Hi John, just found your post about your George and yes you are correct about George being the brother of my 4thgrandfather, William who joined the Mormons and died in Provo Valley Utah USA in 1877 and his wife Jane in 1881.
Their son James and his wife Sophia and their two eldest children immigrated to Australia in 1857 after his parents left for the USA. I have done extensive research on my Australian line but have been out of touch with my genealogy after my late husband had astroke and I was his full-time carer. Time for me now to get back into doing some more research and thank you for the additional information.
