Robert Tompkins is the father of my paternal grandmother, Florence Amelia O'Shea,  (aka Anna Maria ) - nee Tompkins.

Florence, (1890 - 1930) married Patrick O'Shea in Boggabri, in 1908. They had 3 children; Keith, Jesse, & Norman.

Robert is buried in the Brewarrina cemetery. I would like to know more of his marriage details, ancestry & other descendants; - their places of birth, death, ... & any items that can assist me in research into my family history.

My father, Norman Patrick O'Shea, believed his mother's maiden name was Martin. My research, begun after his death, has proved that his belief is incorrect. This misconception of his is a source of mystery to me.

Hi. I’m looking for any information about a Nelson Smith born in about 1850s. He was born and lived sometime in Nymagee then with his mother Sarah withers who married Samual McClelland. Sarah left Samual McClelland and had Nelson then Marr Henry Dickinson Smith and had quite a few more children. Sarah left Henry leaving all her children only keeping Nelson moving to Narromine and lived with Francis Grainger the Public School Headmaster. 

We believe Nelson is not a McClelland nor a Smith, so have no idea his surname to look up a birth certificate, as we can’t find his anywhere. We have some certificate s for some of his half siblings and Nelson’s father is stated unknown.

Is there anyone know or are there any records regarding my grandfather Nelson Smith.
