Attached is Nehemiah & Mary Ann Price's marriage certificate. The hand-written detail is rather obscure on the copy.

Date 17/4/1855, St James' Church, Melbourne.
Nehemiah: Bachelor, b. Tullamore, Kings' County. Labourer, Parents: Abraham Bagnall, carpenter & Mary Price
Mary Ann: Spinster, b. Kilfane, County Kilkenny, Housemaid, Parents: James Roache, farmer & Honora Murphy.

NOTE: By the way, when I was travelling around Ireland, I went to the catholic church in Thomastown, Kilkenny. I found the old priest there and he let me loose with the original registers from last century for the area. I found James Roache & Honora Murphy listed and found that Mary Ann was born 23/12/1827. I have a birth/baptismal certificate for her if anyone is interested. I also found a sister, Catherine, born 27th Jan the same year!! It gave you a special feeling to be looking through handwritten documents that were 170 odd years!
