Beaton's of Edinburgh to Euroa

Journal by TracySW

William Beaton 1820 - 1908 immigrated to Australia from Edinburgh along with his wife Mary Thomson and his sister Isabella in 1841.
They settled in Euroa Victoria.
There are many newspaper clips and stories regarding their ill-fated voyage over on the ship the India which burned at sea. They later continued their voyage on the ship the Grindlay.
A few years later his mother Jane (nee Dick) and siblings Peter, Janet and Alison immigrated after William's father passed away. Euphemia came out a few years after them but her daughter came over earlier with her grandmother Jane.
Jane (Dick) remarried in 1869 to James Gaskill in Myrtleford, Victoria.

If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
Would you be proud of them or not,
Or don't you really know?
Some strange discoveries are made
in climbing family trees,
But some of them, you know,
Do not particulary please.
If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
There may be some of them, perhaps,
You would not care to know.
But there's another question
Which requires a different view;
If you could meet your ancestors,
Would they be proud of YOU?
