Patrick Dunn junior Born 9 March 1840 (probably Tipperary)
Son of the above.
Died January 16 1868 Age 26 Morbus cordis (heart disease)
Buried in Plot 109 Melbourne General Cemetry
 
According to the headstone, Bridget and Patrick were "natives of Ballintogher, County Tipperary. Ireland"
 
All three emigrated on the ship Joseph Cunard in 1841 to Australia. 
 
Partick and Bridget had two other children, Ellen and Roger, both of whom are buried in the same plot.
 For some reason, their son Patrick (1840-1868) is buried with my great, great grandfather Thomas Dunn 
and his family in Plot 109 and NOT in 107 with his parents, even though his name is on their headstone. 
There are other relatives of Patrick and Bridget buried with my Dunn's as well and I'm trying to find the 
connection between the two Dunn families. I still can't find Thomas on any ships list, although I know he 
came to Australia around 1841 at age 50. He was a native of Kildare.
