Itellya is researching local history on the Mornington Peninsula and is willing to help family historians with information about the area between Somerville and Blairgowrie. He has extensive information about Henry Gomm of Somerville, Joseph Porta (Victoria's first bellows manufacturer) and Captain Adams of Rosebud.

Information about Stanley Paul Peters, one of those listed on the Rosebud State School Roll of Honour (as S.Peters), will be entered in the journal tomorrow morning.My thanks to Mal Boag for providing information from the school register which proved that the black fiddler was his father.

Here's a bit, from Abbeyg in her conversation with Janilye, about Stanley.

Hi, Thanks for getting back to me again.

Yes Mary Ann did remarry after Joesph Peters died to Thomas Lewthwaite.
She died 24/4/1925 as Mary Ann Lewthwaite and she is bruied with her son Albert in Faulkner Cemetary.

Mary Ann and Joseph had 15 children 3 died 2 sons both named Joseph and 1 daughter named Mary. We have names and birth/ death details for all 15 children. Stanley was Mary Anns and Josephs son and we also were aware of his service details.
There are Peter's everwhere and many of Joseph's children had very large families themselves and they all seemed to spread out over the state.

We aren't to concerned about tracing the children of Joseph and Mary Ann we are more interested in finding out the truth about where Joseph and Mary came from that s why I would love to see a photo of them.

Its interesting that Stanley played football for Dromana. I'll brag to my husband that stanley was a champion football player of old but decided to serve his country rather then follow his football career. I've had to hear of my husbands great grandfathers football heroics for over twenty years. James Henry Gardiner founder of the North Melbourne Football club. We have bought every book and visited or rang every football club, council officers, streets, parks collecting photos of the man. All very English and proper unlike what my family tree is developing into.

Appreciate anything that you find on Joseph or Mary Ann. We believe Mary Anns birth details were fudged to suit the times. In fact I am exhausted looking in to Mary Ann thats why I started looking into Joseph more closely. At this stage I don't care if Mary Ann came from under a cabbage patch!
