From on Friday, 10 January, 2014,
Hi I just found your site and found my gt gt grandfather Samuel Henry Farrall and supermum Margaret! After their marriage split up he went on to father 2 more children the last one when he was in his 70s!!
I have been researching my pioneer families. Do you add families to your list? i have documents and sources for the families. They include:
John Cail born Hampshire, and Amy Williams. He was in the Royal Navy, came to the Ballarat goldfields, present at Eureka, included in 3 books about Eureka incl. the Eureka encyclopaedia.
Henry Dennis, miner from Camborne Cornwall, came to the Bendigo goldfields, became a farmer in Drummartin near Elmore, a Wesleyan Methodist written about in the book "Out and about in Bendigo."
John Nixon b. Stockport England. Came to Van Diemens land and then was an alderman in Geelong for many years. Your website is great. I can appreciate the hours of work you have put into it.
Many thanks. Kay
