|Photograph of an unknown man from Susan Ellis (nee Hehir) Photo Album.|
This photograph is a Carte de visite, c1880s/1890s. There are no identifying marks on the front of the photograph.
|On the back of the photograph there is a photographer's stamp: "W.S. Read / Photographer."|
The man in this photograph does look similar to the young man in the photograph taken at Narrandera I posted last Sunday, similar enough that they could possibly be brothers. But who are they?
I searched the New South Wales Births, Deaths and Marriages Indexes again and found the following record which may or may not be relevant:
James P. O'Haire married Isabella Dobinson, Tweed River District, 1890 (Reg. No. 5118/1890).
There are also later records for the surname 'Hair' in the Murwillumbah District and Ballina District. I would love to hear from anyone who is researching the name Hehir/O'Haire or variations, or the name McMahon, in that area of northern New South Wales. Thanks.
