Hi there Dale

It was great to hear from you. I think I had given up on the Finns - to be honest I have been working on many other branches of my tree.

Now the first thing is to see if our Joseph's are one and the same - the Joseph O Finn in my tree married Henrietta Harpur in 1888 in Wellington, NSW. They had the following children, according to the NSW BMD:

Ruth - born 1888, died 1888
Letisia - b. 1889
John O - b. 1892
Joseph Roland Harold - b. 1894, died 1976.
Jessie Macd - b. 1896
Reggie - b. 1898, died 1899
Patrick B - b. 1900
Maria G - b.1904
Jane C - b. 1906

There also appears to be a Doris who died in 1913. She could have been born after 1907 when the searchable entries end. Also a Gerald Stephen with parents Joseph and Henrietta died in 1977. All the children were registered in either Nyngan or Cobar with Jessie registered in Condobolin.

I am related to this family (in a round about way) through Henrietta Harpur, back through her mother Hanoria Harpur(nee SULLIVAN) and then back to her parents Cornelius Sullivan and Mary Farrell. Cornelius was a convict who came to Australia in 1820 aboard the "Hadlow".

Does this help at all? Do you think we are talking about the same person?
