Thanks to Jonathon Woodgate for sending this in.

My great-great-grandparents, John McIntyre and Teresa Armstrong, were born and raised in Co Fermanagh in Northern Ireland. However, before emmigrating to Australia, they were married in Glasgow. This occurred in the early 1870's, because their second child, a girl named Mary (my grandmother's aunt), was born here in Queensland in 1872. Their first child, a boy, was born mid-journey, but died young. John died in 1897 and is buried in the small Queensland town of Stonehenge. Teresa subsequently remarried, her second husband an Englishman born in Middlesex, and bore him a son (my grandmother's uncle). Teresa died in the Queensland city of Mackay in 1918 of the bubonic plague, an outbreak of which was the direct result of a cyclone that hit the area three weeks beforehand... I do not know John's parents' names, but Teresa's parents were James Armstrong and Mary O'Brien. John and Teresa had a number of children together, including my great-grandfather, Patrick, whose younger daughter was my grandmother, whose one and only daughter was my mother.

I hope someone might find this information useful.
