Subject: [AUS-Tas] ROOKE - HUMM
I am trying to find Margaret ROOKE b.c.1836 Ireland who came to Tasmania (
not sure when) and married Henry Humm in 1853.
Supposedly Henry went to NZ in 1860s and Margaret followed in 1866 with
their 3 children and they settled in Taranaki NZ.
We believe the children to be Emily Ruth b.1854, Annie Maria b.? and Henry
I know quite a bit about the whereabouts in NZ but I need any Tasmanian
Hoping someone can help. I have already looked on the Colonian Database.
Thank you so much
