Wallaroo

I am seeking information about my great-grandmother Margaret (Maggie) SHEA born abt. 1871 and died 31 August 1946 in East Guildford Western Australia. Death certificate says born in Wallaroo South Australia and married to Christopher MARTIN in South Australia but no records exists. Marriage would have been prior to 1907. May have had a brother William and sisters Jo (Josephine?) and Poll (Polly?). Issue: Dorothy MARTIN (died in teens), Christoper Berriman Maxwell MARTIN, Elizabeth Ann Eleanor MARTIN (born 22/3/1907 m. MOYLE). Known to have resided in Hindmarsh South Australia and Kalgoorlie/Boulder Western Australia. Spouse (Christopher MARTIN) born in UK 25 December 1856 and beleived to have arrived in Australia circa 1886. His parents were Christopher Berriman MARTIN and Elizabeth Ann BRAY.

Might now have more info - its possible Margaret is the daughter of Daniel and Bridget SHEA nee TULLY who were married in Victoria in 1857. Any of those names ring a bell with you? They also had a daughter Bridget born 1869 and a son Donald Patrick born 1873.
