Hi Dave,

In 1861, John’s family - Alexander 69, Sarah 63, Mary 26 and Ellen Holland 16 are in the Shiffnal RD.

Class: RG9; Piece: 1853; Folio: 3; Page: 2

Searches for John Davidson, born 1840 +/- 2 in Staffordshire/Shiffnal/Weston showed no positive results (although many of his namesakes showed up)!

Perhaps he emigrated to Aus before the census was taken!

Josie :)

DEATHS
DAVIDSON.-On the 6th March, at Bundaberg, John Davidson, chemist, aged 70 years. Deeply regretted.

I thought we started all the Bundy ones with John or was it one of his children. ???

Thanks gibbo. ;)

That photo of the German family at Bethania near Logan River could be one in my tree. I have several families in that area.

Some of these could be from my tree too HERE

I love the church HERE
