red mail Rodgers Family
G'Day searchers, I hope you are learning heaps about your ancestry. I am hoping to find information on the Rodgers family. My GGF John Rodgers was born (Marriage Certificate source) in Castledawson ~1861 and his parents were listed as James ~1832 and Margaret (nee Hawking) ~1834. It is likely but not confirmed that they were the Rodgers family that emigrated to Aust. aboard the 'Great Britain' in 1867. Could anybody help me to find details about the Rodgers family? I would love to get details for James and Margaret regarding their parents and birthplaces etc. I would be grateful for any help however small. Good Luck, Greg

red mail John Hillman 1805 - 1864
John Hillman, my emigrant ancestor. Born Castledawson 24 June 1805. Died (while visiting from his Wisconsin home) New York 24 September 1864. Emigrated from Ireland to Albany, NY ca. 1824 with his parents and elder siblings . Married 3rd November 1828 Jane Ann van Wormer (born 21st July 1809 Albany, NY: died Albany, NY 29th July 1889). He is one of several Hillmans working at addresses in Washington Street, Albany in the shoe trade in the later 1820s. I assume they were all most likely related, but I've not been able to figure out just where some of them fit in to the family. 9 children, probably. And probably all born in Albany, NY. By 1849 he had relocated to New Orleans, LA and it was from there that, with his eldest son, he set out on an expedition to California in response to 'Gold Rush' rumors. He returned quite soon, without any fortune, and fetched up farming in southern Wisconsin. His son, John Wesley Hillman 1832 - 1915, stayed out west several years and achieved minor celebrity status by 'discovering' Crater Lake in Oregon. The discovery was made in 1853, though the celebrity only came many years later when it was determined by others that Crater Lake was a National Treasure. I would welcome the chance to exchange genealogical info concerning the children or remoter descendants of John Hillman and Jane Ann van Wormer.
