NSW Royal Veteran Stephen Meaney

I am looking for descendents of Stephen Meaney (native of Ireland) who came to Tasmania as part of the NSW Royal Veteran Battalion in 1826. Stephen was married to Mary / Margaret O'Callaghan. Before enlisting in the NSW Royal Veterans Corp he served in the 66th Regiment of Foot, 10th Veteran Battalion and 3rd Veteran Battalion.

As far as we can ascertain Stephen and Mary had 3 children.
