Location: Tasmania, Australia
Surnames/tags: Gray Hughes Tasmania, Australia
My great-great-grandmother, Theresa Maria Gray, probably born in 1840 in Launceston, Tasmania, certainly married John Hughes in 1864 at Circular Head, Tasmania. They went on to have two children (Willie and Lydia).
When the children were still very small Theresa disappears from the face of the earth. Even though they were living in a small community (Forest, near Stanley, Tasmania) there is no mention of her dying in the newspaper (which normally mentions when somebody scratches their nose) and there is no death certificate.
For that matter, there is no birth certificate either. There are birth and death certificates for her siblings (large family of free Irish settlers) so why not for her?
What happened to her?
I would dearly love to know and to connect with any Gray descendants. Her parents were Thomas Gray and Mary (née Maguire) from Dublin. They emigrated in 1833. I believe they settled in Launceston first, then by 1841 they were at Forest, Circular Head. I have researched the Grays in Tasmania as extensively as I could, but to no avail.
Does anyone know what happened to Theresa?
