From on Friday, 3 September, 2010

Hello Elizabeth
I was in contact with you earlier asking about the Alexander Swanson marriage to Elizabeth Navy at Plumstead Kent as we had his marriage elsewhere. I have recently accessed his Army discharge from the recently released Chealsea Pensioner list ( we knew he was a Chelsea pensioner previously) which I can send you a copy if you wish. From this I found that his regiment was 78th Foot so I am able to have the military records searched and should get it in the next couple of weeks. This should confirm his marriage so I will let you know. The Plumstead marriage is probably the one, but we shall see.
By the way Mary Swanson who married Alexander Simpson moved up to Queensland and five children after Charles Simpson b 3 July 1863
2. Janet b. 18 October 1866 in Oakey QLD. m. 10 May 1905 Spouse William Henry Walters died 1932
3. Alexander Simpson (my grandfather)b. 2 March 1869 Dalby QLD. m. Mary Jane Davies 17 Dec 1898. d. 7 July 1945 in Toowoomba
4. Alexandrina b. 3 August 1871 in Warwick QLD died 25 May 1948 in Toowoomba QLD m. William Snow 13 April 1898 in Toowoomba.
5. Grace Simpson b. 24 April 1874 in Acacia Creek Tenterfield NSW died 11 April 1963 in Brisbane Vic m. 06 Oct 1893 Spouse Alexander George Simpson (Cousin) in Warnambool
6. James b. 10 Nov. 1877 d. 13 Nov 1878 QLD.
