The ORGAN immigrants from Ireland have been traced back to County Clare, Dungarvan in County Waterford and Milford in County Cork.

Seeking information on the following:

  • Garrett ORGAN
  • Mary ORGAN
  • Garrett ORGAN (1)
  • Mary ORGAN (2)
  • Mary ORGAN (2)
  • Garrett ORGAN (2)
  • Margaret ORGAN
  • James ORGAN & Hanora WALSH
  • Michael Lowry ORGAN
  • Ellen ORGAN

Garrett ORGAN, his two sisters Anastasia ORGAN and Mary ORGAN (parents Michael ORGAN and Alice GORMAN), arrived in Australia from Dungarvan, County Waterford, Ireland in 1858 aboard the ship 'Empress Eugenie'

James ORGAN born c1824 Co Clare and his wife Honora WALSH born c1834 County Clare. They were married in 1856 in Victoria, Australia. No shipping records at this stage.

John ORGAN (son of John ORGAN & Margaret SHEEHAN) born c1833 County Waterford, married Catherine MURPHY born 1841 County Waterford, in 1864 at ?? and had three children in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. (No shipping details at this stage.)

Irish free settlers to Australia 1846 to 1867. Margaret ORGAN, aged 25 years, from Clare, arrived 12 Oct 1853 on the 'Ellenborough' Mary ORGAN, aged 23 years, from Clare, arrived 6 June 1851 on the 'Emperor'

Daniel J. Organ (Yakima, Washington, USA), I am looking for information about my great-great grandfather's family. His name was Garrett Organ. He was born in County Waterford, Ireland in 1805 and emigrated to the US (Minnesota) in the 1850's.

liz Brown (nee Organ), (Christchurch, New Zealand), is trying to trace her Great Grandfather, Michael Lowry Organ, Born 25 Dec 1834 in Dungarvan Co Waterford Ireland, who came to N.Z. via Melbourne, Australia in 1866, arriving in Hokitika and has reason to believe that he left siblings in Victoria, perhaps the Ballarat area. Two brothers may have also come to N.Z. but didn't remain here. I have names but they disappear from records about 1886.   The ORGAN's I am researching are from Co Waterford Ireland. I would be interested in hearing from anyone with a connection.

Tony Silcock (Hertfordshire, England), I am interested in tracing Ellen Organ, d of Timothy Organ possibly born Dungarvan, County Waterford, Ireland c 1874 or 1864. Only other name I have is John Organ, possibly a brother. Moved to Liverpool between 1890 and 1900.
