It sounds like a horrific voyage.!

The article mentions John's death
"Oct 2nd another poor man died of cholera leaving a wife and 2 children : well in the evening, ate a hearty supper, and died in the morning"

You should be able to reply by personal message now that you have made two posts. :)

Previously, as a brand new user with one post, you would have been able to receive and open exactly one pm which hopefully contained an e-mail address.   Just copy and paste that e-mail address to reply by e-mail.

Anyway having now made 2 posts you can use the pm system fully.   :)

Hi Lynda,
   Welcome to rootschat. :)

   I guess you have seen son Walter’s WW1 service record.

   He enlists in Melbourne in 1915 ( modified to 1913) and gives his NOK as father  Joseph J DOVEN with the address in Credon Road.

   Interesting  that the army is still looking for Walter’s address in 1923 to send his medals.

Here is  an ongoing project which focuses on the Irish Famine girls from Ireland and Great Britain who were sent to Victoria and develops their stories.

By the way there is another Agnes Caroline HALL in NSW in 1920's.   This one is presumably unmarried so not your lady.

A man called John Richard HALL dies in 1921 leaving a large estate and leaves a portion of it to his 2 sisters - Agnes Ada HALL and Agnes Caroline HALL (did he really have 2 sisters called Agnes?).  Obit for this man  (he was son of Richard HALL).

From NSW BDM death 1921
HALL John R, , father Richard, mother Ann, at Sydney

So this Agnes Caroline HALL, if  his sister, would have parents Richard and Ann.

Just adding this as it may fit into your family somewhere and helps us to exclude the death of this other Agnes Caroline HALL

(perhaps it should say sister-in-law Agnes Caroline HALL  ??? and perhaps this explains why they came to Sydney  ??? )
adding : No most unlikely as the husband of your Agnes was called John too and John Richard HALL's obit has him born in NSW.

Hi Bev,
There is this death in NSW in 1927 - wrong father

HALL Agnes C, father John, mother Mary, at Manly reg 3120/1927

I have been looking for a death notice without any luck so far ...


adding : NSW BDM - free to search and can use wildcards etc

It seems that this is funeral notice for John TAYLOR, his brother in 1913.   It mentions Mr and Mrs Charles GRIERSON and also Mr and Mrs A GRIERSON and others.

Just in case you don't have it.


adding : John TAYLOR is said to be a brother-in-law to Mr and Mrs Samuel PARK, Mr and Mrs Jas PARK, Mr and Mrs Robert THOMSON and Mrs Thomas TAYLOR.   Are all these accounted for?

adding : Samuel and James PARK are brothers of John's wife Ann according to her funeral notice
