I am trying to find information on Kate O'Grady, and her parents John and Mary O'Grady from Kerry, Ireland. Mary's maiden name is unknown. I think that Kate may have also had a brother named Michael O'Grady, and I have been told by a grandchild of Kate's that she may have also had a sister. Kate was born on the 25th of December 1858, in Kerry, Ireland. Kate would have been about 8 years old, in around 1866, when she came to New Zealand from Ireland with her parents. I have not been able to find what ship Kate came over with her family on. I have estimated this date from the amount of years living in New Zealand listed on her death certificate. Other than Kate's parent's names nothing is known about any of them them. ???
Kate O’Grady married John Timmins on the 17th of March 1879 at St Mary's Church, Hamilton East, New Zealand. John and Kate had 10 children named, Patrick Francis Timmins, Alicia Timmins, John Timmins, Michael James Timmins, Edward Joseph Timmins, Eugene Timmins, William Timmins, Thomas Percy Timmins, Charles Patrick Timmins and Ernest Leslie Timmins.
John died on the 21st of November 1918 in Somerstown, Te Aroha, New Zealand and his wife, Kate died on the on the 12th of August 1954 in Auckland, New Zealand.
