Hello fellow researchers,
Every now and then I remember that I am supposed to be researching my husband's family as well as my own and I get back to my SCHMALING research even if it is only for a brief time.
My husband's 2xgrt grandparents were Christian Friederick SCHMALING & Caroline MULLER.
Christian Friederick SCHMALING, son of Christian SCHMALING & Charlotte LELLIKI, was born in 1817 in Grabow, Prussia, Germany. He died on 24 July 1896 in Mt.Kent, Qld, Aust.
Emigration detail: 30 January 1862 "Cesar Godeffroy" dep Hamburg 26 10 1861, arrived Moreton bay 30 1 1862. He married Caroline MULLER in Bussow, Prussia, Germany, date not known but probably between 1835-1840.
Their children and descending families settled in the Darling Downs/Toowoomba district.
Their known children are:
