From "Jan Callander" < maljan at bigpond dot com > Sat, 28 Oct 2000
Henry KAHLE came to Victoria in about 1854 from Hanover, Germany and settled in Carngham. His occupation was miner and he married Mary Jane RUDGLEY of Dinton, Wiltshire in October 1865 at Carngham. He remained a miner all of his relatively short life and died in June 1885 at Snake Valley, Carngham aged 48. I have checked the "mine accident" listings, but it seems Henry was either very lucky or very careful, as he does not appear on these lists !

John Keam


From South Aust genealogy and Pakenham ship list
TRUSCOTT Ann (w?), ch My, Ann, Geo, Wm, Jas arrived 1849-03-21 on Pakenham from Liverpool via Plymouth
TRUSCOTT Ann (w) died 1850-06-05 aged 50 in Adelaide
John Keam wed Mary Truscott on 1849-07-07 in Adelaide. John Keam died in Bendigo in 1903 and Mary in 1907.
Fellow passengers George Rowe, wife and child and Mary Jane Rowe wed William Truscott 24.8.1850 both on board Pakenham this voyage
From a Rootsweb comment page
Mary Truscott born about 1824 perhaps in St Cleer to John Truscott and Mary
The sisters Mary and Ann Truscott from the Pakenham believed both wed in 1849 Kapunda, no father listed.
24yo Mary married John KEAM at Rev. Oldhams and I have trouble finding them in SA.
22yo Ann married Nicholas THOMAS at Wesleyan Chapel, stays in SA, has children and dies in 1903.
Another writer asked James Truscott that came here from England on the Pakenham what age was he?
His brother William on the same ship married Mary Rowe SA 1850 and died 1910 Rockley NSW, was close to the same age as my James who was born abt 1832.
Writer was told he was a child but the list I have states single male not child. No one on the familytree sites has info only one who states James was born 1832.
Another researcher says The William who married ROWE then moved to Victoria didn't arrive on the Pakenham.
This may be the William Truscott died at Brunswick East, 1894 #12400 aged 71, son of Mary Osbourne and Nicholas Truscott
