Hi, Looking for information regarding William FORTUNE, b1825 St Andrews Fife. d,1858, Heathcote, Victoria Australia.
F: John FORTUNE M: Margaret GRAY
I believe we went to California for the gold rush as I have foind him on the 1841 scot census, no on the 1851 scot census, and then on the 1852 californian census. I believe he followed the gold rushes and entered Australia via the schooner SPARTACUS in 1854 at Melbourne. He died in 1858 aged 33 and is buried in the heathcote cemetery.
