MONARO PIONEERS now on Facebook


I can assure you that every Tree will have at least one great uncle Henry, who was born as Henry, married as Charles and died as Frederick!

And at least one great aunt Susannah who was born 1860 and gave her age as 21yo when she married in 1879, then aged 1? year on the births of all her children, who were all born 2 years apart. Somehow managing to be 33yo when she died in 1900!

All Trees have a black sheep and a hero.

The naughty boy who sows his seed like it was harvest season 12 months of the year and the bad girl that wants to ‘try’ a few husbands, even when they are someone else’s.

The son who stays home to run the farm so that mum and dad can spend their aged years relaxing, instead of venturing off to make his own life.

The daughter who became the ‘mother and carer’ of her younger siblings after the death of a parent(s) and ended up too old to marry by the time her siblings had grown.

It is guaranteed that every Tree will have that one person who disappears from the face of the earth and that one person who pops up in the family aged 50yo, that you have never heard of before.

Guaranteed there will be that one person you’d rather leave off your Tree and that one person whose life story will break your heart.

Doing your Family Tree is not a hobby anymore, it’s an adventure.

A trip back in time with more twists and turns and up and downs than a roller coaster ride.

It can be joyful, enlightening, entertaining and downright frustrating, all in the first 20 minutes!

Especially when you spend years making sure you have everything correct, only to find that the Henry you have traced and followed, isn’t your Henry! Your Henry was the fellow who changed his name to Frederick.

Years ago it took decades to build a Family Tree.

Questioning elderly family members and friends, trips to the library, scouring through old newspapers and documents, visiting cemeteries miles away and walking headstone by headstone taking notes, thousands of pieces of paper with notes scribbled on them and if you were really lucky trips to the major libraries and/or archives where you would go like crazy trying to find and copy everything as fast as you could, before it was time to drive all the way home again.

I remember saving the envelopes that letters came in (remember them...letters?) and I’d write surnames on them in big black texta and file them all alphabetically in shoeboxes. Then every time I found a “maybe” I’d write down the details and file it (in the envelope in the shoebox).

My, haven’t times changed!

Now I just click a button and it saves everything for me.

My name is Kellie and if you have ever used the Ancestry Message Boards, you will have seen me there as Sad_Mushroom.  

On the Message Boards, you will also notice there are a few other researchers/helpers and it is ‘us’ (this little group of researchers/helpers) who maintain and keep the Australian Message Boards running.

As of two weeks ago, those researchers/helpers from the Message Boards have joined the Monaro Pioneers Project.

Our aim is to double check and cross reference the profiles contained in the Pioneer section of the database, confirming data, connecting the family lines and adding the pioneers which have been overlooked.

Our work will not interfere with the help and support that other members of MP provide, so please keep up the good work and keep sending in your suggestions and additions.

The Monaro History is amazing!

The Monaro area history holds some of the worst convicts and criminals, some of the biggest stories of rags to riches, riches to rags and even some of the worlds most talked about events.

The Monaro region has seen some of the strongest and most determined women of the times and some of the bravest and most hardworking men the world has seen.

Slowly and as time permits, many of those events will be added to the MP database.

The other good thing is, the MP now has its own little research team to assist with brick walls and queries.

This is only for ancestors of the Eden/Monaro area and lines connected to the Monaro.

You can send queries to the newsletter or to me directly Kellie@monaropioneers.com

Please state what you are needing help with and link to the ‘Person ID’ of the profile you are seeking help with.

Eg. Looking to find the death of John JONES I298657 (The Person ID is listed on each profile)

I’d like to thank the ‘team’ for agreeing to join and help with the MP database.

A very big WELCOME to Karin, Rhonda, and Fryerning and a very big THANK YOU to you all.

Also, a Thank You to Mary, (who was already a member of MP) for agreeing to assist as well,  as she is a very important part of our ‘team’.

Until next month…...Kellie

Proposed Change: Peden, Archibald (I18561)
Tree: SE NSW Pioneers and Settlers

Description:  Archibald Peden, Ltat 76.
 In the decease of Mr. Archibald Peden, J.P., on Wednesday last, at his residence, Bumbalong, Colinton, not only his wide circle of family connections and his immediate neighbors, but the entire community have sustained an irreparable loss. A citizen of his sterling qualities and worth must not be permitted to pass from the activities of life and enter that "bourne whence no traveller returns " without a befitting record of his career. Hence we felt, when writing the brief notice of his decease as it appeared in the AGE of Friday last, that something more would be expected by our readers than that, and that as publicists we owed it to his memory to place on record some further particulars. These we now give. The deceased gentleman became a resident of these parts nearly 60 years ago, and shortly after his arrival married Jane, eldest daughter of that grand old pioneer who settled at Booroomba back in the early day's of Queanbeyan's history-the late Mr. Charles McKeahnie, father of the enterprising Mr. C. H. McKeahnie, who has made Booroomba famous for its breed of high-class Hereford cattle. After his marriage, in 1871, Mr. Peden settled down at Bumbalong, which he then held under a Crown occupation licence. Those who knew Bumbalong in those far-off days, knew it as one of the most mountainous, rugged, and difficult of working, as a grazing area, amongst the holdings west of the Murrumbidgee River. Indeed, to-day it maintains much of its roughest features, vast as have been the improvements ac complished by its heroic and enterprising occupant. No man could have been better fitted to cope with Nature's obstacles such as existed on Bumbalong holding than the subject of these memorials. His was a notable example of obedience to the Divine command: " Replenish the earth and subdue it." To his efforts and enterprize what was at the time he took it up a comparatively worthless site, held under ren tal from the Crown, is now mainly a highly improved freehold property of considerable monetary value. He had indeed, by untiring and herculean efforts, made "the wilderness and solitary place " a source of wealthy productiveness. Not only so, it was here he reared his family of sturdy sons and bonnie daughters, whose mother was not only a mother of mothers to her children, but a helpmate of the very first water to her indefatigable hus band. The forty years and more spent at Bumbalong found our hero in the " sere and yellow leaf." Age brought its accompanying infirmities-heart trouble and the like. For his ailment Mr. Peden was treated for a time by Dr. Blackburn in his private hospital in Sydney. He ultimately returned to Bumbalong relieved, but not cured; for the best of medical skill can not effectively repair a worn-out heart. And so, it soon became evident that the end of this brave old settler was drawing near. Dr. Blackall, of Queanbeyan, was in frequent attendance, and so was his spiritual counsellor, the Rev. D. Finlayson, and in the " wee small hours " of Wednesday morning last, the loving watchers by the death-bed saw Archibald Peden end a life in perfect harmony with its run-out  years. 
Of the family brought up at Bumbalong, Charles, the eldest, has passed away; George resides and Gunnedah; and Charles A. at Well Station ; one daughter (Sylvia) is the wife Mr. Will Southwell, of Junee; another (Edith) the wife of a Mr. Lord, of the same place; and the third, Grace, remains at home with her widowed mother. In many capacities the deceased gentleman served his day and generation; for many years he held the Commission of the Peace, being the oldest magistrate of the Michelago bench; in private life there are many who can bear record to his generous and sympathetic nature. Mr. Peden was a successful sheep-breeder, and his wool clips have commanded tip top values. Except to his immediate relatives and neighbors, the passing away of Mr. Peden was not, up to the time of the burial, generally known, and his funeral taking place on the following day militated against the numbers who would only have felt it to be their duty to testify their esteem for the deceased by attending his funeral obsequies. His remains arrived in Queanbeyan on Thursday afternoon, having been brought on per motor car, under the directorship of Mr. Harry Lazarus. Still, the cortege was fairly numerous. The burial rites were impressively conducted by the Rev. D. Finlayson, of St. Stephen's Presbyterian Church, of which Mr. Peden was a consistent and exemplary member. To his widow and other members of the deceased gentleman's family and family connections messages of condolence have been numerously sent, and they all may rest assured that the sympathy of the entire district goes out to them. The present generation will not readily forget Archibald Peden, of Bumbalong.

Hi Ian

Here is some extra information you could add into the MP Database regarding Blakeney Howard TAPPER and his wife Jessie TAPPER (nee McMAHON).

NSW BDM 28691/1917 Shows birth John W Dunn. Father Samuel Mother Sarah J.There is no registration of John W Thomas.
Samuel T Thomas born 25Jun1884 two months after father Samuel died in wagon accident. Mother Catherine Hannah Thomas (nee Smith)- in 1885 widow married John Elvidge Dunn and Samuel T raised as a Dunn together with siblings. In 1908 Samuel Thomas known as Dunn marries Sarah Jane Thomas (daughter James & Emma Thomas (nee Middleton). Prior to marriage Sarah Jane has three children father unknown and one father Dave Collison. Following marriage Samuel and Sarah Jane are registered as parents of Violet 1909; Harold 1911; Percy 1914; John Wallace 1917. In Samuel's obituary he is noted as survived by Percy 14 and John 8. The report may have John's age incorrect (John W would have been 11 at time of father s death). Samuel enlisted in 1st AIF as John Casey. In 1917 Sarah Jane Dunn wrote to defence claiming John Casey was in fact Samuel Dunn. Subsequently 1884 Pte John Casey was re-identified as 1884 Pte Samuel Thomas (not Dunn). Samuel embarked for France in June 1916 so the paternity of John W Dunn, while noted as Samuel, is questionable given John W's birth date  of 15 July 1917. If interested copies of above records are available for perusal.     Thanks for your great work in maintaining this massive database !! Regards George Thomas

The one missing is:

Boyd Thomas TAPPER  born 5 June Candelo, NSW,  died 15 October 1994 (place unknown at this stage). Boyd was married to Teresa Catherine Bradney in 1944 in Newtown Sydney ( NSW Marriage Reg 4365/1944). I have no details of her birth or death.

There are also some changes that you could make to some of the other children;

a) Eunice J(oy) TAPPER d 28 August 1907;

Proposed Change: McTernan, Patrick (I109576)
Tree: SE NSW Pioneers and Settlers

Description: cause of death: cancer

YET another sad sequel is added to the long list of sad events of the year - the death of Mr. Patrick McTiernan of "Hill Top" Urila. The sad news of the demise of this old resident of the district will be received by every one who knew him with the utmost regret. Mr. McTiernan's death was not sudden, but was brought about by a long,
painful, and lingering illness, to which he succumbed at half-past one o'clock on Thursday afternoon. The cause of his death was that incurable disease - cancer. He had of late, taken every precaution in order to prolong his life, never sparing expense in the least, and being attended upon by the highest qualified practitioners. During the year Mr. McTiernan visited Sydney twice in order to procure relief, and was for a time in a Sydney hospital, but despite the diligent care of his professional attendants the end came at last. The cancer is said to have become more acute and had taken root in the stomach. The deceased was an old and highly respected resident of the district in which he resided, held in high esteem by all who knew him, and one who was in ever readiness to offer a helping hand to any in need. The " Hill Top" property is very valuable of which Mr. McTiernan was exceptionally proud.
Deceased leaves many relations throughout these districts. Mr Barney McTiernan, who contested the Eden- Monaro last Federal election is a brother. He also leaves a widow and seven children - 4 sons, and 3 daughters, four of which are grown up. Mrs McTiernan is a sister of Mr P. Harrold, of Cootamundra, who was once a large land owner  and is highly respected. General sympathy is felt for the bereaved widow and family. The funeral announcement appears elsewhere in to-day's issue.
