Eliza McCloud was John Fletcher's second wife. His first wife was Sarah Boyd (1809-1852). They emigrated from Liverpool in 1852 on board the "Thomas J.Foord" with their children Thomas, Jacob, Sarah Ann (Yates) and Isabella (Bandy). Sarah died from bronchitis on 5 November 1852, three weeks before the ship arrived at Port Henry in Geelong. Sarah was my great great grand-mother and was buried at sea. Accounts I have read from other passengers on that journey relate a particularly hellish sea-voyage.

Both John Fletcher and Sarah Boyd were from Cumbria - St Bees, Whitehaven, Cockermouth.

John and Eliza would have five children, the first four died within a month of each other from diptheria whilst the family were living in the general goldfields district in Victoria. Their only surviving child, Emma Alice McCloud Fletcher (b. 1869) married George Alexander Pope of the Rich Avon Estate (near Donald in Victoria) and they have squillions of descendants.

Emma and George had five children and Emma died on 11 May 1942.

Eliza was a much younger woman than John and was only in her mid-40s when John died in 1874 and I believe she did remarry. John had taken up a selection at Mt Jeffcott in Victoria about 1872, and he and Eliza were among the early settlers and pioneers in the Wimmera district.

If you visit Donald Cemetary you will find the graves of John & Eliza (its the biggest monument in the middle of the cemetary) and nearby are the graves of Emma and her family.
