Totally Useless...

Please read the question carefully before answering, as it saves everyones time...

If you read the post correctly it says-'Charles Harper and his descendants'. I for one WAS interested as were many who had never heard of him. No need to have a hissy.

I see you are a very new member. I have been for months. I for one am very appreciative of ngairedith! She is a kind, dedicated, intelligent and experienced researcher. I have seen her give fabulous research to our members. They may ask her another question, and then another. She is patient and will not give up. If she has exhausted her voluminous materials, she will not forget you, but come back later with the info the member is looking for. If you give her reliable information, she will come through! Go through her journals and see for yourself the praise she receives. I have. To me she is one of the very best! You are new and ignorant of family tree circles. You were rude to ngairedith. It is members such as yourself that puts a sigh of grief in the hearts of the thousands of members. Be a real man and apologize to ngairedith.

well, boonanarring said "read the question carefully before answering" and then HE doesn't read carefully before HE anwers.
You already said it was about a DESCENDANT :)

then he says "that is all information that i already know" which is arrogant because he presumes you wrote it for him when you said you wrote it for his readers (to give them more info to work with Im sure) and WE didn't know about him before this journal

Your journal above is so FULL of valuable information on his son Charles Harper & family that maybe NOW someone will recognise who his father was because boonnaring's other posting said "looking for Pre harpes who migrated to WA" ??????? - no one could know who that would be ?, totally useless query

I have some relatives in Toodyay and will ask them if they have heard of this family. Toodyay has a museum and they have proudly preserved the history of theirtown in local history books etc so there could be a wealth of information there

Sorry NG I didn't see you already included what I just posted. Thorough arn't you!
You've pretty much covered it all apart from mum and dad of
Charles Harper 1799-1872. I know his mother wasn't Mary Dines b:1751 who married A William Harper.
Great journal.. ngairedith thanks from an interested reader
By the way Lionel Lukin owned the 'Eleanor' they arrived on.
