It seems that the family eventually settled in Victoria (eastern suburbs of Melbourne), although I suspect that they first lived in in South Australia (Holden Hill).

- A Patrick Haughney was cremated at the Springvale Crematorium (VIC) on 4 Sep 1987.

- Josephine Haughney (last residence Mornington, VIC) died on 16 May 1994. She is buried in Dromana Cemetery and it appears that their youngest child Paul Thomas (b 1951) had already passed away as well.



I suspect that a photo of their eldest child can be found here:



His possible contact details:


(Note: There are 2 listings for South Australia as well. Possibly, ... they are relations from a previous marriage???)

Slyvia,   thank you very much for the information.I did not expect an answer so quickly.I hope to be able to e-mail or write to some of the family.Josephine would have been my 2nd cousin.I was born and grew up in the same town,Carlow,as her.If any other details come up please let me know.I have been doing the family history for the last 7/8 years and am still surprised and delighted at what turns up.
