Denis Hagan’s name was on the Nominal list for the Enrolled Guard 1880 but he does not appear to have been chosen
Erickson considers that Denis and Ann Hagan may have had another 7 children who died in their infancy(!)
Denis Hagan is recorded as being a Corporal at Sebastopol in the Crimean War Casualties list: He was also appointed Corporal for the voyage of the Corona to WA in 1866
