I have come to a Brick wall in trying to trace my Great Grandmother, [b]Annie Jane JAMES. [/b] Family Oral History has it that she was born In Galway, Ireland in 1826. Her father was Richard JAMES and her mother was Maria AITKINS or EKINS }I am not too sure of the accuracy of this information.

[b]FACT:[/b] Annie married [b]Edward Henry JONES [/b] [born in Wales in 1826] in the Tabernacle Baptist Church in New York, USA on 6th August 1854. They then travelled to Australia where their first child, Edward Henry Jnr. was born. His birthplace could have been New South Wales, Australia. They then travelled to Sebastopol, near Ballarat, Victoria, Australia on the Victorian Goldfields. Their other children were born here. Both Edward and Annie died in 1891 in Albert Park, a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

I would appreciate any help in tracing Annie's birth details and that of her parents.

Have a great life all,
regards,
