From on Tuesday, 3 April, 2012
Hi Elizabeth,
I came across your website while googling my great grandfather’s name – Henry John McCubbery. I have not spent much time looking into my family history to date but it seems that the McCubbery family is difficult to trace – possibly due to an altered spelling on arrival in Australia. In any case I wondered if you knew that the family of Henry John(married to Catherine Collins and living in Minyip) is incomplete on your site. There were 5 other children after the birth of Henry John in 1901. They were Alexander William(1903) Vivian Emmett (1907) Helena Josephine (1909-my grandmother), Colin Francis (1910) and Patrick who died as a baby but I am unsure of his year of birth.
Kind Regards, Sally
