Hi folks, I have only just become aware of this site. I am a descendant of Thomas and Elizabeth (Betsy) Kirkman who arrived on "Agnes Ewing" with Thomas's uncle, John, his children and his wife, Alice.
I have a fairly comprehensive database of Kirkman relatives in NSW, and have just been meeting several of them.
Perhaps, if Gail Duncan, Jean Williams and Trevor Kirkman can contact me on my email address (email@example.com) I can exchange more info.
I am already in touch with Wayne Gornall and visited him briefly last Saturday morning, much to his surprise!The previous Wednesday, I spent some time with Jenny Olive at Casino, and she had a post-it note with Jean Williams's name on it!
In an earlier message, Trevor mentioned the possibility of haveing a Kirkman reunion.Two of the families that I know already do this, but they are already large close family affairs, such as one with about 100 people.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Cheers, Peter, great grandson of Jane Kirkman, Thomas and Elizabeth's youngest daughter.
