Colomb & (?) Danker related to Dr Frank Nicholas .
Posted by: Nina van Dort (ID *****6456) Date: February 24, 2005 at 23:26:21
  of 880

I am looking for a Patricia & Susan Danker who told my Nicholas cousins in the early 1970īs in Singapore they are great grand children of Dr Frank Nicholas of Ceylon ( who Worked // lived in Perak 1880 - died ca after 1915 )
We do not have much Data on the ( English? ) - Burgher Nicholas Family in Malaya from Ceylon.
I am wondering ?...possible connection that Susan & Patricia Danker could be grand children of Dr Nicholas & Clara Scharenguivel ... could be thru their daughter
Gladys Nicholas who married Robert (BOB ) COLOMB )
More on ...
Gladys Nicholas born Proberly in Perak .
was daughter of Clara Caroline Scharenguivel & Dr Francis (FRANK ) William NICHOLAS .Both born in. Ceylon.

Aunty Gladys NICHOLAS 's... married Robert(Bob) Colomb

originally working in the Malaya ca 1920-30 . Later Gladys went to live with her mother in Singapore.(ca late 1930 - 1942.Emigration to Australia . with her Brother Mervyn Roy Nicholas & his family )

Gladys Nicholas (Mrs COLOMB ) ,and Robert (Bob ) COLOMB

three children,

1- Ronnie COLOMB,...who was in the British marines, and went to South Africa after the war.

ii,Sonny COLOMB ...(this might be a nickname) who became an architect and was in Melbourne, and also

III- Della, COLOMB ..who might have married a Malaysian..and lived in Perth on a farm. This information may not be correct ..(There is other source of a Della Colomb who married a Speldewind in Aust .? (not sure if they are the same persons .

I would like contact ( or data ). to these two Danker Ladies . Susan & Patracia
It might be Possible that their mother was Della Colomb ,hence the connection to Dr Frank Nicholas .
another interesting item was the Colomb Family were European
and they were French in origin. , In Ceylon they go back 5th generations back , but again we are not sure if Bob Colomb was of the same branch
Any help would be grateful, thanks .NvD
