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 notice you do not have any children for Elsie and Hugh. I have been given the following by a McCaffrey family tree member and thought you may be interested in it - I do not have certificates to prove this information but have found information on the World War II Nominal Roll and in newspapers that confirm most of it.

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.
