RE : RE: RE : [JohnstonAustralia] My Johnstons in Ireland, NZ & Australia
- Hi there Tony,
thank you very much for your help. The
Maturin/Johnston connection is Me !!!!! With a few
distant cousins in England Ireland and Wales and one
in Australia !
I'll look at the Rootswebb too.
Someone called Joan gave me William's wife's death in
Chatswood NSW and then her birth in Karcultaby South
Wales. I think the Mathers must definitely have been
from South Wales.
I just have to find Williams death - probably in South
Wales somewhere as his wife probably went to NSW to be
close to son Graydon after that ...
We were in Darwin a couple of years ago, when visiting
one of our sons who was working in Sydney for six
months. We really enjoyed our trip "down under"
Many thanks for everything
