John ANDERSON
« on: Monday 20 July 09 15:34 BST (UK) »
Does anyone have any information on John Anderson born approx 1856 possibly Scotland or Ireland parents maybe John Anderson and Katherine Oliver? John drowned 1943 at the Berembed Weir Naranderra NSW. We have never been able to find his marriage to Elizabeth Ann Norris/Peelman/Austerberry.

Hi Maggie
According to the NSW BDM's, the only John Anderson who died in Nerrandera in 1943 has parents listed as Andrew & Agnes.
Did a search on Scottish census' & found a possible matching family in Shetland (only one I could find with a John born abt 1856 & parents Andrew & Agnes):
1861 census:
Andrew Anderson, Head, born abt 1807 Occupation farmer.
Agnes, Wife, born abt 1809
Grace, daughter, born abt 1842
Catherine, daughter, born abt 1845
Andrew (jnr), son, born abt 1848
Gideon, son, born abt 1852
John, son, born abt 1856
All members of this family were born in Northmavine, Shetland, Scotland
Found them again in the 1871 census, John was still with his parents.
In the 1881 census, the only matching John I could find was listed as a lamp trimmer on the ship "Manitoban"
Does this tie in with any other info you have?

We don't know when he came out to Australia. He had wife but we never been able to find the marriage cert Elizabeth Anne Norris/Peelman/Austerberry and three children, Christian Rueben born 1903 Melbourne Victoria, Grace Maud 1907 Wagga Wagga NSW and Thomas Henry Anderson born 1914 Wagga Wagga NSW
From linked thread - gemini

Can't see the birth of a Christian Reuben ANDERSON in Victoria but there is this registration - born to John's wife's 1st marriage.

NORRIS Christian Reuben
Father Christian  Mother Annie PEELMAN
South Melbourne   1903  Reg#4768

The 1907 birth registration of Grace in NSW has Annie as mother.

8490/1907     
ANDERSON  Grace M
Father John  Mother Annie
Wagga Wagga

So we are looking for a marriage between 1903 and 1907.  I can't see a death for Christian NORRIS in that period.

According to the NSW BDM's, the only John Anderson who died in Nerrandera in 1943 has parents listed as Andrew & Agnes. Annie Oz

I have located the burial of a second JOHN ANDERSON at Nerranderra. Same year.

John ANDERSON Died 7th October, 1943.
Buried at Nerranderra Cemetery.
Pres. C. Row 06. Lot 59
Aged 79.
Unmarked Grave

I am wondering if there is some confusion with this man and the other whose burial I can also see at the same cemetery,[Different Location] having died on 7th February 1943.
