Re: [suth_to_aus] John Oates - query on MARY ANN GORDON from Sutherlandshire
- JohnTake the advice from jenelle. I haad Googled and came up with quite a lot on a Mary Ann Gordon and a John, seems that is not the one judging from you shown pedigree it could be a James.Try Jenelle's suggestions before you go any further. Have you looked for a death notice for the James you have marked.Lots of things to look at.PaddyFrom: Jenelle McCarrick <jmac2005@...>

My name is William John Oates. Here is a picture of the relationship with Mary Ann Gordon. I grew up in Ballarat and most of my family are still there. I will shortly visit the Smythesdale cemetery and have seen the pictures of the Gordon / Daniel burials online.
Up till now, I have not been aware of any Scottish blood in the family, the Oates side being mostly Cornish. I know a lot more generally now than I did 2 days ago. It sounds like the numbers in that part of the world are relatively small and it may not be too hard to get further details.
Would appreciate any direction you can give.

Are we talking about a John who married a Mary Ann Gordon perhaps inVictoria Australia. Made his money in the goldfields?
