Hi I have been researching my family tree for years but have now set my attention to my wife's side of the family which is difficult on the paternal side as it is aboriginal based and there is not much information relating to the indigenous Australians but that being said the maternal side is much more detailed and one of the area's includes the Nash family as the son of Samuel Nash (1791-1850) and Ann Preston (1798-1881) this was Humphrey Nash (1835-1886) who came out to Australia departing Liverpool on the 20th May 1852 on the ship Bourneuf arriving  at Geelong Victoria Australia on September 3rd 1852 he would pass away on the 23rd January 1886 at Katunga Victoria Australia and he was buried on January 24th 1886 at Numurkah Cemetery not far from Katunga. The burial on the day after death would probably have been due to it being hot January is the middle month of summer and could have been 100F (40C). Humphrey came to Australia while most of his brothers and sisters moved to the USA I wonder if this was due to the failed salt business of his Father's?
