That's fine thanks gibbo. It's connected to Mellefont so not that far off a main line.

But I think we don't go further back but fill in some gaps between 1881 and 1893 marriage in Walcha.

My turn to cook again so I'll be back later.
 
Yeah, a very quick one. White rice instead of brown rice which takes 30 min to boil.


So Frank arrived 1881 - 1889.

Dont know how we will go chasing his arrival. Capetown, New Zealand then Australia.
 
3 Aug 1893 Walcha.

So arrival from NZ unassisted.

Can't see his arrival in Sydney or Victoria on PROV.
