I wanted to share a photo of my Great Great Grandparents Francis Long and Catherine McGuigan who were born and married in Carlingford before migrating to Victoria, Australia. I would love it if you could put it in your online gallery.

The photo shows Francis and Catherine at the wedding of their daughter Rose to William Harris (my Great Grandparents) in 1907 at Maryborough, Victoria, Australia. The key image names Francis and Catherine and their seven children as well as William Harris and his mother Susan.

Francis was the son of John Long and Rose Rourke, baptised 14 January 1849, and the family lived at Ardtullybeg.

Catherine was the daughter of Stephen McGuigan and Catherine Malone, baptised 8 July 1847, and her family lived at Galtrimsland.

Francis and Catherine were married 23 May 1876 at the Chapel of Grange and arrived in Australia later that year in December.

Catherine died in 1925 and Francis died in 1938, both died in Melbourne and they are buried at Maryborough Cemetery.

Thank you, and please let me know if you would like any more information.
