from on Friday, 25 November 2011
Dear Elizabeth,
I have been researching my family tree and picked up your article through the web page of both John and Thomas Chamberlain who immigrated to Australia in 1853. My connection is through John and Caroline Chamberlain and one of their children Edward John Chamberlain who was born on 18th January 1856. You do not show in your article of Edward John but I have record of his birth. He married Alice Ann Reeves on 27th September 1880. Edward John was killed in an explosion at the flour mill in Dunolly where he was employed. The accident took place in July 1884. He was only 28 years old.
Their daughter Frances Emma Caroline Chamberlain married my Grandfather Thomas Andrew Gitsham in Boulder City Western Australia in 1906.
Their second daughter, Edith May Chamberlain was born in Barraport in the Wimmera in Victoria and she married Frederick Charles Rowe in Geelong in 1902. It appears that she died at the age of 63 in Victoria. I suspect that it may have been Geelong. Frederick Rowe died in 1940 and I enclose an article for the Argus newspaper in 1940 the year that Frederick Rowe died. I cannot confirm that it is the Frederick Charles Rowe although the date fit. He was born in Daylesford in Victoria in 1881.
Traveller Found Dead
I assume this newspaper cutting is from a Geelong paper dated about Aug 15, 1960, or a week later
Missing from his home in McKillop St, Geelong, since July 27, Frederick Charles Rowe, traveller, was found dead yesterday afternoon on the property of Mr C Kooper at Highton. Death apparentle occurred about two weeks ago. Later Mr P.G.H. Ritchie, deputy Coroner, opened an inquest and adjoined it to a date to be fiixed.

Kind regards, Ken & Marj Ogier,
