Classification: Biography
Surnames: McDowell
My GG Grandfather arrived in 1855 in SA. He moved with his wife Eliza Jane (Sommerville) and child James to Victoria. Their second child Thomas Albert was born 1856 in Woolshed near Beechworth. John's occupation on entering Australia was listed as labourer B index 1061/3. In Tyrone Northern Ireland he was a farmer as was his father.

Does anyone have any information about John and his involvement in the gold mining town of Woolshed.
John returned to Beechworth in later years and is buried in the Beechworth Cemetry.

Thank you for your information....regards Kay
