I am interested in the ancestors and descendants of Arthur Donnelly and Jane Harris.

Arthur Donnelly originally came either from Londonderry or Antrim in Ireland.

Arthur Donnelly came to Otago from Victoria in 1861 or 1862. After a short stay he went back to Victoria, but had only been a short time on the Bendigo diggings when word was sent him to come back to Otago at once. In less than a fortnight, he was in Tuapeka, and has resided in Wetherstones almost continuously since, except for a short time that he went to the West Coast rush.

I am interested in all dates.
