Matthias or Matthew O'Grady m. Mary McNamara C1852 arr Australia 1852. Family lived in Macclesfield Sth Australia in the Adelaide hills. I believe from Truagh/ Doonass area of E Clare. Many other E Clare families lived in Macclesfield/ Strathalbyn area in 19C. Some other names with connections to O'Gradys: McNamara, Considine, Nestor, Guerin, Hoobin, Cosgrave, Vaughan, Brennan, McCarthy, Casey, Bourke, Mears, Campbell. Other brothers/cousins? O'Gradys in area in SA: Patrick & Laurence. Matthias & Mary called their first son John & second son Martin, so these may have been paternal & maternal grandfathers' names. Remainder of O'Grady family believed to have gone to England & USA, but no contact kept as family did not write English. Still Irish speakers when they first migrated.
