Hi Janelle! Interested to have you make contact as we both seem to have the same ancestor research going on. My grandmother was Silvina Rowe, who was Mary Ann Wheater's daughter from a second marriage after her first husband had died. I have found a record of M.A. Wheather coming to Australia under her married name of Mary Ann Armstrong at the age of 19 with a 1 year old called Mary M. They came from Yorkshire via London on the SS Duke of Buckingham. They lived in Charters Towers, Nth Qld, where my grandmother was born. My grandmother's maiden name was Rowe and her father was William. She moved to Townsville and later married Henry Herbert Franklin and were married in the CofE Church. They had only one child, my mother, Iris Lillias Franklin who married my father Arnold Albert Weiler. Hope this adds a few people to the jigsaw. Best wishes, Wayne Weiler
