Hi  I don't know that I can provide any new information.  I was hoping to be able to learn more myself.  What I do know is that Albert & Elizabeth Mancktelow were my GG Grandparents.  One of their children my G Grandmother Ruthes Manktelow b 1888 married John Taylor 1903.  My Grandmother Blanche Taylor was their first born in 1906.  Blanche then had a child in 1930, Esme and another in 1932, Coral.  My Mother was Coral and she was adopted out.  To my knowledge she had no knowledge of her birth family, however it appears that Esme was either not adopted out or reconnected with her Mother at an early age as Esme's marriage makes reference to their relationship.  My mother's original birth certificate had father unknown and as Blanche's surname was still Taylor one can only assume she was unmarried for both births.  She did however marry in 1934 to Arthur Harris, I am not aware of any further children.  My Mother passed away in 1979 when I was 10 so any further information would be greatly appreciated.

Hi

I have traced Daniel Hogan and his family back to Ireland and have s death at Dunwich. Elizabeth who was with Daniel was an aboriginal woman born in Wellington NSW. She married Patrick Augustus Higgins and had two children, Patrick John Higgins and Elizabeth Mary Higgins. Patrick and Daniel were both convicts.  Patrick Augustus Higgins died when Elizabeth Mary was a few months old. I have all the birth, death, marriage certificates as well as all the convict records.   It is all quite an interesting story. I am willing to share what I have but not sure how as it is quite large.   I even have photos and proof of everything.  Any ideas how to give it to you?

Hi Millie2009, this is my first time on Rootschat so I hope I can get it right!  I do have some information for you regarding Albert & Elizabeth (nee Hogan) Mancktelow, who are buried together in the Toowoomba Drayton Cemetery in Toowoomba Qld.  They are my Great Grandparents, their daughter RUTH & John Taylor are my grandparents, they are buried together in the Woombye Cemetery in Woombye Qld. Their daughter SARAH ANN JANE & George Henry Cranswick Parker are my parents. Your Grandmother Blanche was my mother Sarah's oldest sister. Blanche lived in our local area & we saw her & Uncle Arthur often, they never had children.  She died in June 1970 & is buried in the Caloundra Cemetery.  Esme married Steve Chaplin and lived in Caloundra & Beerwah Qld. She died in 2003 & is also buried in the Caloundra Cemetery. We knew Aunty Blanche had another daughter named Coral but we never met her.  Maybe if you send me your email I can give you more information.  Hope this helps you & happy to be in touch with you, Joy

One of the problems in dealing with Australian Aboriginal marriages was that Aboriginal people were not considered to be people at all in the early days, and it's only recently that they have been included in censuses at all. I know how it feels to hit a brick wall but how must they feel?

Hi Jason,  Albert & Elizabeth are my Great Grandparents and unfortunately I don't have any photos of them either, most disappointing.
