James says he was born in County Clare, Ireland. I am wondering if he changed his name to Carlon when he came to Australia as I can find nothing about him before he settled in Australia. If anyone can help me I would be so grateful as my efforts to find him keep coming up ZERO. In Australia he lived in the Mudgee/ Lithgow/Portland area's in NSW. In 1910 James owned the Royal Hotel in Lithgow/Bowenfields which he renamed the "Donnybrook Hotel". Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
