Dear Geniene ,

I wonder if you can help me ?

I am searching for details about a Mary Nichus. Possibly changed from Niehus ?

All I know is that Mary put a "IN MEMORIAN" notice in the WED 19th Dec 1923 edition of the Barrier Miner(Broken Hill, NSW) newspaper.

The notice was for a Alberto Panizza who was the great-grandfather of my husband and that he had died the previous year of food poisoning (?).

As Mary was not related to Albert it was a very kind and touching notice.

The rest of the Panizza family migrated after WW2 and do not know of Mary Nichus.

Is our Mary the same as your Mary born 6/12/1905 ?

Thanking you for your consideration in this matter,



EX GENFORUM 21-11-2006:
Hi George were your ears burning this weekend Strange question I know but I was in Adelaide and I went to Centennial Park Cemetery and located the grave of my Grandmother ( Doreen Julia Gordon ( was Julia Doreen Niehus on her birth record) and her husband John Gordon and their grandson Lyndsay Robert Daniels) anyway I got a photo,

Doreen as she was known is the daughter or Frederick ( Fritz) Niehus and Mary Anne Newport. ( they are buried in West Tce Cemetary Adelaide)

Doreen had many siblings,
