From on Thursday, 18 September 2014,
Hi Elizabeth,
I got your email address off the research you and others had done on early settlers in Victoria.
I am a descendant of Margaret Monaghan and John McCaffrey through their daugther Kate. These two are notoriously difficult to find further information on and I wondered if you had anything further at all.
Best wishes, Philippa
