Hugh Woodburn

From on Wed, 15 Sep 2004
Hi Elizabeth
I recently stumbled across your excellent website and found it most interesting as both my parents families lived in the central victorian region.
However I would like to make a small correction to one entry in that the Robert Woodburn (my grandfather) who married Jane Deering (my grandmother) was not the son of John Woodburn and Barbara Young as stated.
He was born on the goldfields at Fryerstown in 1857 or 1858. His parents were Hugh Woodburn, a bootmaker and Janet Welch and I understand that they are both buried at the Tarnagulla cemetery.
After my grandfather married Jane Deering in 1908 when he was 50 years of age they ran the general store at Arnold until it was sold in 1940. After that they retired to Eddington where they are now buried.
They had five daughters as listed in your site, my mother being Rosetta Margaret Woodburn who passed away in 1999. All her sisters are also deceased.
Hoping this information is of use to you.
Regards, Bob Thomas
