I'm looking for information on the Blackburns who seem to have lived around Gympie from about the late 1800s. Robert Blackburn (parents - William Blackburn and Elizabeth Watson) was born in Ireland about 1855. He married Jemima Case in 1874. Robert was a miner and died in Mt Perry in 1909. Jemima died in 1938 and is buried in Gympie.
Robert and Jemima had 4 children: William Thomas, John (died as an infant), Ethel Mary and Elizabeth Ann (my greatgrandmother). They were all (except John) buried in Gympie at the Two Mile Cemetery. William married Rose Treichel and Ethel married William Vinson. Elizabeth married William Hay.
