Looking for family of John LANGLEY.

John LANGLEY arrived in Sth. Australia on the PUNJAB in 1855, with his wife and three of his children.
I am trying to find when and where John died. Ann his wife died 1881, and she was a widow (from BDM discs). She died at Caltowie, Sth. Australia.

I have not been able also to find out her Maiden name. (Priestley, is a possability.) The Langley family were born around Huntingdonshire, England.

Cheers, Berrima.

Looking for information on Thomas BOWYER

Thomas BOWYER arrived in Sth. Australia on the Norman, with his wife and family, in 1855.
Wanting to know more about his whereabouts before he shifted to Yankalilla, Sth. Australia.

I have some information on the family and decendants from Yankalilla, and am willing to share what I have.
Happy hunting to all.
