Hi Bev, Sorry for the delay but we were one of the lucky ones who got a
down pour in the last lot of rain that came through, which gives you
plenty of extra jobs to do. We have just been looking into my wifes
family, who it seems come from the Gympie area. You said you had some
data on old records. Have you anything on Joseph Ross born Ireland 1811
and died in Gombooran Queensland 1898, it seems he was my wifes 5th
generation decendant. He landed in Woolongong about 1831 and lived there
for 45 years then moved to Queensland where he lived for 22 years at a
place called Lincon villa Goombooran
Happy to hear about your rain - you folk around Tara, along with many in
other locations, have been drought ridden for too long!
I have one only Death Registration in Queensland for 1898 - Joseph ROSS,
Father Joseph ROSS, Mother Violetta ORR.
He died 16 July 1898 Registration Number 1898/002021.
There are no entries in the Dern Index (incomplete in any case), and
nothing at http://interment.net/aus/qld/index.htm. It appears
Goomboorian (note spelling Ron) has not been transcribed.
I am currently looking at marriages in the Wollongong area, BUT please
verify this information before recording it.
Joseph ROSS married Velinda DAILY Roman Catholic Illawarra; Wollongong
1843 Volume V18432001 93
Joseph ROSS married Belinda DALY Roman Catholic Illawarra; Wollongong
1843 Volume V184348 123
(and therein lies the reason why you MUST get verification - this is the
New South Wales Births Marriages and Deaths can be accessed on the net
at www.bdm.nsw.gov.au/ - select from the left hand column "Family
History". The above records are on CD here, but you might like to look
at that site in any case.
Father: Joseph ROSS Mother: Belinda Roman Catholic, Illawarra;
John ROSS 1845 Volume V18452595 62
William ROSS 1847 Volume V18472981 64
**Michael ROSS 1854 Volume V18543668 72 Roman Catholic, Kiama
**Violetta J ROSS 1860 Registration Number 1860/7925 Kiama (no denomination)
James ROSS 1861 Registration Number 1861/8337 Kiama (no denomination)
By looking that little bit further, Ron, we can reasonably expect this
is your Joseph. He has a daughter named after his Mother, and his wife
is Belinda. The fact that most of these records reference the
denomination as Roman Catholic and he's from Ireland, enforces that we
are guessing fairly well. I don't like such a small family, with such
gaps between births, so I'm going back in to search without a Mother.
Okay Mary A ROSS 1848 Joseph and Velende Roman Catholic Illawarra;
Wollongong Vol V1848654 66
