I just had a look at your additions to your web site regarding Hugh McCaffrey.

As I previously said Hugh's mother was Eliza Ann Ryan NOT Elizabeth Ryan. You see there were two Ryan daughters in the family of Thomas Ryan and Mary Ann Bergin - Elizabeth (my great grandmother) who married James Smails and Eliza who married Thomas McCaffrey. I know it is confusing and it took me a while to get it right but both girls are mentioned on their parent's death certificates as living children of the marriage plus I have a transcript of Eliza's death certificate.

Hugh McCaffrey died on 10 Dec 1951. His siblings were - Thomas b. 1883 d. 1927; James b. 16 March 1885 d. 25 Aug 1962; George b. 1886 d. 1950; Ann b. 1887 d. 30 Dec 1936; Mary b. 1889 d. 20 Oct 1945; Margaret b. 1891 d. 2 Dec 1973; Patrick 1894 d. 9 Mar 1970; Catherine b. 1896 d. 1962; Rosanna b.1898 d. 28 May 1980; Bridget b. 1899; Elizabeth b. 1901 d. 1978 and Lillian b. 1903 d. 27 Sept 1968. Their surname from memory has been spelt Caffrey, McCaffrey and McCaffery.

Hugh's parents - Thomas McCaffrey b. 1858 d. 23 Sept 1929 Taree; Eliza Ann Ryan b. 19 Nov 1865 Scotts Creek d. 27 July 1956 Taree; both are buried in the Mitchell Island Catholic Cemetery.

I had not taken any notice of the gap in the births until you mentioned it so I went back and re-checked I had typed the information given to me by the McCaffrey family member correctly. The dates are the same as the ones I sent you.

I also dug out the funeral notice I had for Elsie and it says "devoted Mum of Cyril (dec), Dud (dec), Barry (dec) and Don". There was an article written in the Manning River Times on Elsie on Wednesday 9 April 2003 regarding her passing and it states that "she married Hugh McCaffrey in 1915 and moved to Kingaroy in Queensland before returning to settle in the Manning. Hugh died in 1951, but Elsie stayed at Mitchells Island with son Don and enjoyed the company of her grandchildren, great grandchildren and many friends until her death".
