    This family is of interest. I have come across a couple of records stating either Christopher was Patrick Christopher or Elizabeth had another brother called Patrick born between 1836 and 1850.

    http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Westmeath/Mount_Temple/Aghanashanmore/1775689/.

    A DNA match on Ancestry suggested this match may be correct but I haven't been able to find any proof. The DNA match suggested Patrick Woods married Ellen Keegan in Westmeath and had 3 children. Am I clutching??? LOL.

    John Willis was buried in the Rockhampton Cemetery in the Methodist section so she may have just followed him to the Methodist church to get married and was RC all along!!

    John William Applewaite buried South Rockhampton 1911 age 43 father William mother Elizabeth Woods, I guess is the William registered in 1868. Buried RC as well.
    Was Esther his wife? She died young as well and then some babies. Sad.
    Lots of sadness in that cemetery including the labourers/slaves who died in the cane fields, as very young men and no names, just, South Sea Islander.

    Thanks Sue. Yes, someone else told me the same thing about the cemetery. But this is the Applewaite in my tree. Esther was his wife. I'll see if I can find a record of how she died. It might tell us what was happening in the area at the time.

    There seems to be a lot of dysentrey in the South Sea Islander community. Poor things.
