Found part lineage of Marion Elizabeth Hyem, born Elizabeth Miriam in 1881 at Sofala NSW

Margaret Moore immigrated to Australia in 1855, her father was CHARLES MOORE & her mother MARGARET. It seems that Margaret had a sister called Rose Ellen and that was why Margaret came out to Australia.
Margaret married William Farrington in Sofala in 1860. They had 10 children, the first 5 died from childhood illness in 1876. William was a gold miner and died from (gallstones). Margaret eventually moved to Sydney and she died in 1927.

Hyem Family

Big thank you to Alison Lyons for pointing in the right direction. Thanks to her I am now in touch with long lost cousins, that haven't seen since childhood. We keep in touch regularly. Wonderful feeling this having extended family.

I'm, trying to write the different stories down.

Still would like to hear from the CONELIUS (Dorothy May HYEM their mother)

I had a gentleman contact me about Raymond Charles Hyem Arundell - - was the name. If still on Family tree circles could he re-connect. A postcard sent by my uncle Ray from Stalag 18, in November 1942.

Uncle Ray only told his son and daughter: just 2 wqeeks before he died: that he'd had a daughter to a woman in Poland whilst he was in the army serving overseas. They said they would love to find the said daughter. So if anyone knows of this could they please contact me direct on: [email protected]

Margaret Moore, daughter of ,Charles Moore a Church of England missionary & Margaret McCloskey

Great-grandnan Margaret Moore, who's death certificate says born in Belfast, Ireland. No amount of searching has found where she was born - maybe because McCloskey was spelt a different way. She travelled to Australia on KATE in 1855 and married William Farrington in 1860 at Sofala, NSW.
Does anyone have knowledge of above people. Were there siblings?

Would appreciate any help in this search.
