I'm looking for the family of Bridget Hogan immigrated with parents Dennis and Johanna Hogan from Doon County Clare Ireland to Jersey City New Jersey at the end of the great famine. Bridget then sailed on the "Ostrich" to Australia landing in Adelaide 1854/5. She married Charles Hodge in Gawler and the settled in Port Augusta South Australia. I have details of Bridget's Australian family but I am now seeking information about her parents Dennis and Johanna Hogan and their ancestry in Ireland.
