Hello there rawrlw,
James Carr was married, firstly, to Celia Williams. She died at 34 years of age. Celia was my husband's GG-Aunt. I am not sure if you have discovered any more on the Carrs, but there is an informative posting on the internet by Rob O'Brien, a direct descendant of James brother, Thomas. James parents, James Stanley(1800-1866) and Ann(nee Brown)(1819-1861), were convicts, transported to Sydney. After gaining their freedom they made in epic overland trek through the mountains to Gippsland.Google James Carr, Maffra(1800-1866) to view this. They were a tough family that endured great hardships developing their. pioneer properties. I believe Maffra Historical Society has some information.Many of the family are buried in the cemetery at Sale, including Raymond. The Sale Cemetery website has family details. James (2nd) died in Stratford. I believe he was at some point, a director of the Maffra Butter Factory. Ann(nee Brown) died at a young age, from gangrene, after refusing to get an infected leg amputated. (Possibly no anaesthetic available back then) James(Snr) drowned in a waterhole in a creek in the Maffra area.They are buried in the same plot in Sale. I have been in contact with Rob, who lives in New Zealand , and have many of the family on my tree. Your husband should be proud to have links with this early Gippsland pioneer family. I am happy to assist you with your research if you contact me,
Kind regards,
