This orphan has been claimed by: wendy yule

My Name is Wendy and Mary Sheehan is my 5xgreat grandmother.  Ive recently started my family history and have found it quite interesting. Mary married Samuel Linton who was a convict 6098.

Mary died at aged 40 falling off a cart on the way home from the pub due to drunkeness.

I haven't a picture of Mary but that doesn't stop me looking.

Are there any transcripts or pictures of Mary's stay at the orphanage?
