bullet  General Notes:

Catherine and her sister Mary were employed by Chief Justice Dowling after they arrived together in Sydney on the Duchess of Northumberland.

In July 1839 Catherine married Hugh Morgan at St Marys Roman Catholic Church in Sydney. The witnesses were Catherine's father Michael and her fellow Duchess of Northumberland emigrant Ann Mullane. When Ann Mullane married James Watson at St Mary's in 1839, one of the witnesses was Michael Keller (sic) who was quite possibly Catherine's father. ... it appears the Morgan couple had at least six children and Catherine (nee Keleher) died in Sydney in 1869.

Her death record suggests she was born in 1819. It also lists her mother's name as Catherine (surname unknown) but this may be incorrect. She is buried in the Roman Catholic Section at Rookwood, Location: M1 4 1045. There is no Headstone, just a bare plot (February 2011).

Her age in her burial record is recorded as 59 which would make her birth year 1810.

She emigrated to Sydney on the Duchess of Northumberland in 1836.

She worked as a Laundress in 1936 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
