From Pam on Wednesday, 27 October, 2010
Hi Elizabeth,
I was looking around for further information about my Great Great Grandmother & came to your site via Google. You have Mary Ann Mousley's parents incorrectly listed.
I have attatched her wedding cert to Matthew James Rice for you (he is my great great grandfather).
Mary Ann's Parents were Richard Mousley ( 1797) & Mary Johnson (1788)
Siblings to MaryAnn were Emma (1832) & Fanny (1846).
Mary Ann's daughter Emma Louisa married William Moss.
Emma & William's daughter Violet Mary is my grandmother. Her son is my father.
Kind regards, Pam
