Leander John Johnson was in Queensland in 1925. he was at Apple Tree Creek, and his Occupation was given as rigger. No other Johnsons there.

But he is listed twice for 1925. The other listing has him as being at Salome, Outram St, Lota. Occupation = Rigger.
There are other Johnsons listed, but none for that address.

Sorry my mistake ::)

Should have read it a bit better.


There are quite a few Johnson's  but your Sarah Ann is not one of them.

Do you have the name of the cemetery she is buried at.

I also see you are going to get a cert from the BDM here in NZ

Deeiluka,

I'm wondering if he stayed in the country and died up north? My grandmother can't tell me any more than his name, which is rather sad.

Newbe,

I was hoping to fax the BDM in NZ tomorrow and at least get a birth cert for Rosetta Johnson, then work on the parent's marriage certificate. their parents should be on the marriage cert and hopefully a birth cert for each of them can follow... though i've been told someone tried before me and came up with nothing.

i can try, though!

Belinda, in 1893 he was in NSW.
The Sands Directories for NSW and Sydney have him at 44 Goodsir St, Balmain as Leander Johnson.

In 1912 as Leander J Johnson he is at 3 Paul St, Balmain.

And in 1915 he is listed as Leander Johnson at 11 Susan St, Annandale.

Looking back I see you say that Rosetta may have been adopted.

Do you have her parents names as I may be able to find a marriage year on the 1848 to 1956 NZSG marriage cd

Hi Dee,

Just looking in NSW BDM and have Leander J married Olive Woodward. If this is one and the same as my Leander, that would debunk my cemetary entry above, as Sarah should then be a divorcee/spinster and not a widower...

hmm very interesting!

I'm not sure that he could be in AUS until at least 1916, as Rosetta was born in Auckland in 1912 - 1916

the only parents i have for rosetta louise are Leander Johnson and Sarah Annie Wagner..

a marriage cert for them would be gold, though! :)
