    • ANCESTRY indicates John and Bridget Callaghan married on 23 Apr 1858 but in Mt Barker SA. Whereas genealogySA state location is at New Hamburg SA. At time of writing -Nov 2020- it is to be noted that New Hamburg is now referred to as Willyaroo-however since we are recording the facts from official records, we enter those details not current details. Any researcher can source current information, but it wont link them back to the original story nor the ORIGINAL SOURCE DOCUMENTS as is practise of genealogy.
      Both sites state the wedding is at a private address of James MacKenzie.
