This is the information kindly sent by Carl Matthews; it hasn't been reformatted, as this would be a mammoth task, but hopefully makes sense. All edits are Carl's. Best to cut and paste it as a word document to make sense of it – if you get it formatted nicely, post it back to the forum so...

Re Henry Phelps and Ann Pincott. Henry and Ann only lost Henry Arthur on board the Layton. Esther Ann Phelps is my great-great-great-grandmother. The irony is that in 1893, the measles epidemic hit the Goulburn NSW area and Esther lost two of her grown daughters within a day of each other and...
