Arrived as single man

Graham was awarded a temporary pension which ended 1st April 1852 and from that time was not mentioned in the War office records.
He is not mentioned as having left the Colony before that date and so far has not turned up in any shipping records or BDMs of any state in Australia.
He may have returned to Ireland, but our records about this man come to an end in 1852 – when he was still a relatively young man of thirty years of age.
