I am not related to the O'Briens but volunteer to do research for people. I am researching the family of Simon O'Brien - the brother of John. I have not found what happened to John but have a lot of information on Simon's family.
One daughter is listed as Margaret Madeline or Sister Madeline- I can no find a birth for her. There was also a daughter Jane Ann Katherine born 1888 died in Maryborough.
Catherine Gertrude died in Mackay on 8 May 1926 - unmarried. A photo of her headstone is on the net.
