    Just my luck!Too late :rolleyes:
    I found the above in the West Briton and Cornwall Advertiser and the lady wanted to make contact with other family members.
    John was a son of Nicholas and Jenifer Cowling but the writer had Jane Cowland.
    She went on to say that John emigrated in 1869 and married Mary in 1871. She was born in Wendron,Cornwall.
    They settled in Eaglehawke,Bendigo,Victoria and raised 7 children.
    The writer went on to say that there are 3 other Clymo families that didn't connect to their Nicholas.
    The address and surname of the letter writer is there but I don't know if I should add it.

    Please don't as they may still be living.

    Thank you. :)

    The lady goes on to say that she is the 4th generation of the family.

    Your letter writer had the name as Jane Cowland as that is what is on John’s death certificate.
