Hi,
Can't remember whether I have given you this before on a previous POVAH thread.

At Fawkner Crem.
Vera POVAH aged 60, Garden of Remembrance 1, comp 42, Niche 90, 30/1/1969

Alexander POVAH,aged 45 Garden of Remembrance 1 Comp. Niche 89, 4/1/1949

Edward Adamson POVAH, aged 61 .."more information may be available"...
6/3/1942

Noting that Vera outlived her husband by 20 years, information given on her death certificate may not be reliable regarding her parents' names.

Hi Sue

I've just come across your post regarding the Jacobson and Warke families in Australia.  I am currently researching the same families for a Jacobson descendant in Tasmania and would be interested in exchanging information.

Look forward to hearing back from you

Hi Sue

I wasn't sure that you would receive my message seeing that your posts were in 2007 so I'm glad you did.  My friend Charlie is a grandson of Annie Maud's sister Margaretha Ellen Jacobson (known as Nell and Ellen) who married Charles Seymour Vaughan.

I've done a bit of research on the Jacobsons and Warkes for Charlie mainly using the Victorian BDM indexes but also supplementing that with any articles or BDM notices in newspapers that I could find on the National Library of Australia's site http://trove.nla.gov.au/  I found death notices for Johan Jacobson and Alexander Warke and they have helped confirm the names of their children, especially the married names of their daughters.  There are a couple of interesting articles about Edward Povah as well, just in case you're not familiar with this treasure trove of a site.

I have the names of Johan's parents but nothing further back, also haven't found his arrival in Victoria or elsewhere in the country yet although his death notice in 1925 states he was a "A native of Denmark and colonist of 60 years".  I have possibly found Alexander's arrival in Victoria in 1852 that ties in with his death notice in 1911 that states he was a "colonist of 60 years".

Perhaps you can fill in a few gaps for me (and Charlie).

By the way Charlie showed me a photo of his grandmother (with her husband and 2 sons) recently that was taken around 1912 or so from memory - if you'd like a copy I could borrow it and scan for you.  I see that attachments are allowed in this group.

cheers for now

I know this is an old stream but I just found it and am chasing information on someone mentioned in the messages here:-

George Washington Vaughan - he married Letitia Johnson on 19 June 1911

But did they have any children?

And does anyone know when and where he died?

And did he have any siblings? (I know - believe - an older brother died at sea)

It is GW Vaughan's father I am following an interest in and want to track if he had any existing family today
