“I was bound to bootmaking trade in the year 1855 at Lough Gur, County Limerick near Knockaney and Bruff. Then I commenced to work at the boot and shoe making trade at home Keylogues in the year 1857. Then getting on well. Times were very good. Crops and prices good. My mother, Ellen Connors died in January 5th 1862 and was buried in Ballylanders R.I.Peace. I was married to Ellen Frazer on the 5th March 1862. After that good times and bad times went round to the year 1878 and 1879 when crops failed. Corn crops did not ripen”.

 My brother, Pat Martin was born in March 1835 and married in the year 1866 to Mary Mahony.
 My brother, Pat Martin, and cousin Ben Martin and their families left home on the lst of July, 1878  Aboard the SS Oaklands bound for Adelaide, South Australia, a voyage of 8 weeks and 4 days.
The following immigrants for this colony are on board the SS Oaklands, which sailed from
Plymouth on July 5 and will be due at Adelaide On September 29 1878
(arrived Sturday, Sept 21st 1878 –  Ref. The South Australian Advertiser Report)
 – Nationalities.— On Board were English, 303; Irish, 103; German, 3.
Benjamin Martin m Joanna/Johanna Halloran b app 1835  Country Limerick –
Sailed for Australia on SS Oaklands to Adelaide arriving 22.9.1878
(Ben Martin was then 43yrs old) with 2 daughters Mary (3) and Johanna (9).
I have acquired death certificate for who we think is Ben – 10.12.1903 at Somerton near Glenelg, SA.
My Michael John Martin speaks of his father as William Martin and mother, Ellen Connors both buried in Ballylanders churchyard, which does not rule out it being an uncle. There are so many common names between the families! Joanna, Mary, Michael a link will have to appear soon – and we are looking at the same century! Info so far is:
 William Martin died 24.6.1880  had married Ellen Connors d 5.1.1862 (both buried Ballylanders)
Family known of are two Boys ‘Michael John and Patrick’
Michael John B1833 married Ellen Frazer born 12.1833 and married 5.3.1862 (don’t know where) travelled to Aust/Brisbane on RMS Dacca arriving 30.5.1887 (Michael John was then 54yrs old?)

(Benjamin Martin was married to Joanna/Johanna Halloran)
Benjamin (Ben). Martin, 40, agricultural laborer, wife and two children;
COUSINS mentioned in correspondence.
Mary and Ellena/Ellen Martin of Ballyfaskin daughters of Mrs Thomas Martin.
 Correspondence reads:
‘The last I remember to see from the train was your loving mother, Mrs Thomas Martin, Ellen Richardson, and she crying and roaring as the train turned around.’
It is hard to tell here whether Michael is talking about Mrs T Martin being Ellen Richardson (maiden) or whether he is referring to 2 people.
I have also been emailed death details for Johanna Martin 5.6.1883 at Glynde, SA. (have yet to find their graves – they may shed some light on children etc and cause of her death)
 “There are no births shown for a father Ben Martin in South Australia”.
I promise to keep in touch as I find the time. Thank you so again for your information.
