William J NELLIGAN

Daniel John Nelligan was a single man working on the Sons of Gwalia mine.  He met (not sure how) a Mary Elizabeth O'Donohue from Mount Malcolm.  They married in the Mechanics Institute at Malcolm in 1900 and set up home in Gwalia. We know very little about these years. Their 1st son William Nelligan was born in 1902 and died 5 weeks later. We believe he died from Dysentery. A second child called Monica Mary born in 1904 with another son Daniel Junior in 1906.  Sometime circa 1910 a large storm destroyed the Catholic Church at Gwalia and Daniel being a good Irishman took it a upon himself to arrange for the church to be rebuilt.  By 1913 the family had left Gwalia and had shifted to Beermullah near Gingin.  Shortly afterwards Daniel Snr received a scroll of appreciation from the Pope, Pius 10th, at the Vatican. The Leahy family still has the original scroll - From Mark Leahy.
