It's been a long time since I have chatted to Bev too, I was in contact many years ago with her.
I am a Reed by birth and decended from Emma Hoskings 1st husbands ( Richard) brother (John who married Elizabeth Wade ) and then Jane Nicholls and who lived in Steiglitz, Victoria after they came out from Cornwall. Feel free to contact me I am still picking away at the Reed info and after 8 years of searching I was able to find recently more info on Richards and Johns brother Joseph in Cornwall and a possible inkling on how Emma and Richard met. I also have a memorial inscription of the death of Joseph Reed and Elizabeth Reed ( Oates) John and Richards Parents at St Day Cornwall. Regards Susan at firstname.lastname@example.org
