The missing bits on Geoff’s post above has:

Description: English, a ship’s cook, but was recently collecting milk for the Taieri and Peninsular Dairy Company, thirty two years of age, 5ft 7in high, medium build, fair complection, fair hair and moustache… = b 1857

1890 NZ Gov Gazette has a Thomas Daxter done for larceny 28 Oct Dunedin last seen in Dunedin - wonder if he took off to Oz and Elizabeth followed..

The Age Wed 8 June 1898

If Thomas Daxter does not communicate with his wife Elizabeth Daxter within three days, she intends to re-marry - (married 18th June)

hmmmm....
A Thos Dixter arrived 1 Feb 1890 in Mackay Qld on ship “Quetta”

I didn't put it all in, Val wasn't sure if they are copyright, though in separate posts and handwritten is OK..

That makes sense. No death for him as yet. Not surprising really.......more than likely on the run, possible dies as an unknown man.??

Mackay not far from Charter Towers and Townsville. I wonder if Gibbo knows about this.:rolleyes::ROFLMAO:
