Love that article. The lewis brothers would be Janes sons Charles & Thomas I think.

Article above says Narracoorte cemetrary. Found a william d. 1920 & an Elizabeth who died later not before as mentioned in the article


Shame the article didnt have their first names in it.


Mount Alexander Mail (Vic. : 1854 - 1917)
Sat 24 Oct 1863

THE ' TWENTY-FIVE POUNDS NUGGET. . .
"A splendid mass of gold, of over twenty-nine (29) pounds weight in the 'gross, and nearly . twenty-five (25) pounds net, was found at Jones' s Creek, on Monday last, _ by three puddlers — two brothers, named Lewis, formerly in the gingerbeer trade, and another miner named Grimsdale .etc etc

Was just looking on myheritage theres a william lewis who died in 1920 in Narracorte & an Elizabeth lewis who died in 1911 which would fit (her death wasnt overly specific in the article)

My heritage lists 5 kids, 3 of which are adults

Think this is our guy

I cant find anything to confirm these Lewis brothers were your fellas. Im assuming they may have been cause their mother married Grimsdale the following year. But then lots of Lewis's around.

Maybe the below 2 should be HARE as Jane married Hare in 1831.

Richard Lewis Birth: 1833 in ,Middlesex,England
Jane Lewis Birth: 1835 in Middlesex,England

Im not even sure how right ALL of the above info is :confused:
