very nice Obituary there about Peter, Ros.   :D

I don't know if Ted wants info about descendants, but you never know what someone googling might come forward with that relates to Jane.

I have found Jane's daughter Christina died in Prahran in 1929 her married name was Dickenson.

I gave you that information previously in reply #7... she is buried at St Kilda Cemetery with some of her family:

I think I have "phonebook brain"

Selkcerf - thank you so much. I think I can now go back and tell Nepean Historical Society that we found her and some of her family.

The only other thing that is puzzling me is that if James and Jane had a son on 7 Feb 1849 in Scotland and James died here in Melbourne on 10 May 1850 how did they get here and why did they come?

I've looked at all the incoming passengers on PROV and I cant find them. However, the Unassisted records only start in 1852.

Red post: thank you so much everyone
