Starting with LEOPOLD in Germany ending with DAWSON in Brisbane

Sanremo - Imperia
Hi Everyone. This is a new thread posted by LadySharp - Australian born female - USA grown until 22 yrs. - European resident for span between 22 and now! Am researching Australian Ancestors starting with a German couple from Hamburg - August LEOPOLD/Elizabeth FROMHEIM emigrated cca 1848 via Rio de Janeiro from Hamburg to NSW. Daughter Leontine LEOPOLD b. Rio de Janeiro cca. 1948 d. 1937?? married Alexander Peterson CAMPBELL Springdallah 1866 BUT - have conflicting information which says CAMPBELL also married a Matilda May SMITH of Lucky Woman's Mine same year? I have Leontine ( Leopold ) CAMPBELL listed on my maternal grandmother's grave site. Her name was Ivy Olive CAMPBELL b. 1889 - Cunnamulla d. 1920 Brisbane + married to Thomas Michael DAWSON b. 1889 - Gympie d. 1973 Brisbane. Am stuck on WHO was really A.P. CAMPBELL'S wife - Leontine OR Matilda? Matilda's parents are listed as: James SMITH - Hotel-keeper Lucky Woman's + Elizabeth LEOPOLDwhich takes me back to August LEOPOLD.
Alexander's parents are listed as: Joseph CAMPBELL - Sailor + Isabella PETERSON. I am hoping someone can help out here? Much appreciated any in-put! Ciao, LadySharp
