How sweet of you to respond so promptly.
Alexander and Euphemia are my great great grand parents, and Simon was Alexander's brother, who was killed by the natives 1858 [from memory] They left Liverpool in 1832 Alexander was 26 and Simon was 19, they came out here in the brig Mountaineer, arrived at Sydney 7 Aug 1832 in a group of 191 immigrants
John was my grandfather's father, I have a photograph somewhere of Grandma {Mariann] May Ann, she was an imposing lady. John worked for a bank in Clunes. Mariann's father was the first Methodist missionary to Tahiti.
Thank you again warm regards, Richard Cadden
