Susannah Wilson was the daughter of Mary Wilson, widow (my GGGrandmother) transported from Ireland. Susannah, born 17 Mar 1838 in Enniskillen, Fermanagh married Niels Peter Nielsen on 13 May 1858 in Hobart. They later made their home in Young, NSW; as did Susannah’s mother, Mary Wilson and her second husband, fellow convict, George Ballamy.  Susannah and Niels had several children born both in Hobart and Young. Susannah died in 1908 in Young, NSW.
