Thomas Francis Meagher

I came across some interesting information this morning on a senior Officer of the mighty Fight New York 69th Infantry Regiment-Thomas Francis Meagher. I knew he was a part of the Irish Rebellion of 1848 and I believed he fled Ireland to the United States. Infact he was transported to Tasmania as a convict where he married Catherine Bennett-I wonder if any relation. They had a daughter who died four days after birth and she is buried at Richmond, 40 kilomtres from me. I know where I’m going to day
