Information & Research Journal.

Benjamin TONKIN and Mary TONKIN.

Marriage details for Benjamin and Mary not located. If I'm reading the records correctly they arrived in South Australia with three children in 1848, but this has not been confirmed. They had another eight children in South Australia.

Possible death for Benjamin is 22 January 1884 in Moonta, South Australia, aged 71 years.

Possible death for Mary is 17 September 1861, aged 38 years. Place of death not recorded. Mary's residence at time of death was given as Head of Kapunda, South Australia.

These are the eight children located in the South Australian records for Benjamin and Mary. I have also included another three possible children below.
