Oh dear. More of them!
Well all I can say is at least the intelligent seem to be procreating, but
nowhere near as fast as the ... oh sorry, I'll shuddup now!
Congratulations and you didn't even do anything for this effort!

Ahhh, so he's a possible cobbler! Now I filmed an interview with a Cobbler
last week. She's about 20 something, makes shoes in the name of PRATTEN in
William Street Paddington and I tell you, she's probably doing better than
the average IT pro!
>He lived at South Head Rd, Sydney in 1871 and 78 Oxford St Sydney in 1874
Wow, you've done your research! Any chance you can help my find my Great
Great Grandmothers Aboriginal homeland?? The Aboriginal LINK agency was
only able to tell me what I already knew.

Any possible relation to Ross Wheeler - Albury Local Internet?

My GAWD! Our families knew each other! AAARGH! Apparently in the
yesteryears, my great's somewhere up the line owned the land between
Chatswood and Hornsby or something like that. Another connection a cousin
I know nothing about and is of little interest apparently held land title
over the Forestville to Frenches Forest areas.
My wife's family owned areas of Coffs Harbour and our joint rellies
(remember Suzanne and I met on the Internet, and then discovered we were
cousins just before we got married) had a very large property we still
can't track back at Bathurst.
