Correction: The Jewish bible I refered to in my post is not a bible but a prayer book. Also Edward Davies the Jewish bush ranger was the son of Michael John Davies. David Davies was Michael's Grandson.
I've returned home from Port Macquarie loaded up with lots of family history. I bought historical books on Port Macquarie and visited the old cemetery. A lot of the very early headstones are not very legible so I bought a booklet called If I could just see Your face put out by the Port Macquarie Historical society some years ago they translated most of the inscriptions into this booklet so the information wouldn't be lost. I also got a book called the windingsheet it has some great information on most of the convicts that were sent to Port Macquarie when it was a penal colony and the families that settled there. I'm willing to share this info if anyone is interested. The four graves I spoke of at Hibbard were of William Brown b.1817 d.1855, George Smith b.1829 d.1857, John Cockburn Johnstone b.1823 d.1856, James Young b.1798 d.1856. I was able to find these names in the booklet. I also found the grave of David Davies b.1823 in England and died 1836 aged 13 he was the son of Michael John Davies a convict transported for seven years. Michael is also the original owner of Jewish prayer book I spoke about in my last post.

Regards
Ann Davies
