"Frank" Carey was born in New York, United States of America.

Goldfields Involvement, 1854

Carey ran a restaurant in partnership with John Kelly. It was near Mrs Sarah Hanmer's theatre at Red Hill in 1854. In September 1854 Carey was imprisoned for six months for sly grog selling, but was given a conditional pardon after one month. Apparently Carey would not bribe the officials. Carey was later pardoned to mollify the Americans.[1]

He was a participant in the Eureka Stockade Battle battle. [2]
