A view from the Cootehill-Rockcorry Road

John McCabe and Bridget Farley emigrated to Australia in the early 1880′s. One of their daughters, Katherine, had been sent to Pittsburgh to live with an aunt. Katherine never saw her family again. The McCabes lived in Sydney until the Western Australian gold rush of the 1890′s. When Bridget moved with some of her children to Boulder City near Kalgoorlie, her husband John decided to return to Ireland.
