According to Carl Smith Card 00086365GIF Edward George Burke married Maria Luisa Moore, widow of Jacobus (James) Moore at St. Joseph's Church on 11 February 1893. Carl Smith mysteriously adds "here on ship", so I don't know if the couple were married on board ship and that the marriage was later formalised at St Joseph's Church. I believe that Maria (Mary) may have been the mother of Annie Louisa Moore Burke who married John Olson jnr., my grandmother's half-brother and that Edward may therefore have been her step-father. Edward Burke's parents were Edward and Emilia Dyer of Dublin.
