We are related to Ron Richards the famous boxer, and my great Uncle Bruce was the first Aboriginal man to start a funeral business. He was awarded a British empire medal for services to assist with the funerals of all Aboriginal personnel who died in WW2. Aubrey Maurer, my great grandmother's son was the second squadron leader for WW2, he was sadly killed in action The Williams family in Garah not far from the Gil Gil creek areas knew our Aboriginal family, as they worked for the Williams Yet they denied any knowledge of my family being Aboriginal.
Our great great grandfather John Richards and daughter Esther Richards is buried along the Bengerang stock route.
I believe there was a tribe of Aboriginal people on the other side of the route that lived and continued their way of life back in the 's. The name Carr was given to Caroline as a young child and this 'white' man Carr gave this same name to the rest of her tribe. All I know We are related to the Briggs by marriage as well as the Duncans Roberts and Cutmores.

Lots of people were sent to Cherbourg and other missions. Lots of the names mentioned in these posts are well-known amongst the mob - just get out and talk to people and someone will know someone - never give up hope ; Best to everyone, Catherine. Hi, I'm trying to find info on my great-grandmother. I'm not sure if the Narrabri area is part of Kamilaroi or not but if anyone can help it would be great. Her mothers name was possibly Jane. There are no older members of our family living now so the Balfe part may never be answered.
Isobel was born around in Narrabri or Inverell nsw. They had seven children - the first possibly not belonging to John. All children have now passed. The family lived in places such as Narrabri nsw, Bonalbo nsw, Amosfeild nsw and Stanthorpe qld. I hit a brick wall every time with Isobel. There just doesn't seem to be any info out there if she had siblings or her parents names. I am so proud of my aboriginal heritage but feel disconnected not knowing where I come from. Please please if anyone can help it would be awesome.
My great great grandmother was born Martha Mason in Breeza and had a daughter Gladys E Mason and two sons one named Roy Mason but we are unsure of the seond sons name. If anyone knows any Mason's that may be related please email me at: pampermum yahoo. Hi Leanne comment We are related!!

Any information would be greatly appreciated. I live in Wee Waa, my husbands family are Kamilaroi descendants. We do have an Historical Society, as does Narrabri. There was a mission out at Pilliga for a long time. I have discovered that once a couple split, they didn't often remarry but took their new partners name, so children could come under either names, makes life interesting.
Am having trouble accessing to be able to send anyone a message.

But if you can contact me I will try to help. Lists parents, if supplied age, dod, place of death and burial place. Its over pages. Chris nichols, Jack speeding was my great great grandfather. Feel free to contact me via email brymad97 Hotmail. Hi I am looking for any help possible, I have been researching my family history for years and have been told many times that my great great grandfather was aboriginal from Moree he was born in and went by the name Thomas Smith. We understand that at those times they took many European names and cant be sure that was by birth.
I have his death certificate which gave his age of 63 and birth town as Moree and year of birth as and he died in May so we have been trying to track down from there with no luck he went on to work on a station outside of Toowoomba which is where he met my great great grandmother. They then had three children a set of Twins William and Alice Alice passed a few days after birth and then another son Noel. All but Noel has passed on we cannot locate Noel. My grandfather never spoke of his parents even to my uncles and aunts to which I have asked many questions. Wanting to know if anyone can help with how I can go about further finding information of my heritage and if any one knows of any other decendants from this family line : Thanks in advance Anita.
Rob Fox. Hi Everyone, Researching my Aboriginal roots as many others. My grandmother born Qurindi Maiden name Bradford. Know of many Elsley's buried in Quirindi cemetery. My great grandmother was Annie nee Elsley Bradford. Did not know of the aboriginal connection with Elsley. The Bradfords moved to Carrington,Newcastle mid 's where my mum was born. Email me as I have done lots of research.
I know Elsley in Quirindi failed for bankruptcy early 's so perhaps they moved to Newcastle as well? Annie Bradford lived in 26 Smart Street Carrington. To no 99 are you sure it is not Sarah Bradford? Thank you for your info. I have been researching family tree for many years and heartening to read your comments about never giving up. Regards Rob. They had 11 children. She married a second time to a William Smith from Cessnock. His father was a James Smith and mother Margaret Alder. Rachel's first marriage was witnessed by a Thomas Smith. The name Smith keeps popping up in my records.
We are unable to trace a birth record for Rachel but stories through her children, grand children and great grand children indicate that she was aboriginal. Hope I have made some sense.
