Montgomeryshire / Re: JOHN EDWARDS, Colonel in the English Army
« on: Saturday 29 October 05 08:19 BST (UK)  »
Hi Chris,

I obviously missed clicking a button or something, blame it on being a "newbee" to Rootschat.  It is the first time I have posted a query. I have much to learn in this computer research age although I have been researching family history for over 25 years now.

This is what I wanted to ask ....... Where do I begin to find information on JOHN EDWARDS who was a Colonel in the English Army.  His daughter Mary Humphreys (nee Edwards) stated that he was deceased and a Colonel in the English Army when she arrived in Australia in 1851.  She had been born approx. 1793 in Carno, Montgomeryshire, Wales.  Her mother was Mary Rowland.  I don't know if Mary had any other siblings.
Any help would be much appreciated,

Hi Alison4164,
I may have found the death of Edward Thomas Samuel for you, Ref #62189/1971 registered in Wollongong, NSW.  Father Thomas, Mother, Trifener Jane.

Mary Jessie Samuel, Ref #33978/1966 registered in Wollongong, NSW.  Father, William, Mother, Mary.

You can check for yourself on  and go to Historic Index Search.

No sign of William and Thyer up to 1974, maybe they moved interstate.

Have checked the Rookwood Cemetery CD, unfortunately I can find no entry for Ivy Lillian Fantom who died in 1949.  This just means there was no headstone to be transcribed.  She could still be buried there without a headstone or she could have been cremated.  Maybe a letter to the cemetery might bring you some results.
