I'm searching for info on my maternal great-grandmother. She was born in South Tipperary with the surname Dwyer. She was born in the 1860s. She married an O'Brien in the 1870s.

Thomas, my husband's O'Brien/Dwyer line is a little earlier than yours, but this is what we have.
Thomas O'Brien was born to Thomas O'Brien and Mary Ryan about 1814 at Glassdrum, Cappawhite, Tipperary. His parents were married at Anacarthy, Co Tipperary on 3 February 1813.
Thomas, born 1814, married in 1853 at Knockavilla, Tipperary to Ellen (or Eleanora) Dwyer (O'Dwyer). Ellen was the daughter of Patrick and Johanna Dwyer. Patrick's occupation was a cooper.
In 1862 Thomas and Ellen and children Bridget 8 years and Johanna 5 years sailed on the Ship "Theresa" for Australia. Family lore says Thomas was a widower prior to his marriage to Ellen. Also it has been written that Ellen wanted to come to her brothers in Australia. Regards Denise

Ihave a John and Johanna Dwyer immigrating from Ireland via the ship Maitland to Tasmania 1854-- settling in the Westbury area and then Latrobe. Apparently her maiden name was Burke. They had 12 children and many years after her husband died she married my g.g.grandfather Henry Cook who was previously married to Honora O'Brien.
