Duncan McLennan

From on Thu, 27 Nov 2003
Greetings,
I can confirm that Seth PERSSE was a witness at the wedding of Fanny Emily Persse (aged 18) to Duncan McLennan, widower (Aged 31) in 1866.
I have a copy of their wedding certificate.
And on Thu, 09 Dec 2004
Hello Elizabeth,
Thanks for responding. At the moment I am trying to find the burial details of Fanny Emily McLennan (latest clue Melb. General Cemetery for me to check.)
For your information, there is a large but ancient photo of the McLennan brothers in the Matilda centre at Winton, Central Queensland. They were responsible for drilling the Number 1 Artesian bore that provided Winton with a permanent water supply. These would have been Duncan's sons. One, John James Farquhar McLennan (Jack) was my husband's grandfather. I believe the name Farquhar had some significance, as did the name Rollo - second name of Jack's daughter Jean. So far, I don't know why. Regards,
Kathleen McLennan
