I would be gateful for any information concerning me grandfather, JOHN AUGUSTINE CURRY. birth date approx 1868 in Co Armagh, Ireland. Arrived in victoria as an orphan, reputedly both parents dying at sea. Attended an orphanage in Geelong, unable to find any record of him at the St.Augustine Orphange Gelong, though interesting that his second name is such. There was a protestant orphanage in Geelong also at that time, but I have not been able to find records of inmates.
JACurry worked on "Coolangatta", a grazing property as a lad, joined the Victorian Railways, married and settled in Geelong. I would like to trace his family roots in Ireland as well as the existance of any other family members here.
