Sorry for the delay.  The family I was looking at in 1860 were Salomon, not Soloman but thought it might be worth posting

1860 census - 4th District 11th Ward New York City, New York, New York, United States
Event Place (Original)   4th District In The 11th Ward, New York, New York, United States

John Salomon M 42 bn Bavaria
Eva Salomon F 37 bn Bavaria
Margaret Salomon F 11 bn Bavaria
Leonhard Salomon M 3 bn New York
Louisa Salomon F 1 bn New York

Many Thanks Rosie,

I will try and find any other members in Melbourne Australia with the information you have found. That may define the Group. Thank you for your help.

How about this  family 1870 Ward 11 district 7
? ous   Solomon 43 born England - Cutler
Annie 36  born Ireland
Margaret 15 born NY
Louisa 14  NY
John 12   NY
Mary 10  NY
Carrie  9  NY
Cecelia Stevens 7      NY
Christen Stevens 5 (male)   NY
Thomas 2months.  NY

At first I thought a second marriage but the age of Thomas rules that out. There could be a sister of either ? Solomon or Annie who married a Stevens and their children are staying with them.

This makes things interesting
1865 census of New York Brooklyn. Kings County

Ann Solmon 57 (poss Solomon) widow Grocer born Ireland has 4 children
Margaret 12
John  8
Mary  6

If Louisa is hers she is missing from this census perhaps staying with others, the ages of the children are in line for those of 1870.The presumed mother Ann/Annie is 57 in 1865 by 36 in 1870.

Thanks for all your help.

The 1872 reference is her Marriage in Melbourne to a Charles Barker White MESSENGER. Her DC 1908 in Sydney shows her birthplace as New York, nothing else! She partnered after Charles death in 1889 to a William Masters and died under his name as Louisa Masters in 1908.
