Re: Scantlebury, Switzer connection. Devon to Australia mid 1800's
I have a picture of William Scantlebury's grave from The Columbia California Cemetery.It states that William was born in Cornwall, Eng. Dec 1 1840 and Died in Murphys California February 12, 1904.
I know this is not who you are looking for but it seems to be quite a coincedence that your Scantlebury and this one are close in age and from the same area if I read your post correctly.
