Re: Searching for g.grandfather George Wills
hi Chris ,it's Lyn,I've just started to get interested again in the family tree. I saw Dot recently Joes daughter she's now in her eighties and has always been unable to find out about her grandfather.One thing she did say was she thought George was a horse trader betweenWA and India. also whenErnest signed up forWW1 he did so from WA.When overseas last year I went to his grave in Neippe France .He was buried in the front row between two officers and the guide we were with said he must have done something brave as you do not get front row without cause.I obtained his service records from the war memorial in Canberra but they did'nt reveal anything.I'llkeep in touch if I find anything.I've found plenty on Nan's side the Bouchall's
: It has been a family mystery since the late
: 1890's where my great grandfather George
: Robert John Wills went. He had at least six
: children with Susannah BLUNDEN/BOWEN mostly
: in Ballarat Victoria between 1875 to 1892
: when the last child Robert John Wills was
: born. He was said to be a miner and it is
: said he traveled to Western Australia.No
: trace can be found of him. We can find no
: marriage to Susannah.
: immigration record we believe he came from
: Inverness Scotland and Susannah from Queens
: County Ireland. We don't know when George
: died nor when he is buried. We can not even
: find a census with George recorded. He is a
: big mystery. Susannah died in 1909 and her
: death certificate says widow.
: Any help would be great...
