MARY ANN DELANEY first married JAMES BOYD, who came from Wicklow, Ireland. They were married 11th October, 1862 and had one son, JAMES, born 8th August, 1864.

We do not know what eventuated in the marriage after that, but it is evident that Mary Ann formed a relationship with JAMES HENDRY, who was the son of John Hendry and Ellen McGinley, and who was born 26th December, 1844 at Narrawa NSW. John and Ellen had one other son that we know of, Michael Hendry born 1847 at Yass, who married Mary Ann Deeham in 1875 at Grabben Gullen, NSW. Michael Hendry died in 1883, with his death registered at at Carcoar, NSW. Mary Ann had also died by this time, having given birth to the one child, John F Hendry in 1876, registered at Carcoar.

Issue of Michael Hendry & Elizabeth Cummins

Myrtle, Catherine and Florence Hendry all died from tuberculosis.

This account of the accidental death of JOHN JOSEPH HENDRY, son of Mick and Elizabeth, was taken from "The Western Champion" Newspaper of Thursday July 24, 1924.

Mr Jack Hendry Killed

A shocking accident which occurred on Thursday last about four miles from Gunningbland, in the direction of Gunning Gap, resulted in the death of Mr Jack Hendry, the well-known teamster, of High Street, Parkes.

It appears that Mr Hendry was engaged with his team carting pine logs to the sawmill. He was riding alongside his team, through a lane, and leaned over to adjust a coupling by which his near side wheeler was coupled to the pinner chain, without noticing that a tree growing by the track was too close to the roadway to allow him to pass with his riding horse between the tree and the team.

The corner of the waggon caught the riding horse on the rump, jambing him against the tree, and Hendry, who was leaning over, overbalanced and fell beneath the wheels of the waggon, which passed over him. The unfortunate fellow was killed instantly. His jaw was broken and his skull fractured.

A young fellow who accompanied Hendry, but was riding on top of the load of logs at the time, saw the whole of the incidents leading up to the fatality, to the point where the driver overbalanced and fell. The horses were pulled up after travelling about 25 yards.

On Friday, at Bogan Gate, Mr T.P. McQuade, the Trundle Coroner, held an inquiry, where medical evidence respecting the cause of death was tendered by Dr. Overend (Trundle) and a finding of accidental death in accordance with the medical testimony, returned.

The remains were brought to Parkes and interred in the Anglican cemetery on the Friday afternoon, the Rev. Thomas Mathers, B.A., conducting the burial service, in the absence of the Rev. R. Seymour Smith.

By the sad accident a wife and three young children are bereft of a breadwinner, and have the deepest sympathy of the whole of the community in their irreparable loss.
