looking for james and catherine watson nee edwards ballarat victoria updated
I am looking for anything on James Thomas Watsom born about 1848.He married Catherine Edwards and they had 14 children.
Catherine 15.5.1884 married Patrick Morris they were farmers in the Ballarat area
Louisa 18.2.1886 married Fred James
Richard 3.7.1882 born Clunes Victoria
Albert 29.9.1897 born Clunes Victoria
Ivy Rosetta 2.6.1901-13.5.1932 married Samuel Herbert Harper
Ivy and Samuel had three daughters
Mary Catherine 4.2.1922-16.4.1988
Ivy May Maureen
Margaret Terisa Clare
Francis Joseph Sheen they had 7 children of which i am the youngest
I think that James Watson snr was buried in Ballarat and it would have been sometime after 1922 as my mother used to talk about it.
Both he and his wife Catherine from a Maori background and I have a photo of Catherine with a tattoed face.If any one has any thing on this family which could be of help or if they are some of your ancestors please let me know as this is as far as I can get back on this side of my family.
