I can't find a baptism for Henry. The 1858 shipping record has mother as just Mary.

Death 2072/1881 MITCHELL HENRY - JOHN DIED PELICAN - SYDNEY

Trying to find his birth/death... he's a bit elusive

1881 is the right death. Elizabeth Mogg married John Mill Hancock.

No baptism found for Henry.

Still trying to find the right death for James MOGG.

John Mill Hancock is the really elusive one. Probably born Devon 1818-1836 ???

We are doing 'H' not 'M' :biggrin:

Death 10408/1889 HANCOCK JOHN M - PETER DIED WINDSOR WINDSOR

HANCOCK John Mill Funeral notice 04DEC1889 Funeral late of Mulgrave, near Windsor SMH 04DEC1889
