As you're 'doing some work on the Rowland family' I'd be very
grateful if you could keep an eye out for:
Alice Emily ROWLAND (b. ca 1857), who married Daniel McMillan (b. ca
1846), a clothier, in Christ Church, Mutwai, Colombo on 7 Dec 1876.
Malcolm Jansze found this information for me some years ago...through
this list (thanks again, Malcolm)
We've since found out a little about Daniel McMillan (largely through
the Ferguson Directories) ...he ran a tailor's establishment in
Colombo, spent some time working as a cutter for Cargills, died
around the turn of the century, and his widow, Alice Emily lived in
various addresses in Colombo before moving to Nurawa Eliya, which was
her address in 1915, when her son Sydney joined the AIF.
But we know nothing of her origins, nor of Daniel McMillan's.
Repeated faxes, emails and letters to the Sri Lanka authorities over
the years have been unanswered, and any thing you can turn up in your
research into the Rowland family which might be a connection would be
of great help to my friend Doug McMillan, the only surviving grandson
of Daniel and Alice Emily.
