One tree has them as sisters..

"Johanna Emilie Maria (Mary) Lebrenz
BIRTH 25 MAR 1858 • Groß Fredenwalde, Uckermark, Brandenburg, Germany
DEATH 29 JUN 1949 • Maryborough, Queensland, Australia"

Another has this, no parents or siblings

"Johanna "Jane" Le Berenz /Librenz
DEATH Queensland, Australia"

Another has Johanna's birth as 1856

"Johanna 'Jane' Hannah Lebrenz (1856-1949)
Fact Details

And this for siblings..

"Mary Emmeline Amelia LEBRENZ 1850–1935

Caroline Wilhelmine Emelia Henrietta Liebrenz 1862–1957
Margaretha Lieberenz
Margaretha Lieberenz 1865–1946
Louisa Lebrenz 1868–1871"

If that is the correct family and the offspring are correct, i.e.

Caroline Wilhelmine Emelia Henrietta Liebrenz 1862–1957 - b. Germany
Margaretha Lieberenz 1865–1946 - b. Qld.

Arrival = 1862-1865.

Thanks Geoff.

More variation of the family name.

Thanks Val.

No, I had not seen that.

Now I'm confused. If Johanna is the mother of the one found guilty then how come he appears in the Electoral rolls.

Death 1960/B39204 Jenner Johann Gottlieb - Johann Gottlieb - Johanna Librenz

yup Dave... confusing name as there are a couple of Johann Gotlieb Jenners, so just gotta figure out which parents they belong too as all as a few William/Wilhelm Jenners...oh there's a few Johanna/Hannah's....:D
Only one with mother Johanna.

Tree has to be wrong. This death looks right for one sister.

Death 1917/C01620 Topp Emilie Caroline - Carl Lebranz - -

Marriage 1872/C0619 Jenner Gottlieb - Librenz Jane

Marriage 1904/C1140 Stencke Carl - Jenner Johanna

Can't find Jane/Johanna's death.
I checked the 1949 death then 1912 - 1950 and then a 3rd marriage for Jane/Joanna and still could not find her death.

Very hard to tell one sibling from another when they share some given names and then swap the names around around.

If you are serving a full-time prison sentence of less than three years you can vote in federal elections.

If your sentence is three years or longer, you can remain on the roll but you are not entitled to vote until you are released from prison.

DEATH OF MRS. F. LAMPRECHIT. The friends of Mrs. F. Lamprecht would no doubt be sorry to hear of her death, which took place at her residence early on Monday morning last. She had been in ill health for a few weeks prior to her demise, and was attended by Dr. South, of Boonah. The deceased was a general favourite with all who knew her, and was of a quiet and kindly disposition. Mrs. Lamprecht was born in Neuhausen, Germany, in the year 1874, and was 35 years of age at the time of her demnise. She had resided in Queensland 25 years, and was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wilhelm Topp,of Milbong, who are still alive. Mrs.Lamprecht lived for a good many years in the Helidon district, and only, about 10 months ago they left Helidon to reside on the Fassifern Estate.
The funeral took place on Tuesday last, and, despite the wet weather, a goodly number joined in the cortege. The last sad rites at the graveside were performed by the Rev. C. Kruger. Deceased leaves a widower and four sons. With them, and her parents, her four sisters, and her five brothers, much sympathy is felt.

Thanks Val.

I just love all those middle names. :) My main lines - Germany, Scotland, Ireland and England. My grandmother's middle name was Frederike. Go back a bit further to Johan Georg Heinrich which eventually became George Henry.

... Mother of Bill, Hannah, Ivy, Les, Con, Ron, Clinton and Pat ...

Ok, Les = Leslie John
