My great grandfather was also Heinrich Christian BACKHAUS. His son,Hugo Oscar August BACKHAUS, was my grandfather and my father, who passed away in 1999, was Geoffrey Lennox BACKHAUS.Information I have on Heinrich is that he was born in 1860 in Gotha and married in Leina in 1885 to Bertha Augusta Clara SCHIECK.He died on 19 January 1926at Mundoo, Innisfail.
I am the eldest daughter of Geoff, am married to Mervyn Tickle and now live in Bowen NQ.
