My great grandfater is Sidney Albert Cole Gallichan ( DOB 27/08/1899 died about 1975 in Sydney Australia )son of
Albert James Gallichan and Florence Matilda Cole. He immigrated to Australia when my grandmother was 18 years old (circa 1945).

My Grandmother was Yvonne Joan Harris (Nee Gallichan). She was born in Whangerai 19 Feb 1927 and died 26 Feb 2007. Her sisters are both still living in Sydney NSW. Sidney only had the three girls. Yvonne, Joy and Valerie.

These are the Gallichans my husband has found:

I am one of the granddaughters of Roylance Leo Cole Gallichan. I believe my grandfather had two older brothers Sidney Albert Cole Gallichan and Aubrey Cole Gallichan. He also had sisters Miracle Florence Cole Gallichan and Delcie May Elizabeth Gallichan. He also had other siblings born after 1907. I am still getting the
information together on this.
Aubrey Cole Gallichan died at the age of 3 and is buried at the Matamau Cemetery, Dannevirke. The unknown Gallichan buried September 1999 I believe was actually 1899. One reason why I believe this is that there were no further burials at this cemetery after 1958. As Sidney Albert Cole Gallichan was born 1899 it could have been his twin (Survived only a couple of weeks). Just a thought. I will ask my two surviving Aunties when I see them next as they might know the identity of the mystery relative buried at Matamau Cemetery.

I have a family photo of Albert James Gallichan (1876-1961) and his wife Florence Matilda Cole (1879-1951)taken some time in 1903 with four of their children. Sidney Albert Cole Gallichan aged 4 Miracle Florence Cole Gallichan aged 3 1902 Aubrey Cole Gallichan aged 2 and my grandfather Roylance Leo Cole Gallichan as a baby.

Miracle Florence Cole Gallichan was my grandmother. Would it be possible to have a copy of the family photo.

Kind regards

wow I had forgotten about this! I would love to know if I can have that photo with my great grandfather?

We are always wondering weather or not there was some Maori in the family?
