And I found a list of those who stayed: Not all of the other Fenians returned to Ireland, many like John Boyle O'Reilly escaped or were given free passage to America. At least 19 never managed to leave Australia's 'fatal shore' and their remains lay throughout the country. Here is a list of those Australian Fenian Graves: Luke Fullam (died 24/02/1870) & his brother Laurence (died (1871) are both buried somewhere in what was the old Skinner Street Cemetery, Fremantle. A school was later built on top of the graves that hadn't been moved. Patrick Keating (died 27/01/1874) was buried beside the Fullam brothers in the old Fremantle Cemetery. Cornelius O'Mahoney (died 06/03/1879) buried in Melbourne's Central Cemetery Carlton, under an ornate celtic cross, stating that he was 'a released political prisoner'. John Goulding (died 02/09/1883) buried in Gerringong Cemetery on New South Wales' south coast. Joseph Nunan (died 18/05/1885) buried in East Perth Cemetery, W.A. Cornelius Dwyer Kane (died 28/10/1891) buried somewhere in an unmarked grave in Limestown on the old Palmers gold fields of north Queensland. John Donoghue (died 28/02/1901) buried Jarrahdale Cemetery, south east of Perth. John Lynch (01/11/1906) buried in Williams Old Cemetery, south east of Perth. John Flood (died 22/08/1909) buried Gympie Cemetery, Qld. Thomas Duggan (died 24/12/1913) buried in an unmarked grave in East Perth Cemetery. James Kiely (died 31/10/1918) buried Karrakatta Cemetery, Perth. Hugh Brophy (died 11/06/1919) buried alongside Cornelius O'Mahoney in Melbourne's Central Cemetery, Carlton. James Kearney (died 23/05/1923) buried Nannup Cemetery, southern W.A. Patrick Kileen (died 01/09/1925) buried Karrakatta Cemetery, Perth. Nothing is known of the last resting place of the following, other than that their is no record of them having left Australia: Daniel Bradley Bartholomew Moriarty Patrick Wall James Flood Michael Cody Michael Cody remains the greatest mystery, his date of death and final resting place are unknown but he had lived in Sydney and according John Devoy he was the local head of the Irish Republican Brotherhood.
