Searching for information please on William THOMPSON (born abt.1843) & his wife Matilda (nee WATSON) born 1843 and their children. We know that Jemima Caroline, Catherine, Mary Jane, Elizabeth, William Alexander & Emily Agnes all settled in Sydney, Australia.

We'd appreciate any help. Warm Regards from Australia. Janette HUGHES
Hi I am looking for any information on Jane EMMERSON born around 1845 in the county Fermanagh. On her marriage certificate her parents are listed as William Emmerson- farmer and mother Mary McLaughlin. Her birthplace was listed as Fermanagh. She emigrated to Australia prior to 1867, not sure of the exact date as I have not found any records for this. On her marriage certificate she married John Thomas ASTON(saddler) in 1867 in Bowen Queensland Australia. He was from Armagh TANDRAGEE and emigrated around 1865. She married Alfred CHARLTON after the death of her first husband around 1877. She died in 1920 Cloncurry Queensland. The only information I have about her relates to Australia. Thanks in advance.
