Minnie CUMING(s)
« on: Monday 28 August 17 14:33 BST (UK) »
I am researching the above (1870-1953) who was the daughter of Ebenezer CUMING(s) (1839-1914) and Caroline HARSLETT (1829-1912) Their other children were Mary (May) b 1863, John Richard (1866-1887), William George (1869-1914) and Harriet Mary (1873-1946)
According to a resume on William's grave record site, cemetery Carr Villa Memorial site Tasmania the family arrived in Victoria in March 1887 on the Oroya. However the 1871 and 1881 England and Wales census shows that Mary (May) and John Richard were born in Brisbane.
Minnie has a baptism record for 1872 which gives her birth as 1860 and her parents as Edward Cuming and Jane. I am trying to establish whether I have two people or its the same one and she may have been left behind when the finally emigrated in 1887.

Thanks for your responses. These are obviously different people. You have confirmed to me that I have spent the whole weekend going down the wrong branch of the family. The Minnie I am after remained in this country so this family were a red herring. Thanks for your help.
