George Smith


From on Wednesday, 25 July 2012
Hi, My name is Bill Harris from Townsville I amhave hit a brick wall with a Ellen Fallon who married George Smith at St Francis Melb in Sept 1851 both were of age, no parents listed.
A witness was Ed Fallon, who I feel had to be a possibile brother or relative of the bride. So far have searched numerous records.
Only other clue I have is there was a Thomas Fallon arrived Vict with family but have not been able to locate this arrival. This information sent to me from another researcher but no relevent info on this arrival.
I am waiting on a police archives report on Ed Fallon who drowned whilst on duty crossing a creek. Victorian police honours board. Any suggestions on where to look now
Thank you, Bill
I can see a death in 1856 #4866, of Ed Fallon, an adult with unknown parents.
and a second - Edward Fallon 1867 #6167 aged 75, son of Ellen unknown and Thomas Fallon, from Galway.

Di wrote - I have almost completed another book - this one is about the South Australians who came here [Victoria] to the goldfields, to compliment the CD I published in 2007.
I am very pleased with this. It contains at least 40,000 names, has taken about four months and really looks good.
Fleureau PFHG are looking after the sales side of this book too.
Di Cummings has produced books entitled "Pioneers and Settlers Bound For South Australia" covering the years 1836,1837, 1838, 1839 and 1840. which are for sale by Fleureau Peninsula Family History Group Inc., who also have a search Room, open to members on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 12:00 noon until 1:30 pm.
