Hi
Well I think this is the immigrant arrival for Louisa
MOON (sic) Louisa
Aged 20
Date 2/6/1877  EDIT
Ship Indus
to Rockhampton.

Interestingly, or maybe purely co-incidentally, there was on the same voyage
McGREGOR, John
Aged 15  ::)

There is evidence, if it is of interes,t that Henry John  McGREGOR was close to his mother and family.

Advise if it is relevant to your inquiry and I will type it up.

The Qld electoral roll shows in 1905 Louisa BAKER lived at Goodwin Street Bundaberg.  Street numbers are not given, but also at Goodwin Street Bundaberg in 1903 and  1905, Henry John McGREGOR, a carter.

After his marriage in 1906, the 1908 roll shows him at Park Street Bundaberg as a carter, but perhaps his wife has not enrolled so does not show.

John Henry’s half- sister, the daughter of Jesse BAKER was registered as Mabel Grace BAKER but is sometimes seen as Mary and sometimes as May.

She married in 1901 (reg 000121) Mabel Grace BAKER to Jens Peter NELSEN in QLD.
The surname was actually NIELSEN.
 Jens applied successfully for naturalization  in 1905 as a native of Denmark and the documents show he arrived here in 1897, and is now married with one child.  He also is a carter and lives at Goodwin Street Bundaberg.

The son, George Henry NIELSEN was born 1902 in Qld (ref 000496)

I am not sure that this marriage was successful and I have not located the couple sharing an address. At some point Mabel Grace became Mrs Fraser.
 
All this is not enough to be positive, but to me it indicates that Louisa BAKER was close to her son Henry, and after her marriage to Jesse BAKER and his death, the boy remained with her in the same street (possibly the same house) in Bundaberg until he married Harriett Matilda.

In your original post….

Hello,  does anyone have any information on henry john, army records state he was born in roma queenland about 1880 and died in france 1917  (ww1), wife was harriett matildaa streeter, i'am trying to find his parents ca find a lot information on harriett.  regards carolaj

This is very likely the right birth. Fannie is likely a mis-transcribing of Jannie, Jannet etc.
Please note the father's name is not listed and the surname is NOON-- The child was illegitimate.


Possibly your Henry John McGREGOR?

QLD BDM birth
NOON Henry John   born  30/12/1881
parents Louisa Fanny NOON
1881/C/3809

Today you have a father’s name which you have not mentioned before. ;D
What is the source of this information please.
Do you have a birth or death certificate for Henry John? 

THANKS<  Its certainly him with his mother but i wonder what happen to his father , that whats i was having trouble with in the first place, i have his father as john malcolm mcgregor, there is plenty of john mcgregors.  will keep looking once again thank you for your help  carolaj
