Dear Toni, You asked if there was more information on the Eather/Heather family of Australia. Well there have been several books published about them by John St. Pierre. The first, Volume 1, deals with the Heather family in England and is an excellent and well researched book. It has recently been updated and re-printed. Judging by the other messages that you have posted on the list, I think that you may belong to the James Line who descend via James Eather (a son of Thomas Eather and Elizabeth Lee - the pioneers) and his wife Mary Ann Hand. The book relating to James has also been published. About four years ago I was fortunate enough to be sent a picture of James, which I published in the Eather Family Newsletter, which has been going for over 26 years. If you would like to know more about the books please contact me off list. Regards, Mildred.
