Hi Steve,

Reginald Cashman was my grandfather. I have tried to research the John Cashman story but cannot find a record of his arrival.

This seems to be the one Stephen refers to, though there are other possibilities:

CASHMAN JOHN [aged 20] AUG 1861 LIGHTNING B 192 001
CASHMAN WM [aged 26] AUG 1861 LIGHTNING B 192 009

Different page number, may not have been travelling together.

Assuming he is the John CASHMAN who died in 1911 in Albury aged 70, his birthyear of c1841 matches above. Though this shows a different age (from NLA Trove):

Albury Banner and Wodonga Express, Friday 17 November 1911
There died in the Albury Hospital on Thursday night John Cashman, an old resident of Tumbarumba. Deceased, who was 73 years of age, had been at the institution since March. He had been confined to his bed for a long time, suffering from sciatica.

Sadly in the same newspaper on the same day, this appears to be regarding a letter from either Reginald or Raymond (probably Reginald, based on location), regarding John's hospital costs:
The monthly meeting of. the committee was held on Monday night...
From Mr. R. Cashman, Corowa, in reply to a letter from the secretary, requesting that his father be allowed to remain in the hospital until he could communicate with his brother on the subject. He (the writer) was heavily encumbered, yet he was prepared to pay £1 per week for the maintenance of his father.

Also, FYI:
Western Mail, Thursday 26 February 1920

The John Cashman I am looking for is the same one as that in your reply who died at Albury Hospital. The story of the Lightning was very interesting, I had no knowledge of this before your posting. How terrible that such a ship should have caught fire and been sunk.

I wondered whether the John Cashman on board the Lightning might have been a soldier?
