Comments: Hi CTI! I'm searching for any background information (ie parents & siblingss' names, emigration date etc.) of my g/g/g-m Margaret Jane Symington, Simington et al, who was b.1817 Dungannon, Co. Tyrone and next m.1842 my g/g/g-f Charles Campbell Caldwell(b.1812 New Carlisle,Qc,Canada) @ St Andrews Scots Church, Sydney, NSW, Australia. They raised 5 chn: Margaret Jane C./Moodie (b.1843); Caroline Sydney C./ Blundell(b. 1845); Sarah Ann C./ Cowling (b.1847); Charles Henry C. (b/1850) and my g/g-f Alfred William C. (b.1852). Margaret Jane Symington / Caldwell Snr d. 1891 in Pyrmont, Sydney.

Robert C./Sarah H. Todd is my other "brickwall". So much for My Journey , but being 75 yrs old, I'm running out of time to solve both brickwalls!!.
In anticipation of a response:"Many thanks for taking the time for reading my message and hopefully I receive back any detail/s or direction to take at all, which may help me to continue my difficult journey of discovering my maternal ancestory above and my current "brickwall".
Kind Regards - Bob C.
P.S I have only discovered this great website and appreciate the time and effort your dedicated volunnteers give to it and will obviously need to donate, if my "brickwall" is removed in any small way.

Comments: Hi All! . Being an Australian, my link to Co. Tyrone is through my g/g/g-m Margaret Jane Syminton / Siminton (& maybe Simonton / Sementon). I have little backgound information on her except I know she was born at Dungannon in 1817 and married my g/g/g-f Charles Campbell "Chas" Caldwell (a Canadian from New Carlisle, Qc with a marine background ) at St. Andrews Scots Church Sydney, NSW, Australia in 1842 & d. 1891 in Sydney. I have no idea of the name of her parents, her siblings (if any) or what date she arrived in Australia? They had 5 chn: Margarete Jane C. Jnr, / Moodie, Caroline Sydney C./ Blundell, Sarah Ann C. / Cowling, Charles Henry C. & Alfred William (my g/g-f). From my research Charles Campbell had "gold fever", travelling from Australia to the California Gold Rush with the 3 eldest and returning with 4 chn and also the Peruvian Gold Rush. During the Victorian Gold Rush he met the diggers arriving at Sandridge (now Port Melbourne), as he had a grocer/hardware store selling them necessary items to reach the Gold Fields of Bendigo, Ballarat etc. Thanking you in anticipation that you take the time dicover my brickwall in Co. Tyrone. Regards Bob C.

Comments: Hi. I’ve been trying to find out more about my family history. I have been unable to trace any further back than my 2x great grandparents. William Lockhart was born about 1785 in Dooragh, County Tyrone and his wife Margaret Lockhart née Best in about 1795 in Dooragh, County Tyrone. They emigrated to Australia with their children in 1841 on the vessel “Cadet”. William died at “Mountain Run” Bathurst, NSW, Australia in September 1861 and Margaret died at “Mountain Run”, Bathurst NSW, Australia in August 1859. I know William’s parents were James and Mary from William’s death certificate and Margaret’s parents were George Best and Mary Carter from Margaret’s death certificate. Any information would be very appreciated. Thank you to the volunteers Denise
