There are some BROGANs buried in the Rylstone cemetery (AustCemIndex). I wonder if Cecelia BROGAN is Mrs BROGAN picture above?

  1. Hello Today. I find here you are speaking or writing about my Paternal Ancestors. I do not know if you have Catherine Brogan in your file. She is the daughter of Charlotte Matilda White and John Brogan who was a convict in Tasmania. Catherine Brogan Married Joseph Silva, who jumped ship in Hobsons Bay, with 11 other seamen in 1855 near Sorrento. My original question is, do you know the Christian name of this Photo you have above. Mrs Brogan of Brogans Creek. I do hope you can help me. Thank you so much

    1. Hi Lyn,
      Unfortunately the details for this item in the collection of the Cottage Museum ( run by the Rylstone District and Historical Society do not record the Christian name of Mrs BROGAN. I will try to find out more about her if I can.
