Bill added a note to his
email to us...
I believe the original
diary is in the library of Monash University in Melbourne. The attached
was transcribed some years ago by a very bad typist. I have attempted to
correct spelling etc. but here and there are some words which defy me!
My great grandfather
followed his sweetheart Margaret Morrison out from Cawdor and they were
married in Victoria, Australia. Her parents had emigrated with almost all
of their children and around 1900 several of their children moved with
their families to New Zealand. My great grandparents also crossed the
Tasman sea at the end of their lives, and they are buried in the old
cemetery in Bluff where I was born.
Thatís a bit of background
