Thanks for your message, Colin. Our McAskills arrived in Sydney on the ship "Ontario" on the 15th December 1852. In my search to try and find one of his sons, who seems to have left the family once he grew up led me to look at the McAskills in South Australia and at one time I thought that I had found him as a lot of the names are the same. The McAskills are actually my wifes family. Regards Lynn Anderson.
