This lady has no connection to my family but seems sad tho that her own family would have most likely lost contact with her. Everyone has a story but usually its the upper class we hear about so im please someone has told Annie's story to the best they could.

In the 1880’s Annie ‘Bags’ Ferdinand scrimped and saved so that she could travel to Australia in search of her lost love who had moved to the country in search of gold.

Without money or mode of transportation Annie walked through NSW and Queensland looking for her red-headed love.

They raised money for a headstone for her [died 1910] a couple of years ago.

And a book has been written

This is a work of fiction that is informally based on a real person, Annie Ferdinand.
