Frederick Dean


From on Saturday, 22 February, 2014
Some Information about Frederick Dean on your page was incorrect.
Family history- he is my great grandfather.
Frederick Dean was born at Campaspie, near Bendigo, Victoria in 1852. He was the son of Thomas Dean and Zilpah Watson.  They arrived in Australia 16th February, 1844 on the “Wallace”. He married Mary Rowlands 1879.  They lived Riggs Creek, 8 miles west of Violet Town, victoria. The entries about their children are correct, except Thomas John birth date should be 1887 and they had 6 children, Pricilla born 1890 is missing.
Frederick had a brother but not the Henry on your page.  His brother was Henry Watson Dean born 1836 in Sydenham England, but he never married.
It is better to have family history correct if it is possible.
Yours sincerely, Helen Williams
