Ok, 4 brothers and mother fit but where is the arrival before 1866 of the sister?

Also, how was John the depositor for the 1866 group if he died on the 1864 voyage?

That must be the one who made the deposit.

Was the sister who arrived before 1866 married?

The deposit date was 5 June 1865. John son of James and Ellen was 6 months old.
Not sure of the protocol then, but the deposit could have been made by Mrs John Mckerahan [I appreciate husband John was deceased] :rolleyes:

Posible..

Andrew Rodgers paid the deposit for John & Robert. That John paid the deposit for brother James.

From the manifest of 'Sir Robert Sale'

Son in Law Andrew ROGERS Bootmaker Tenterfield
Any Deposit Journal then for John 50 and Mary and Mathew and William per 'Sir Robert Sale' 1864?

I've just joined looking to find things I don't know. I don't have documents to prove this right now but from memory Andrew Rogers paid for all of them. And I thought John and Mary (William and Edward) were the last to arrive! Will go back through documents later...
