find any Michael Neary (or variant) baptismal records in Co. Roscommon with parents John and Ann. Did his death record show his mother's maiden name? You posted in Athleague parish. Do you know that the Nearys were from that parish? The reason I ask is because baptismal records for that parish start in 1808 and are on Roots Ireland.

    Do you know of any siblings?
