Jean, Thank you for your quick response. You have confirmed my findings. My GGGrandfather, John Gibson, died in 1855 when his son, Robert Gibson, was very young and then Robert died in 1880 before his son, Robert John Gibson, my Grandfather, was born. My Grandfather died relatively young also which seems to be the tragic family pattern. Recently I got Thomason Snowdon's Will and was surprised to find she had another son, James Miller, who was left in Northumberland. I presume he was too young to make the trip out. A few years ago I was in touch with a descendant of Robert Miller, Thomason's brother, who had family around Bendigo but lost contact. I would like to find any descendants of Thomason's niece, Kate Stewart Hargreaves, who had 3 daughters. Apparently Thomason left her a family album. Thank you again, Irene.
