So who was John Wright Biddle that died in South Africa?


John Wright BIDDLE who died in South Africa was the third son of Zachariah Wright BIDDLE who died in NZ in 1892.  http://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/cgi-bin/paperspast?a=d&cl=search&d=TS19000815.2.21&srpos=1&e=-------10--1----0zachariah+biddle-all

Zachariah emmigrated from Devon with his family after 1871 (1873 according to letters at http://naa12.naa.gov.au/scripts/imagine.asp?B=678349&I=1&SE=1

It appears that John Wright BIDDLE was the one who married Amy HILL in 1892 in Sydney.

I agree with you Dundee ;)

It looks like the father who married Amy Hill was John Wright Biddle and his only son was also John Wright Biddle.
