    Mary Ann Kelly emigrated on the ship Erin-go-Bragh, which sailed from Queenstown, Ireland on 8 Feb 1862 and arrived in Moreton Bay on 31 Jul 1862

    Tue Erin-Go-Bragh, ship, l,111 tons, Captain Barlase, sailed from Queenstown for this port on the 8th February, with immigrants. We extract the following from the Home News relating to this vessel: On thc 6th February about 400 emigrants, men, women, and children embarked at Cork on board the Erin go-Bragh, one of the Black Ball line of Australian packets, for Queensland, Australia. They are principally from Tullamore and its vicinity, in the King's County, and were accompanied by the Rev. P. Dunn, a Catholic clergyman, who has already resided seven or eight years in the Australian colonies, two or three of which he spent in Queensland. The Rev. Dr. Quin, of Dublin, brother to tho Bishop of Brisbane, accompanied the emigrants to Cork, and aided in the arrangements made for their embarkation. He is preparing to send out another party to the same place, who will be accompanied by several priests and nuns. The Rev. Mr. Dunn will not leave his party until he has seen them all fully provided for in the colony, and, should success equal to what he anticipates crown his efforts, he will return for another batch.

    A birthday party to celebrate Mrs. John Fogg's 67th birthday was held at her residence, Neurum Vale, Neurum, on Friday, 16th March (writes our Woodford correspondent). The gathering consisted mainly of relatives, of whom 45 were grandchildren and great grand children. Mrs. Fogg arrived with her husband in Queensland by the Erin Go Bragh, sailing vessel, on August 4, 1862, and proceeded to the Condamine, where she and her husband lived for 13 years. They then shifted by bullock waggon to Samsonvale from which place, after spending two years, they arrived at the Neurum in 1877, where Mr. Fogg died after seven years' residence. Since then Mrs. Fogg has resided continuously at her present abode. All of Mrs. Fogg's family except one are married, and they all live in the district. They are Mrs. W. Eaton, Mrs. J. Chambers, Mrs. H. Black, Mrs. J. Jenkinson, Mrs. J. Stanton, Mrs. H. Kropp, Mr. J. Fogg, and Mr. H. Fogg. Mrs. S. B. Mason (the only married grand-daughter) is a resident of Woodford. During the aftenoon two interesting photos were taken, a group of the relatives present and a four generation group, consisting of Mrs. Fogg, Mrs. W. Eaton, Mrs. S. B. Mason, and Vera Mason. At tea time Mr. Hendy, on behalf of the relatives, presented Mrs. Fogg with a beautiful morocco leather peggy-bag, and hoped that she would live many more years to enjoy the use of it. Mr. J. Chambers responded on behalf of Mrs. Fogg. Mr. Hendy then proposed the toast of "The Ladies," to which Mrs. Degnan responded. The visitors made their way to the Neurum School of Arts, where dancing was kept up till day was breaking.

    Notes 
    • Erin Go Bragh A meaning, Ireland Forever

      ERIN-GO-BRAGH.
      The Erin-go-Bragh, ship, 1100 tons, Captain Borlase, arrived on the 31st instant, from Queenstown, which port she left on the 7th of February last, with the following passengers :-(First cabin) : The Rev. P Dunn, the Rev. - Power, Miss Dunn, Mr. Charles Blackey, Mr. M'Donnell, Mr Bigges, Mr and Mrs. Jackson, Mrs. Borlase and child. Miss Borlase. (Second cabin): Mr. and Mrs. Kelts and child, Miss Lynan, Miss White, Mrs. Flynn, Miss Welsh, Mr. King, Mr. Cullen, Mr. Briggs, Mr. Roberts, Mr. Taylor, Mr. Stewart, Mr. Mead, Mr. Ainger, Mr. G. Nugent, Mr. J. Nugent, Mr. Allison, and 360 intermediate and steerage passengers.
      This vessel, we regret to say, was particularly unfortunate in point of health, as will be seen from the following report of her voyage.
      The Health Officer (Dr. Hobbs) went down to the bay in the Customs' boat from Eagle Farm about 6 a.m. on Sunday morning, 1st August, and, after boarding La Rochelle, and finding the immigrants in a perfectly healthy state, he proceeded at once across the bay to the Erin-go-Bragh, which vessel he found lying off the ship Patch. Hearing that the passengers had been affected with disease, the Doctor did not board, and, as usual under such circumstances, he directed that she should remain in quarantine for a few days, in order to allow of medical inspec- tion. In the meantime it was his intention to report the particulars of the case to the Government. We are mainly indebted to the same gentleman for the following particulars. The Erin-go-Bragh left Queenstown on the 7th of February last, with 431 immigrants. On the fourth day after leaving, typhoid fever and scarlatina broke out among the passengers, and continued to operate with fearful effect until the 10th of July last, at which date just three weeks ago-the last death occurred. During the voyage, we regret to state, that no fewer than 54 deaths took place, the great majority being confined to young children. We give below a list of the names, from which it will be seen that several families have been wholly or nearly decimated. On the other hand, there were 6 births.
      The voyage was protracted, owing to a succession of light and contrary winds. She left Hobart Town on the 18th July, and reached the anchorage ground at half-past 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The following is a complete list of the deaths, with the ex- ception of some three or four names, which Dr. Hobbs was unable to catch :
      James Murray, 17 months old ; James M'Quinn, 2 years; Bridget Dunn, 11 months; Michael Dunn, 9 months; William M'Cabe, 12 months; Bridget Connors, 13 months; Michael Edey, 1 year; Mary Kelly, 8 months; Denis Ealin, 4 months ; Margaret Byrnes, 2 years ; Peter Lyon, 2 months; Ellen Dempsey, 18 months; Peter M'Quinn, 4 years; AVilliam Helleyon, 8 years; John Ealín, 4years; Ann Flanagan, 18 months; Margaret Walsh, 2 years ; John Dempsey, 4 years; Essie Dempsey, 6 years; Philip Macloyne, 18 years ; Catherine Devine, 24 years ; John Quilchy, 14 years ; Jane Rigby, 58 years ; John Hannan, 24 years ; Patrick Byrnes, 2 days ; Mary Callaghan, 10 years ; Catherine Elliott, 8 months ; Catherine Byrnes,38years; Bridget Dunn, 10years; Mary Meek, 24 years ; Mary Hall, 19 months ; Ann Murray, 4 years ; Patrick Murray, 6 years ; Thomas Brien, 6 years ; Daniel Bryant, 2 years ; Bridget Macloyne, 4 years; Martha Byrnes, 7 years; Mary Welsh, 4 years; Catherine Ward, 60 years : Eliza Quenskilly, 9 years ; David Bryant, 4 years; Mary Dempsey, 14 years ; Patrick Gowan, 15 months; Catherine Ward, 19 years; Patrick Quinn, 3 months; Rhoda Rhenn, 11 years : Bessie Rofters, 19 years; Michael Dempsey, 11 years.

      It will be seen from the foregoing that the whole of the deaths, with the exception of some four or five, were confined to children. During the first 18 days after leaving the Captain reports that he experienced strong southerly and south-west gales, in course of which the vessel lost a large quantity of her fresh water through the rolling and shifting of the casks. This mishap compelled her to go into the Cape of Good Hope on the 13th May, for the purpose of replenishing, and thus some considerable delay was incurred. The captain states, moreover, that of the few adults who died, two were very aged persons, and quite unfit to stand the fatigues of a long voyage. He adds further that after leaving the Cape the Erin-go-Bragh had only one fortnight of fair winds.
      The reports of the medical officers being favorable, on the 7th, the Vessel was released from quarantine on the 8th instant, and on the next day the immigrats were brought up to the depot at Kangaroo Point, where an arrangement was made by which the married and single of both sexes received separate accommodation in different parts of the city. The single females were kindly provided for by the Rev. Dr. Quinn, the Roman Catholic Bishop. We need not pretend to describe the feeling of delight expressed in the countenances of the immigrants on reaching their final destination. All those who have experienced the hardships and annoyances of a protracted voyage will readily understand the feeling which must have actuated these people when once more placing their feet on terra firma in the land of their choice, especially after the amount of sickness and death they had witnessed. It is perhaps right to state that, during the time the vessel was in quarantine, the immigrants were permitted to exercise themselves, and otherwise to take the benefit of the fresh air, on one of the islands in the bay named St. Helena; but, owing to the difficulty of approach, we do not think that a very large number availed themselves of the privilege. Whilst lying in the bay a woman died of consumption, a man named Dan Meagher died of erysipelas, and a woman named Kellion in childbirth.
