    Starting with LEOPOLD in Germany ending with DAWSON in Brisbane

    Thanx Gibbo for the advice and the offer. I know that certificates can be of great help but, have got this far in my search just by sheer perseverance and some luck in linking flashing dots when I bump into any. I got some very good in-put from an Aussie lady I was in touch with who was also...

    Lucky Womens Mine was in Springdallah area - a tent town in the outback which apparantly yielded large gold nuggest for a while. Have tried checking out names of area hotels in 1866 to see if James Smith's name comes up. Nothing yet! LS

    Yes, Ivy Olive Campbell was my mother's Mother. Leontine Leopold OR Matilda Smith would have been Ivy's mother. LS

    Hi Horse - So , do we agree that Rickart and Thomas Leopold were both children of August Leopold and Elizabeth Fromheim? Looks like that to me. LS

    Good going Geoff. Thanx! I found a John Fromheim married to a Johanna Deckman in the South Australia Diggers Index who - look to me like they could be Elizabeth's mother + father even tho she is called Dorothea in the Talbot archives. Now . . if we can just follow this Fromheim thread and see...

    Starting with LEOPOLD in Germany ending with DAWSON in Brisbane

    Hi again from LS, Up to now I believe it has been proved true that Elizabeth Fromheim/ Fromhein/Fromhain WAS actually married to August LEOPOLD – I also found that August* Heinrich Johann LEOPLODT b. 1825 Hamburg died 1862 at TALBOT GOLD FIELDS and there is also mention of a Dorothea Elizabeth...

    Starting with LEOPOLD in Germany ending with DAWSON in Brisbane

    Hi Everyone - from before and up to now! LadySharp is still locked in to the conversation and will give some additional in-put ASAP. Gibbo, FYI - Witnesses on marriage cert. 2854 - Alexander Campbell ( I'm wary of this name because it lacks the proverbial 'P' for Peatson/Peterson ) and Matidla...

    Hi to Gibbo, Horse, Geoff and welcome Dave. You'll see that after reading my last post - a few mins. ago - I gave you a Maud b. 1876 at Hay.

    Hi Gibbo, Horse and Geoff. Thanking all for thoughts and info. I have already had the thought that there might be a mix-up on names + spouses, etc. CAMPBELL was a fairly common name and it appears they moved about a lot. I've also heard stories that many German immigrants changed their names to...
