In Reply to: Billy Organ Master Mariner of New Zealand by Geoff Matthews of 258

Hi Geoff,

This a bit of a long shot, but I had a cousin Billy Organ named after my Dad William Worrall. I think Billy was born in Newcastle, England. After a fairly disasterous marriage, he up sticks and left the country. He would phone my Dad from time to time as he always got on well with him. The phone calls came from lots of different places, so if he was a mariner, that would fit in. I also know he spent at least some time in New Zealand. If he's still alive he would probably be in his late sixties now I would think. If any of that rings true with you, I can tell you about his Mum, Jessie, who was one of my Dad's sisters.
