Could anyone provide me with information relating to the Nielsen (name change to Neilson at some time in Australia) family from Denmark which arrived in Queensland and started their future from Charters Towers.
Arrived in the country and sought fortune by selling Koala, Possum and other native animal hides.
Won/bought a ballot blocks in Queensland early 1900's.
I believe that my grandfathers parents (I think possibly Robert and Eliza) were owners of "Harvest Home" cattle property, south of Charters Towers.
My Grandfather was Warren Neilson, of "Glen-Avon Stn" Clermont, and "Annandale".
A cattle farmer and horse breeder. Developed Abbey Breed of horse with Ross Clarke (I think) of Murrurundi, northern NSW.
Married Elsie Easton, four children, Maisie, Gai, Warren and Robert.
I think it is my GGGrandfather that was murdered on the road from Clermont to Mackay running deliveries on a bullock dray.
I would like information of names, dates and details of pre-australia life.
Thank-you, with much gratitude.
Kazandra (Neilson) Zinnetti
