janilye - 7th generation, Convict stock. Born in New South Wales now living in Victoria, carrying, with pride 'The Birthstain'.
There is a possibility that Alex Watson did some fishing at Flinders. I'm not aware of the name of the pioneer after whom Keys Rd near Flinders was named but he may have been the son-in-law of Alex.
Some of the other in-law surnames are of interest, especially Lovie, the maiden name of the Watson Bros.' grandmother. John Lovie was the grantee of (636?) acres south of Rosebud West, between Eastbourne, Edward Williams' Browns Rd grant and the Boneo Rd grants. I have a feeling McFarlane should be McFarlan,as in John Duncan McFarlan, the Brunswick/Sorrento pioneer and Shire Councillor.
