Found part lineage of Marion Elizabeth Hyem, born Elizabeth Miriam in 1881 at Sofala NSW

Journal by Lyn_Sumner

Margaret Moore immigrated to Australia in 1855, her father was CHARLES MOORE & her mother MARGARET. It seems that Margaret had a sister called Rose Ellen and that was why Margaret came out to Australia.
Margaret married William Farrington in Sofala in 1860. They had 10 children, the first 5 died from childhood illness in 1876. William was a gold miner and died from (gallstones). Margaret eventually moved to Sydney and she died in 1927.

hello Lyn
I can help re Farrington. William Farrington was born in Yorkshire in 1833 to Thomas Farrington (1810- ?1838) and Hanna Wilson Clarkson (?1812-1901) Hanna came to Australia with young William and her 2nd husband John Heath arriving Feb1842 on the "Nabob" as bounty immigrants. They owned a parcel of land in Georges Hall on the Georges RIver, then lived in Parramatta before settling in the gold fields.So your great great grandmothers grave can be viewed

The Heath family farm survives at Crudine, near Sofala.

How very wonderful Debra to receive this exciting information. I tried finding out by looking for Crudine but was unsuccessful. Wow gggran has a gggranddaughter who has carried on the midwife line, she was really thrilled to learn about that. Her brother Grant goes camping up near Sofala quite a lot and said to me (when we connected up) he wondered why he was drawn to the area so often. He was very emotional to learn the news. Now they will both be even more excited at this news.
Mum used to mention an Aunt Hanna, so the name must have carried on.
Surprising enough I used to live in Guildford, not all that far from Parramatta. Now I live in Gympie Qld and we have quite a few gold mines here. In fact I live on a hill which is undermined by the gold diggers and we have a Gold Museum not far away.
Would dearly love to hear from you, especially if you have photos. I have couple photos of Marion Elizabeth and her husband Pearl Walter Hyem.
