Looking for information on a person named Captain George Dryden, he lived in the Tasmanion, Launceston area.
Had a daughter Louisa Martha Dryden (became McCarron & then White) who died in Devonport, TAS., in 1942, however there does not seem to be a record of her burial location. Logically it should be in Devonport, however the local historical society have informed me that her name does not appear.
Her husband Henry Vautin White, was buried in Flowerdale, TAS., and maybe she is buried with him, however he died in 1916. And I have no access to a burial register.
Any assistance would be appreciated, thank you Bob

I am trying to find info on his parents, which are James & Thirza Nichols, but i do not know if they came to Australia or not. ........ Any assistance would be appreciated. ........ Regards, Bob
Looking for any information on George Davenport who reportedly died in 1897 in Bendigo Hospital.
His burial location does not seem to be avaiable through the Bendigo Database search.
He married in 1847 to Ann Andrews, in Hobart, Tasmania.
I currently have no date of birth, but I will assume it will be in Tasmania.
I do not have any parents for either of them.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, Regards, Bob
Currently looking for the background of an Eliza Elizabeth COLEMAN, who married a Charles Henry BELBIN, who was born in Tasmania (I think).
Eliza was not born a COLEMAN, she had been married before, I believe to a Joseph COLEMAN, however that is what I am attempting to work on, I have very weak information pointing to her being a SHAW, but that is far from being proved.
I am hoping that someone on this board may be able to point me in the right direction, or even let me know what is correct.
Any assistance is helpful, Regards, Bob
PS... ALL THIS OCCURED IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA...Sorry :)
This lady is a bit evasive, she:
Reported to marry one John Alexander Stuart about 1884.
Had several children at a place called Mount Korong, in Victoria, Australia
John died 1924 in Inglewood, Victoria, Australia
Have followed the children.
However the wife's death continues to elude me.
I have no Parents for her either.
Any assistance would be gratefully recieved.
I am trying to find out the outcome of an relationship which began in court and finished....???
Details are as follows:
Mary Ann Brown, b. 1854, Winchelsea, Victoria, Australia (Reg No.6941)
d. 1930, ??????????, Victoria, Australia**
(Buried as Mary Ann Brown, Age 76, Geelong East Cemetery. Service date unknown.)
MARRIED: 1870, Winchelsea, Victoria, Australia, (Reg No.1005)
Thomas Samuel King, b. C1840, Tipperary, Ireland.

Both deaths are not clear, others have stated that they both died in Hamilton, Victoria, Australia but I have not come to that conclusion and that in fact the person they refer to is another Samuel Thomas King. I have not been able to find any Thomas Samuel King's dying and would appreciate any assistance anyone can give.
Thank you, Bob

Trying to find a death notice for a Sarah Cameron Goodwin / Boddington,
I "think" she was "married" (been unable to verify this through the Victorian BDM,) in the year
1914, details I have are as follows:
Name: Sarah Cameron Boddington
Born: 1887, Melbourne Victoria, Australia
Partnered/Married: Leslie Frederick Burliegh Goodwin
Born: 1867, St Andrews, Victoria, Australia
Death: Aug 1949, Panton Hill, Victoria, Australia
Buried: Fawkner Cemetery, Victoria, Australia
Dorthy Goodwin Boddington, Leslie Cameron Goodwin, James Burleigh Goodwin.
As you can see, I have done extensive research on this family, and would appreciate any assistance
to track down this elusive death date. I know she was alive in 1914, (some researchers are stating
a death date in the same year, maybe at the birth?? I have been unable to find any burial date.
I am looking for details of parents for Richard Marr Scott, seem he married Lucy Heeps in South Australia. He died 1898 in Strathalbyn, South Australia, his wife died in South Australia.
My wifes Grandmother, Ivy Pickett was the daughter of Thomas Pickett and Louisa Mary Lehmann. Louisa Mary Lehmann was the daughter of Wilhelm Lehmann and Mary Lousia Scott (Marie Louise Scott) and Mary Louisa Scott was the daughter of Richard Marr Scott and Lucy Heeps.
Richard Scott is believed to be the son of Winfield Scott. In Richards death notice it says he was son of the late Gen Winfield Scott of the USA.. American papers please copy. I would love contact with anyone in regards to our family connections.
I have yet to find any person who can make the "connection" to Gen winfield Scott, but I'm encouraged by the many people who have stated that they will keep an eye on the issue, thank you everyone I am sure that this will be sorted out before very long.
I am looking for an Evans from Taunton,Somerset,England who migrated to Australia, (possibly Western Australia) with parents, (I think John & Ann nee Salter,) and who settled in Victoria.
They immigrated around 1920, and I am told by there son (now deceased) that they arrived in Western Australia.
The son's name is Cyril, and apparently he had sisters and maybe another brother.
Cyril was born in 1911, however his War Record states that was born 1913, in Taunton, England.
He did not keep contact with his family, and I have failed to find his family in WA.
Any help would be appreciated. Bob
