Don't know if Rachel arrived married or married here. Don't know if her maiden name is WRIGHT. I have no maiden name for John's mother. Not even sure if it is CRANE on the shipping record. :rolleyes:
 
Think i have the cousin Rachel.


CRANE Andrew 7 Oriental 1850
CRANE Eliza Jane 19 Oriental 1850
CRANE Irvin 36 Oriental 1850
CRANE Mary Anne 15 Oriental 1850
CRANE Rachel 36 Oriental 1850
CRANE Rachel 4 Oriental 1850
CRANE Sarah 12 Oriental 1850
CRANE Thomas 2 Oriental 1850
 
Thanks gibbo. :)

That must refer to Rachel aged 36 if that's the right one.

Need to find her death. Not this one:

CRANE Rachel Death notice 10JUL1958 Death 86 at Coonabarrabran Sydney Morning Herald 19JUL1958

Can't see a remarriage or a death in NSW for Rachel.

How much, if any, did you want on the Crane family?

Marriage [Rachel jnr]
2673/1873 DENT JOHN CRAIN RACHEL ADELONG

Death
16271/1915 DENT RACHEL IRWIN RACHEL PETERSHAM
 
A leading question. :2fun:

Not much. I'd settle for a death for Rachel senior hoping the reg has her parents.

A tree with Irwin has his siblings but no marriage and no Rachel. :D

I did check using Rachael as well.

Death 13606/1884 CRAIN RACHEL - THOMAS - SARAH - ADELONG

It will be hard proving Thomas is a brother of Stewart WRIGHT.

Death 2284/1891 CRAIN IRWIN - ANDREW - UNKNOWN - ADELONG

I'd say they were looking for gold. :D
