WARNER/WERNER/VERNER from Germany

I have an August Warner b. 6 January 1848 in Germany. Not sure how he got to America but he died on 4 Jan. 1926 in Center Grove, Story, Iowa. He gave the following information regarding his parents and siblings to his son Howard Emil:

1. Father = Nicolas Werner/Verner
2. Wilhelmina Doescher
3. William - brother
4. Minnie = sister
5. Mellie = sister

Supposedly, his father was from Hanover and his mother was from Hamburg.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

GRAVOLIN - Quebec to New Zealand to Australia

I'm looking for more information on Leonard Gravolin and Sophia Mobbs family. I only have one child listed for them, William Joseph (or Joseph William) b. 1875 in , Victoria, Australia. Leonard died Feb. 1939 in Geelong, Victoria, Australia. Sophia (Mobbs) was born in 1854 in Geelong, Victoria, Australia and died in 1923 in Geelong, Victoria, Australia.

Would like to have more information on this family and possibly back farther on Leonard's parents, etc...

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Looking for Edward Beaumont of , Victoria, Australia

I am researching the Beaumont family I found in Australia. They have a daughter Elizabeth BEAUMONT who married John MOBBS in 1849 at the St.Peter's Parish, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Most of their 4 children were born in Geelong, Victoria, Australia. I have record that she died in 1888 in Essendon, Victoria, Australia. Someone in the past emailed me a message and gave me Elizabeth's death information and in there stated that her parents were Edward Beaumont and Elizabeth Armes (Reg. # 5552)

I'm not sure if Elizabeth was born in Australia or England. Any help would be appreciated. I have been able to trace her husband John Mobbs back to England.
