Hughes Descendants of Walter Hughes - Born Tuam - 1841

Walter Hughes (my great grandfather) was born in Tuam, Galway circa 1841, and died 19th June 1902 in Red Jacket, Victoria, Australia. He married Julia Ronan on 27th July 1868 at Red Jacket. Her parents were Denis & Bridget Ronan (nee Sullivan). Julia was born circa 1845 in Rossmore, Galway and died 7th May 1902 in Red Jacket, Victoria.

They moved from town to town, Walter worked as a gold miner and they followed the strikes. Although most of their time was spent in the Walhalla district, and further up into the mountains. Red Jacket, Dry Creek, Jericho, Woods Point, were just some of the places they lived. 

They had a rather large family although pretty normal for the time I guess. Children of Walter & Julia Hughes are:
