Hi Brendan, my grandmother was Nora O Leary's cousin. Her name was Ada Porter, her mother was Maria Charlotte O Leary and her grandfather was Henry O Leary. Henry came out to Australia in the 1800's, settled in Melbourne and then later moved to the Western Australian Goldfields. Charlotte as she became known was the first white lady of the Coolgardie Goldields and the largest working mine in Australia was named after her. Hope this helps in your search.
