Oh wow, a Cheeseman! My grandmother's (Florence Rebecca Trowbridge) sister - Edith Louisa Trowbridge married Edwin George Cheeseman. I have a photo of their 4 children, also of Robert & Sophia. Sophia was born 1867 in Summertown, died 19.3.1902 in North Adelaide and buried at West Tce Cemetery. My cousin told me that she died of cancer. Robert Trowbridge travelled with the family and it seems his main abode was a tent (these are stories told through my grandmother). At one stage he left them all in a tent somewhere and my grandma had to look after her siblings. Just a bit of trivia there. Did you have any luck with details of Eva May Trowbridge? I only have her birth date and nothing else.
Hi Wayne, As there are no recent comments not sure if you are still here. I have just joined and see that you are related to the same family as myself. My great grandmother was Sophia Louisa Wilhelmina Aufderheide (Trowbridge). Would love to be in contact with you.
Hi Wayne-Thanks for answering me so soon- I do have both of the links you sent me about my gr.grandpa George Hranka- I got some more info from Tom Vadjik , too...but I can't find out anything about what happened to George after he got hurt--the family in Kuselov never found out anything about George, either. George was Tom's Gr.Grandpa too---He's the one who told me about George-- I never even knew my Grandma's parents names before Tom got in touch with me !!! How can I see a copy of the 1930 Census you talked about ??
I did find a Hranka in another state, but it seemed it was not the one I was looking for-------- talk to you again ------- Nancy Cole

LOL Wayne - thought I was in trouble there in the first instance I noticed you sent me a comment.
Send me the information to the email address I left for Heather and I will get back to you. I do have a register for Ballarat but not personally worked on that cemetery.
The name BATTEN does not ring a bell but I still have thousands and thousands of photos yet to be indexed
Sometimes there is no other option than to purchase the death certificate - were are you located ?
Thank you for all the nice complements about my site. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit. As for Finest, think I have a lead for parents. I am working on it now. Will post more information this weekend when I get it all put together.
