Do you know George Plant's parents names? Easier to look for his death. Kerri

Marlene Report 9 Jul 2006 05:49

Hi Kerri, Thanks for the information on George Plant's marriage. Their son was Arthur Edward Plant b1888, not Albert, sorry was probably my typing error. Would you mind searching for Arthur's birth. Georges' parents were James Plant and Sarah Plant (Holloway). George arrived in Australia in 1859 with his Holloway family, his mother and father had dissappeared by the 1851 census. Thanks again Marlene.

Thanks for trying Kerri, I've made a reference of Jas Lawson you found will try for his DC. Re Ronald MacDonald, I know I'll find out about his existence before 1872. I've got the MacDonald determination or maybe its stubboness. Regards Liz

Hi Kerri Thanks for the very kind offer. I am having problems with a family who I know emigrated to Australia but don’t know when they arrived or if they arrived together. What I do know is….. Mrs Sophia Dabinett (nee Davey/Davis) and 2 children, Henry and Edward – sailed on the Rodney. During the voyage she had another child, Sophia, born Nov 1878. Am trying to find out if her husband, David Dabinett was with the family for same voyage, or if he arrived later. Fellow researchers are having problems with David as he seems to have been a witness to his brothers marriage in December! lol We know they went on the have another 7 children in South Australia but the next one wasn’t born till 1882, which makes us wonder if David followed later? Any help much appreciated. Sue

Thank you Kerri, you just gave me the names of my grandfathers siblings, whom we thought there may have been some, but had no idea on names, dates etc. Thank you again, you are doing a wonderful service to us family historians.. Warmest regards Marlene Farr Victoria Australia.

Kerri - you are a star! Many thanks for that. But can I double check on something, please? You give David Dabinetts parents as William Dabinett and Mary Davey - is this correct? Am querying as I have parents as William Dabinett and Sophia Biship. If you are correct, then it looks like there were 2 Davids born that year.


Kerri Report 10 Jul 2006 12:08

Hi Sue Yes,this is the information regarding David's parents listed on the 'South Australians 1836-1885.' BUT, this information has been submitted therefore subject to errors. Kerri

Gina Report 11 Jul 2006 01:39

Hi there, I'm probably not going to be able to give you enough info for a look up but here goes anyway. I have a photo of Thomas CANETE holding 2 babies and it says it's my husbands, Maurice Davey who is 50yrs, greatgrandfather. Is there any chance you could give me anything to go on. I know it's a long shot. His daughter was only known as nanna Deller which doesn't help much. The children he is holding are Raymond Wadsworth and Ron Deller,grandsons. Any hints would be gratefully received, many thanks Gina


Heather Report 11 Jul 2006 07:42

Hi Kerri, Could you please look up the SA biographical index for any sign of a Thomas James Howard between 1845-1851. Possibly with wife Mary. Thanks...Heather

Hi Kerry Really long shot but here goes. Jessie McCarthy sailed on Otway Mar 1910. I have a marriage in 1916 VIC for jessie Mccarthy and William Edward Rodier. Think this could be my Jessie. Is there any other info available to confirm i.e. parents details or can you find me any children for them? Believed to have stayed in Victoria. Thanx in advance Laura

Hi Heather No Thomas James Howard listed on BISA. Found births to Thomas Howard & Mary Burrows between 1883 to 1895.Is this the family you are looking for? Kerri

Hi Laura Children of Wm Edward Rodier & Jessie Louisa/Louise McCarthy Iris May b 1916 at Dean reg no 28814 Roy Henry 1920 at Dford no 11587 Wm Jno 1918 at Dean no 10522 I looked for death of Jessie but none found up to 1985. Then I thought perhaps if her husband died & she remarried ,she would be listed as that. Kerri PS see next message
