I have letters from William Plummer who immigrated to Geelong in Jan
1857 on ship _Arabian_. His wife's name was Ann and daughter Margaret
born in 1850. Ann's maiden name may have been Adams. They married in
1854 in England. William, born in 1829, was a sawyer by profession.
Although the family settled in Geelong, William may have spent some time
in Melbourne looking for work. The letters are to his brother Henry
Plummer who is one of my ancestors.
A Google search leading me to Lethbridge Cemetary makes me think that
Margaret married a McGillivray. Does anyone know if this is the same
Margaret and if she had other siblings? I have looked through Eric
McGillivray's book, _The Heritage of Lethbridge_ which discusses the
McGillivray name at length, but very little on Plummer.
Any information or suggestions would be most appreciated.
