Hi James I would like to contact you with reguard to likely matches between our ancestry. My line joine yours through my grandmother. Beatrice Winifred Tipping (nee Audley) daughter of Charles Audley and Mary Ann Audley (nee Sharples).
I am looking for information on Antonio Sierra. I believe he was born in Puerto Rico. I do know he died in Puerto Rico. He lived with his family in Naranjito, PR for several years. His wife was Maria Josefa Padilla Padilla and they had several children: Antonia, Herminio, Abraham, Jose Antonio and Miguel Angel. This person is my grandfather and the only information that I know is that he died by 1963 and that is an estimate; I don't have a definite date of death nor know his birthdate. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
Mary Axanter was the daughter of Frederick and Harriet Axanter/Alexander (Nee: Horne). Her father was born in Frankfort on the Maine, Germany. It is not known why or when he came to Australia only that he was a shepherd on "Yarrowyck" Station, Walcha NSW Australia. Mary's grandfather (George Horne) was also a shepherd.
Any information on the Axanter family (who later changed their name to Alexander and/or White ) would be much appreciated.
Looking for Mary DEAN (1849 - 1914) the daughter of George DEAN and Elizabeth SPARGO. Mary was born Windsor NSW Australia and settled in Glen Innes NSW after her marriage in 1874 to Thomas DAVY (1853 - 1937).
Any information on Mary's family would be much appreciated.
Looking for information on Carl William SCHULZ/SCHOLZ (son of Vilhslm SCHULZ and unknown)born in 1865 Hannover West Germany. Carl immigrated to Australia and at the time of his marriage (in 1888) to Christina Wilson COSH was a schoolmaster at Broken Hill, NSW.
He was naturalised in Australia and then became more commonly know as Charles Leslie SCHOLZ. Carl was also a Consulting Engineer and Mining Inspector Ph.D. and many years later left Australia for England and set up a business in London . . . and in this capacity travelled the world.
He was last heard of during the latter part of WWI. What happened to him then remains a mystery to this day. Any information with regards Carl, his early life, his parents and/or siblings (or other family) would be much appreciated.
Alexander HENDERSON was born in Scotland 16 Aug.1796 and was named John Alexander Henderson? Possibly the son of James Henderson and Agnes CAIRN or CAIN.
Agnes GRAHAM was the daughter of George GRAHAM and Mary COLTART? According to the Parish Records of Kirkunzeon, Scotland Agnes was baptised 9 Sept.1802. Alexander and Agnes HENDERSON (Nee: Graham) were married in 1820 at Kirkunzeon, Scotland. Indications are that Alexander was also using the name HETHERINGTON around this time?
Alexander was a teacher of music in Edinburgh in 1834 and by 1851 the family were living in Kensington, London. Here his occupation was that of Classical Tutor/Teacher/Teacher of Languages.
Thomas Constant PAGET MORTON (1788 - 1867) and Eliza THOMSON MAY CHAPPELL (1795 - 1867) were both born Appledore, Devonshire England and died Port Macquarie NSW Australia.
Thomas, Eliza and family immigrated to Australia in 1833. Thomas was a retired Naval Commander by then and some of Eliza's family also served in the Royal Navy. They were married in 1814 Northam, Devonshire England.
If any one has any information on their ancestry in England it would be greatly appreciated. I have quite a lot of information on their descendants.
