Stephen P. Stafford from the State of Victoria, Australia. My Irish ancestors were John Stafford and Mary Stafford (nee Carey) who came from Ballyvaloon, in the Parish of Aghada, County of Cork before migrating to Australia in 1838 and eventually settling in the Warrnambool area in the western district of Victoria.
my information shows John Stafford born C.Cork married Mary Condon born 1798-1887, as john stafford born 1805 parents. Mary Carey born 1814-1887, his wife and her parents john carey 1794 and helen noonan 1796 born Agahada Co. Cork. thats all i have
