From on Tue, 7 Sep 2004

Hello Elizabeth.
Came across your pages at Australian Pioneer Families.
A little correction for you.
James Horn was born 09.05.1834 In Mossley. He died 14.06.1887 in Chiltern Victoria. (You picked the wrong death entry) Esther Austerberry was born in Oldham Lancashire.
You ask where is Indigo, place of Hannah Horn's Birth...The Indigo was the gold diggings site . She is said to have been born on the site of the present Post Office in Chiltern.
Regards Lorraine
