That is a bit odd...  The Edmund Johnston is the right one, thanks to parents names, Benjamin & Catherine Johnston.

Many thanks for those directory addresses.
Would there be any hope at all of finding Edmund's marriage ?

Hello everyone !
My great great uncle, Edmund Johnston, was born in Rathdrum, Co Wicklow, Ireland in 1818.  He died in January 1882 in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois and is seemingly buried in Forest https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N7HB-LXQe Cemetery.     
The document indicates that he was married - I haven't been able to find any details at all.

I did find an Edmund Johnston, aged 19, Agent, born Ireland, on his way to Canada with a stop in New York travelling on ss George Washington on 28th August 1837.  The dates would fit ...
Also, I found an Edmund Johnston born abt 1845 in Illinois, who could be a son, married to a Martha Boone.  Issue :  4 children , youngest of whom is another Edmund.

I would be very grateful of any help, as the above just may be a lot of coincidences !
A thousand thanks in advance, Liz

Sorry Sue, I hadn't read your post properly, and didn't realise that the daughter had died ... my mistake  :-[

I'll now look for F & H's passage back home - many thanks again for all your help.

Sue,  Thank you so much for everything you have posted ...  I have found death of a Frederick Wybrants , Leinster Rd , Rathmines, Dublin in 1897, although he is aged 78, which is a bit much ... when he left for Australia in 1853 he was 26 !  I wonder if it is the same person.
If he died in Ireland too, then perhaps Harriet came back with him.

Her will doesn't seem to mention her daughter.

This ancestor game always has so many questions !  Thanks a million again
Liz

I haven't been able to view Harriet's will , just white pages downloaded !  Has anyone read it - just wanted to know if it mentioned any more children she may have had ...

Also, I found that a F. Wybrants attended the funeral of his brother Jonathan in 1883 in England - perhaps he went back to Ireland too.

Apologies, my mistake ... I thought you were talking about Harriett when you gave parents'names :-[

Good news !  I have the right sister.  Father George died in 1831 and his wife Anna nee Sisson in 1847.  They married in 1806 and eldest son George Sisson Wybrants was born in 1809.  Anna spent most of her married life having children !!!

Good Morning from France !
I am researching my Wybrants ancestors.  The family is originally from Ireland, father George... I already have several children and recently found a son, John Wybrants born 1813, who emigrated to Australia in 1839 and died in Bendigo in 1878.  I have a cutting from the Bendigo Advertiser, giving details of his life as a miner etc.  However, it also said that John "had a brother and sister in the colony" and I think they could be the above Harriett and Frederick...

I can't find anything at all about Frederick except his passage from to Melbourne on the ss Lorena, arriving in Feb 1853.  Harriett was on the same ship.  I have found a marriage in Victoria for Harriett to a Thomas Lowden, the information stops there.
I would like to be sure that Frederick and Harriett are John's siblings and if possible find out a little bit more about them, so any help would be really appreciated.
