I'm looking for ancestry on my Grandfather's side, particularly that of his mothers ancestors, Kathleen Mary O'Dea, I'll start with her. Kathleen was born in Devonport, Tasmania Australia in 1908 to Patrick Michael O'Dea and Mabel J Guilfoyle. She was an influential pianist throughout her later life. On the 9th of October 1946, she died 14 days after giving birth to my grandfather Garry Everitt. Her mother, Mabel J Guilfoyle was born in 1887 at Toora, Victoria, Australia and died 1965 in Tasmania. I have no information on her ancestry at all but I assume her family was Irish. Her father, Patrick O'Dea, was born March 17,1875 in Toora, Victoria. He owned Rennison Bell tin mines. Died in Cairns, Queensland, 1965. His mother was Bridget Murphy, born March 1842 in Ireland and died in Toora, 1922. I have no information about her ancestry at this time. Patrick's father was John O'dea, an Irishman born ABT 1833, 1894 in Toora. His parents were another John O'Dea and Mary Lynch, who were both born in Ireland but I have no other information on them at all. If you may be able to help, or are a surviving family member, I'd be glad to hear from you.
