John Alexander Widdowson, arrives in Sydney, on the ship Ceramic(White Star Line). Departure Date - 20 Aug 1927. Liverpool.

He dies, 25 Dec 1927 @ Adaminaby, New South Wales.

There appears to be some sort of Coroners Inquest, giving death Abt 1927 - Murrimhagee River Boldre . (Murrumbidgee River,Bolaro, NSW. ).??

Death registered 1928 - Cooma, New South Wales. ?? Father, John Widdowson.

Is there anything in the Newspapers to suggest his demise, or where his money went. (NSW - Deceased Estate Files).

I don't think he had much time to get married and have kiddies, poor bloke.:(
