Source: Whaling in Southern Waters by Frank Tod

Details: Charles was beaten up by Edwin Palmer at the Preservation Inlet whaling station and died on the 4th of July 1837 possibly as a result of internal disease.

At the trial, James Davidson deposed, I knew Charles Denham or Denahan, a lad about eighteen years of age, he was six weeks or two months there and he told me he was a native of the St Kitts in the West Indies.

" COGAN " ANCESTRY - PENNSYLVANIA - AMERICA -1719 -- 1788

This Journal is to assist One of our members ( Nagoc1977 )5/5/2011 who asked the Query :" Looking for info on John Cogan before 1796 " I would bring TO the enquiring member's attention , that their appears to be a huge mix up in the documented records in Pennsylvania . In fact I found marriages with wrong dates , names spelt wrong from what they should be for certain families . Marriage dates altered as well as one or two children. The records I put before you I cannot give it a clearance at all as proven . Who ever entered some of the documentation should be hung by the neck until dead , I will put before you what I found ,as close to being correct as i could find . If you have been trying to research some of the pennsylevania Records , no wonder you asked for assistance. Ok , here goes - not proven !!!

When I went deeper into the ancestry the following came up

Milo de Cogan -b- 1145 - Glamorgan -Wales -m- a Christine Painal

John de Cogan -d- 1275 - Wales

John de Cogan -d - 1302 -Wales

I say this with tongue in cheek - they may have come from France to Wales then onto America . WE are inclined to forget that Philadelphia was one of the big areas for new imigrants coming into America. Pennsylvania is close to that state . I could not get this ancestry to come together . Be careful , their is a lot of fish hooks in Pennysylvania

" Fly in the Pint " Humour

Fly in the pint

An Englishman, a Welshman, and a Scotsman were sitting in a pub one day, each enjoying a pint. All of a sudden, three flies appeared, each landing simultaneously in each of the pints.

The Englishman turned up his nose, pushed the pint away, then went off to order a fresh one.

The Welshman reached in, grabbed the fly, flicked it away, then continued drinking.

The Scotsman reached in, grabbed the fly, looked it straight in the face, and growled, "Spit it oot, ye bastard!"

" KELLY - ELLEN " MOTHER OF NED KELLY -AUSTRALIA 1832-- 1923

Kelly, Ellen (c. 1832 - 1923)

Alternative Names:
Quinn, Ellen
Birth:
c. 1832, County Antrim, Ireland
Death:
27 March 1923, Greta West, Victoria, Australia
Irish Catholic

Occupation:

Farmer
Prisoner
Sly-grog operator

KELLY, ELLEN (c.18321923), matriarch and mother of Ned Kelly, was born in County Antrim, Ireland, fourth of eleven children of James Quinn, farmer, and his wife Mary, ne McCluskey. Ellen had an adventurous spirit that rebelled against any confinement and led her often to play truant from school and roam the countrysidea practice that left her able to read but not to write, and with a lifelong affinity for horses and the land. The Quinns, then numbering ten, reached Port Phillip as assisted migrants in July 1841.

After a period of menial work in Melbourne, James took the family north to rented farmland at Brunswick, then in 1849 a further 30 miles (48.3 km) to Wallan. Lively and slim with black hair and grey eyes, and an expert horsewoman, Ellen caught the eye of 30-year-old John 'Red' Kelly, an Irishman who had been transported to Van Diemen's Land for theft in 1841. Defying her father, Ellen took up with Red, and fell pregnant to him in May 1850. They married on 18 November at St Francis's Catholic Church, Melbourne, and moved into their own cottage on the Quinns' Wallan property.

Their first-born, a girl, survived only briefly. In 1853 Red set off alone to the goldfields, where he made enough to buy a farm near Beveridge. Ellen had a daughter Anne and in December 1854 a son, who was named Edward after Red's brother. The extensive Quinn and Kelly clans tended to skirt the fringes of the law, and for Ellen and Red financial difficulties, several moves, further births and mounting police attention set a definitive pattern. Red began drinking heavily. In 1865 he stole a calf and served four months in gaol. The following year he died, an alcoholic, of oedema, leaving Ellen with seven children aged from 18 months to 13 years.

As she struggled to raise her children on inferior farmland, she became notorious for her sometimes-violent temper, resulting in several court appearances. After moving her family into the far north-east of Victoria to stay near relations, she leased a selection of 88 acres (35.6 ha) there and sold 'sly grog' to make ends meet. The bushranger Harry Power became a family friend, introducing 14-year-old Ned to the life of a bandit. In 1869 Ellen took a lover, Bill Frost, and became pregnant, he promising marriage. The babyher ninthwas born in March 1870, but Frost did not keep his word. Trouble with the law increased, with several of Ellen's siblings and offspring suffering periods of imprisonment.

Late in 1872, with Ned in prison, she met George King, a 23-year-old Californian horse-thief, and once more fell pregnant. On 19 February 1874 they married at Benalla with Primitive Methodist forms. She had three children by King. Alice, the last, was born in April 1878, six months after King abruptly deserted them, and only days before Constable Fitzpatrick arrived at the Kelly home to arrest Ellen's son Dan for horse-theft. Set upon by Ellen (wielding a spade) and probably Ned, Fitzpatrick brought charges of attempted murder; she was sentenced to three years in prison.

A model prisoner, Ellen was allowed, after Dan's death and Ned's capture, to visit Ned in the prison hospital and later in the cells, seeing him for the last time on the eve of his execution. According to tradition, she said 'Mind you die like a Kelly, son'. Released in February 1881, Ellen returned home to scenes of incipient civil rebellion; the authorities feared a pro-Kelly uprising. Constable Robert Graham, however, gained her confidence and persuaded her to calm her sympathizers. She settled down to become, for the first time in her life, a respectable community identityalthough she was never able to rise to even modest prosperity.

Her daughters Maggie and Kate died in the late 1890s, leaving Ellen to raise three of her grandchildren, helped by her son James. He continued to live with her, caring for her in her old age. She died on 27 March 1923 at Greta West and was buried in Greta cemetery with Catholic rites. Of her twelve children, a son and daughter of her first marriage and a son and two daughters of her second survived her.

" PADDY ( PATRICK ) CAHILL - AUSTRALIAN BUFFALO HUNTER -1863-- 1923

Cahill, Patrick (Paddy) (1863? - 1923)

Birth:
1863?, Laidley, Queensland, Australia
Death:
4 February 1923, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Occupation:
Buffalo hunter
Farmer
Indigenous artefacts collector
Overlander
Police officer
Protector of Aboriginals

CAHILL, PATRICK (1863?-1923), buffalo-shooter, farmer and protector of Aboriginals was born, probably in 1863, at Laidley near Toowoomba, Queensland, son of Thomas Cahill, blacksmith, and his wife Sarah, ne Scahill; his birth was not registered. Paddy and his brothers Tom and Matt joined Nat Buchanan and the Gordons in overlanding 20,000 cattle in 1883 for Wave Hill station, Northern Territory. The Cahill brothers later managed Wave Hill, Delamere and Gordon Downs stations.

Paddy was soon attracted by reports of up to 60,000 buffalo running wild on the plains of the Alligator River. One of the first to shoot from horseback, he and his partner William Johnston employed Aboriginals during the dry season in semi-mobile camps to produce hides and horns. Cahill's largest monthly kill was 1605; hides were initially worth 1 each. Much of his success was due to his fast, intelligent horse St Lawrence. In 1898 he wrote a series of articles on hunting for the Northern Territory Times.

Early in 1899 when hunting was becoming unprofitable Cahill bought the pearling lugger, Ethel. On 18 October at St Mary's Star of the Sea Catholic Church, Darwin, he married Maria Pickford. Within three weeks of the wedding he covered 200 miles (322 km) in three days to assist Johnston who had been gored. Cahill was probably the most popular man in the Northern Territory at this time. Visiting Darwin in 1898, A. B. Paterson light-heartedly listed the main conversational pieces of Darwin as 'the cycloon' (of 1897), G. R. (the government resident) and Paddy Cahill.

Cahill and Johnston settled in 1906 at idyllic Oenpelli in Arnhem Land. The local Kakadu people helped establish a farm, growing fruit, vegetables, sisal, cotton and other products. Naturally intelligent, Cahill had developed a deep interest in and empathy with Aboriginals, learning languages and being careful to use tribal names. He sought to minimize their contacts with Europeans, particularly missionaries, and in 1912 was appointed a protector and manager of a reserve based on Oenpelli. He was visited there by (Sir) W. Baldwin Spencer in 1912, Elsie Masson in 1915 and Carl Warburton, all of whom recorded their admiration for the house, gardens and dairy. Cahill maintained a long friendly correspondence with Spencer and, next to F. J. Gillen, was probably his most important collaborator. As a result, Cahill supplied the National Museum of Victoria with zoological specimens and a very important collection of bark-paintings.

In 1915 J. A. Gilruth, administrator of the Northern Territory, chose Oenpelli as a government experimental dairy and provided some cows, but the first shipment of butter was boycotted by Darwin unionists because it was produced by black labour. In 1917 one of Cahill's trusted Aboriginal workers attempted to poison him and his family. During the Darwin disturbances of 1918-19 he served as a special constable defending Government House, antagonized the dissidents, and was described in royal commissioner N. K. Ewing's report as a decent man but sometimes careless. It was implied that he had used his friendship with Gilruth to advance his son.

Paddy Cahill was 'a stocky, broad-shouldered extrovert, with ruddy complexion and ever cheerful manner'. He visited Melbourne for the Cup of 1922 with his wife and son. An earlier influenza attack recurred and he died at the Sydney home of his brother Tom on 4 February 1923 and was buried in Randwick cemetery. Mount Cahill, Cahill's Landing and Cahill's Crossing in Arnhem Land and a Darwin street are named after him.

" RHODEN " ANCESTRY FROM GERMANY

HELLO This journal is about the " Rhoden " family ancestory . This is to assist an enquiry made on the 17/4/11 by Cigf48 The name could have changed at times to Rhodin / Rodin . I cannot prove they are the one and same in my research. I have put it into ( 3 ) parts - the following is my reasons for doing that
(a ) The first part is from the 1880 united states census. Who ever is searching for the " Rhoden " ancestry has now got an up to date starting point in America'
( 2 ) the second part goes back to 1495 and is where the German records appear to stop . You can research forward from this point. The ancestry in general of this family in general appears to have been in the Netherlands / England / Ireland before getting to the america -. I did not research this portion .. I did glance at it and it appears to have a thread to follow .
( 3 ) this section was entirely devoted to the name and its connection with Royalty as they were the only ones who had proven records of the " Rhoden " ancestry back to 1332 AD
Any one researching the " Rhoden " ancestry , should now be able to find their way from approximately from around 1910 back to 1332 with a break of the ordinary people at 1495 -. I am unable to prove the connection at this point in time of any connection with the royals.
I feel sure their will be one

I hope this journal may asasist someone

" RICHARD & JOHANNA MATHEWS " OF HOKIANGA NZ

Richard Matthews
arrived; 1835
country of origin; England
areas in New Zealand; Kaitaia, Wanganui, Awanui
sources; The Community Archive Te Ao Hou

Richard Matthews was the brother of Rev Joseph Matthews of Kaitaia. He served on the 2nd voyage of Darwin's Beagle as a lay missionary. He left the ship when it called at New Zealand, and joined his brother Joseph Matthews in Kaitaia. He married Johanna Blomfield, sister of Mrs Martha Blomfield Clarke, in 1838 at Waimate North. He served the Church Missionary Society in Kaitaia, then was asked to help set up a missionary station at Wanganui.
On 20 June 1840, the Revd John Mason, Mrs Mason and a lay catechist,
Hello - They liked the north and stayed

Mr Richard Matthews arrived in Wanganui to establish the Mission.
Richard and Johanna Matthews later lived at Awanui, Northland. They had 2 daughters, Serena Hannah born about 1840, and Bertha born 1846 in Wanganui

Wanganui Herald 26th May 1906
The first white child born in Wanganui. Sir- In last evenings paper I saw a paragraph stating that Mr Anthony Nathan was the first white child born in Wanganui. This is a mistake. He was the first child born to the New Zealand Companys settlers who came here in 1840 or 1841; but a lay Evangelist of the Church Missionary Society, named Matthews came here with his wife in 1836 or 1837, and started a mission station just where the Moutoa monument now stands, and they had two or three children born to them before the settlers arrived, the oldest of such children was a girl. When the Matthews family left here in 1843 or 1844, they journeyed to Hokianga in a whaleboat, travelling by day, and camping on the beach at night. I had occasion many years ago to enquire into this subject, and my principal informant was Mr A Nathans mother, who had known the family well, and who spoke very highly of the courage of Mrs Matthews in coming to a place where she could have none but Maori assistance in her confinements. I am, etc., H C Field. Aramoho May 25th 1906
