Anyone got access to "Gravestone Inscriptions Sydney Burial Ground"?
« on: Wednesday 31 January 07 11:10 GMT (UK) »
I wondered whether anyone has easy access to the publication:
"Gravestone Inscriptions NSW Volume 1, Sydney Burial Ground", by K.A. Johnson and M.R. Sainty.
If you do I would like to request a couple of lookups please ...

Looking forward to hearing from someone!  :D

Brilliant, Cass!  :D :D :D  Thanks so much.

I am looking for the following people

Isaiah/Josiah DANKS died 1830 aged about 6

Joseph DANKS died 1836 aged about 54

Mary DANKS died after 1836 - born around 1780.  Maiden name HOLMES - she was Joseph's husband.

I have seen the name DANKS written also as DUNKS and TONKS.

Also searching for Richard BALFOUR, died 1842 aged about 47.  name also spelled BELFOUR and BELFORD.

Thanks Cass, I hope you find something  :D

Cheers
Prue

Hi Prue, looks like you may have hit the jackpot

 The book states that the headstones ended up at  Bunnerong,

 here are the MI Inscriptions  recorded  in the book for Bunnerong in 1969.

C of E Section
 20 Isaiah DANKS died 19th September 1830 aged 6 years and 6months.       (U-P) means Upright headstone in poor condition)

Wesleyan-Methodist Section (thought they be connected to you)
2629 John DANKS died 17th July 1848, also Thomas DANKS died 1st December 1849, also H DANKS died 1852, also Hannah DANKS died 5th September 1856, also Samuel DANKS died 15th September 1863, also Mary, wife of Thomas DANKS died 2nd July 1873,  (U-P)

and also C of E Section
1698 Mr Richard BELFORD died 18th September 1843 aged 45 years
 ( U-F) f= fair

 Nothing recorded for  Joseph or Mary , or DUNKS , TONKS, BELFOUR

According to the book my G G G G Grandfathers headstone also ended up at Bunnerong, when I went out there it appears that some years ago they "cleaned out "the headstones and only a few ended up in a Pioneer Park, my John was not there I hope you have better luck

Thank you SO MUCH Cass, you have made my day!    :D :D :D
I have a feeling that Hannah DANKS is one of mine but will have to check.  The others could be related somehow. 

I am so happy I could jump for joy.  Thank you very very much for finding these for me.

Have a great day!
 :) :) :)

Hi Michelle

I have had a look in the book and it also looks like they went to Bunnerong

Church of England Section  Headstone Inscription

Rebecca Moss wife of Joseph Moss died  30th September 1832 aged 27 years leaving a husband and infant child. also Isaac Moss died 7th April 1832 aged 73 years leaving 3 children. also Isaac Moss junior died 1st September 1837 aged 42 years. also Isabella Moss...also Lydia Moss... also Maria Moss... (A-G)

This is the exact info contained in the book, sorry no dates for Isabella. Lydia and Maria.

Abbreviations  A - Altar  G- Good


There is another  Isaac Moss mentioned in the Jewish Section, don't think it is your but here is the info

Phillip, 3rd son of Isaac & Maria Moss accidentally run over on 17th May A.M. 5622 (A.D 1862) aged 7 years

regards

Cass
