Trying to find where David and Jane (nee Younger) Reid moved to after 1861.
David and Jane were born in Alloa, Clackmannanshire about 1822. They married and came to Australia on "The Wanderer" with their child Isabella Campbell Reid (my ggrandmother). They come with Jane's brothers Alexander, Andrew and John (who drowned on the way) and their sister Margaret landing in Victoria in 1853.
Jane and David had 3 children around Melbourne/Brunswick, two of whom die there.
The families eventually settle in Ballarat where David and Jane's youngest son John is born in 1861. According to oral family history around this time David and Jane leave Isabella with Jane's youngest brother, Alexander Younger in Ballarat to complete her education and took babies Margaret and John and head outback to be drovers. Unfortunately they were never heard from again.
Wondering if anybody has these people in their family as we desperately would love to know whatever happened to them. Isabella went to her grave never knowing what became of her parents. We all wonder if they ended up in New Zealand, America or even Canada thinking they would send for Isabella when they settled, but just never did.
