I am searching for information on 2 brothers (twins) who worked on whaling ships and trading ships within Australia and also to NZ. Their names were William and Henry Marks. They were born in Hobart, TAS in 1857 and Henry was working on ships until 1914 at least. I am wondering if anyone has photos or diaries which might mention either/both of these men.
They worked on a number of ships including - Wild Wave, Water Witch, Lady Emma, Helen, Italy, Annie Hill, Zephyr, Guiding Star, Sword Fish and Fairy Rock.
