Hi,

Sorry not to have replied sooner.
RootsChat isn't used for searching for living relatives, we can't give out details of living people, maybe GenesReunited?

For searching for your Australian and American ancestors I think it might be best if you put a new post on the USA and Australian boards so people who have more expertise in these areas will be able to help. Link them to this post so that they can see what has already been found :)

Regards,
Daisy

I am a friend of the Annie's Great grandson in the US via son William.  Annie was raised by her aunt and uncle Capt. Luke Hubbuck and Mercy Flood.  She married William Collins in Wisconsin.  I have other information if you are still looking.

Hello, I am descended for Annie's brother, Alfred FLOOD.

The children were all born in Queensland, soon after their parents emigrated from England.

The parents were Thomas FLOOD and Mary Ann GREIG. They were struggling in this new country, and when Mary Ann's childless sister visited with her husband, a ship's captain, they adopted Annie.

So Annie had a great life, travelling to different countries with her parents, and receiving a good education. She eventually married a preacher and settled in Canada then the USA.

The FLOOD family were originally from Norfolk, and had moved to London only to find work. John and Mercy GREIG lived in London.
