Elizabeth I believe my great great grandmother Mary Plumb wife of Thomas Conboy is the sister of Robert Plumb . She arrived in Melbourne in May 1860 on the Atalanta and was indentured to her brother Robert in Geelong . She later married Thomas Francis Conboy in Ararat 1864 I knew Robert's wife was Maria and that children Jessie and Eleanor died young and are buried at Geelong as is Robert who died in 1874 and Maria
Thank you Bruce Conboy

From on Sunday, 26 April, 2009
Hi Elizabeth, I happened across your web site, with Charles PODGER, husband of Anna Mary BLAKE.
You show Charles as son of George Laurence PODGER & Elizabeth 'Betsy' Jane BARNETT.
I have this Charles, who is my wife Kim's gg grandfather, as the son of Charles James PODGER & Esther KIDWELL. I'm fairly certain this is correct, but my mind is always open. Do you have any evidence suggesting otherwise?
Regards, Steven Knowles
Answer - Hi, Do you have the marriage certificate of Charles PODGER, and Anna Mary BLAKE dated 1884 registration number 78. What parents names are on it?
I do not purchase certificates, rely on the Indexes, which everyone knows have holes. For example the two children of Esther and Charles
(as listed in Rootsweb)
Charles PODGER b: 11 MAY 1859 in Northcote, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Sarah Ann PODGER b: 1861 in Collingwood, Victoria, Australia
are not registered using Esther (I found these listings because I used the christian name and date of the child being wanted, and Po* for surname
PODGER Charles Married KELDWELL Ester in 1857 registered #2602
and
POGHER Charles Born to Charles and Hester KIDDELL at NCOTE registered 1859 #5584
