In the Biographical Index of Sth Australia, Adam Reid is listed as a shoemaker but no indication of where he has come from.
On the marriage certificate in 1885 of his son Michael he is listed as a shoemaker.
He died in 1898 at Pt Augusta west, about 22yrs after his wife Mary.   She is buried at Georgetown but he isn't.
I suspect he is in the Old Pt Augusta Cemetery of which there are no records and only a few remaining headstones.   I believe you can't enter the cemetery anymore.
There are no father's names on the marriage record of Adam and Mary to research back to his origins.   There must be some connection to the name LOVELL through the REID or KENNELLY side as it pops up as a middle name with John & Helena BLIGHT nee Reid's children and also in my line with Thomas and Catherine SMITH nee Reid's children.

Arthur DAVIS was born c1850, his father was Thomas.   When Arthur married Elizabeth Jane BLIGHT in 1897 he was 47 and he married in his mothers home at Wilmington.   I presume then that his father had died by then.   I haven't really researched further for this side so will have a look sometime today to see if I can find anything further.   

If you post 1 more message you can contact me or Susy privately.

Regards,
Sashar

Hi Susy, Sorry to hear about your Aunt at Bunderberg. The elderly are a wonderful source of information, we all have so much to learn about our ancestors. I have been able to trace the Davis family back to Thomas and Matilda who sailed to Australia 31st Jan 1849 from Plymouth on the "Stebonheath".
I have hit a stone wall with the Blight family. Only able to go back to Adam Reid m Mary Kennelly 2nd Sept 1854. Children Helena Eleanor 1855, Mary Jane 1858, Michael 1863, Catherine 1867, Adam Tennant 1867, Annie 1872, Sarah Ann 1875.

Hi,
You are correct, my Aunt give me a lot of information.

I do not know anything about the Blights except what i wrote.
Mother was not a Blight, her sister Florence was and i know there was a brother also his name was Grant.
Think there are a lot of relatives scattered around Wirrabara, Booleroo etc

Hi all, i'm on a mission (are not we all?) to further my understanding of my ancestors in South Australia, in particular a Henry Yeing, born 1844 in South Australia, died 1918. There was a user last active on here in June 2011, HENG, she is a Yeing, i think she may have some helpfully knowledge into my families history. Is there any way to contact Susy AKA "HENG". Henry (Harry) Yeing is my GGG Grandfather (on my grandmothers side, i think thats right...)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Nate
