Tiko , from New Zealand, has been a Family Tree Circles member since Dec 2012.
what is it you would like to know?
David Earl Lindsay came in to Wellington in 1856 and married Elizabeth Brown 29/9/1856
What I would like to know is what boat did they come in on and their other family members from where they came from. David said his parents were David Earl and Agnes from Ayr Scotland and Elizabeth father was Steven loosing his wife and child on the voyage to NSW. She came from New castle on tyne. Any more news would be great
We would like to know where John William Ferguson family are. John Matheson had a child to jessie Ferguson but never married and it was bought up under her name of Ferguson This happened when he went to the Boer war Do you know if any of his down line are living as we have belongings of his and would like to return them. his father was Kenneth
He had a son, also called David Earl Lindsay 1860-1907; He worked for the Post Office as agent on the ships running the mail between Auckland and San Francisco.
Am I on the right track?
Yes you are. he was there when the earth quake hit. Do you know what boat he came in on please?
Thank you for that it was some thing we have not seen so that is great . David Earl Lindsay born 1824 died 1892 is the one we don't know much about . Thank very much
Do you know if he had family in Scotland ?
Have been going over a few things and see that in a piece you gave me that D E lindsay came out from USA with a chap William Miller who he was in partnership with. So if we can find that ship it would be good.
Stephen Earl Lindsay was in the First WW can records be found
It now seems that David Earl Lindsay was in fact David Earl and he changed his name to Lindsay either on the boat or in USA how do I prove this?
I cannot find our last letters .
I think David Earl Lindsay is not what we first thought . There was another researcher who gave help but it does not come up now she thinks he was born in Glasgow and not Ayrshire and on a different date so back to square one
Have looked through all the journals but nothing came up.
So following a different path now
