Theo is my grandfather. (small world).Theo's farm was called 'Paroo' - named after the Paroo River where he was born.I grew up in Coonabarabran and came to Sydney in 1986.Mum still lives there.The 'family farm' is still owned by the family (my uncles family).Theo married May Bridget Redden (another old faimly from the area).I know bits and pieces about the direct line of the Nies's but nothing of Theo's brothers and sisters.Roland died as a child in either Bourke or somewhere on the Qld border.Lilly married a Knight and had one child Tom.Edward left Coona in the 1930's, I met his son at a Redden family reunion (Theo insisted that he should be there (?) (I think).I don't know anything of his children. Edie never married but lived in Strathfield and adopted Mary.
Theo's full name is Theodore Marshall Nies (Marshall was the surname of his mother).He died in 1987 aged 96yrs and is buried in Coonabarabran. Theo & May had 3 children Patrick (my father), Margaret and Bruce.
