Ken, Moonta was an historic town with a copper mining background, and settled by peoples from Cornwall. Perhaps you might like to check out this website... and contact them for information on your CORNELIUS family South Australian Genealogy and Heraldry Society Inc.

I couldn't find anything at this website ... Archives of NZ

Lots of Aussie links at this page...An Australian Gateway site for tracing your family history

Regards, Alison.

Hi Alison
I think it will be a pure fluke if we get any more. We were in SA in Feb and went to Moonta town and museum as well as the Genealogy society office in Adelaide. Everone was very helpful but no photo.

Have a bit of news, picked up whilst searching for another family member.
Johan Erik Kunelius born in Finland in 1857. At that time Finland was part of Russia. Johan trained to be an engineer and soon left home on a Russian ship and discharged at London about 1880. He spent a couple of years in South Africa working on the Victoria Falls and bridge. Sailed to Australia and the goldfields. He married in Sofala and took residence in Hill End where he worked as a miner. He changed his name by deed poll to John Eric CONELIUS.
