Evidence obtained from Mr. Albert John Abel of Tamworth, NSW, in conjunction with data from the Genealogical Society of Queensland indicate that Rosina Abel (Johanna Rosine Abel) was the daughter of my 3rd great-grandmother, Katharine Sophie Abel, both of whom immigrated to Qld. in 1862 ex-Sindringen, Württemberg, in the company of another daughter, Johanna Christiana Abel, and Katharine Sophie's granddaughter, Katharina Magdalena Rudolph (my great-grandaunt) aboard the ship La Rochelle sailing out of Hamburg. They were evidently drawn to Qld. owing to the fact that Katharine Sophie's son, Christian Philipp Abel, had already established himself there seven years earlier.
I would appreciate very much corresponding with you with respect to all of the above and possibly much more. I look very forward to your e-mail response.
