Subject: Lavinia Mary Yeo

Dear Sheila, Just thought I would send you this photo that I found of my GreatGrandmother, Lavinia Mary Yeo, daughter of James Yeo & Mary Michell. You may use it for your site. I have been in contact with Valerie Yeo in Australia, and she has been a great help. I was just wondering if you could tell me which direction to go back further than Thomas Yeo & Mary Elliott?? I have also had a email from Faye Stone, who looks like she is the greatgranddaughter of Ella Lavinia Yeo who married Horace Emerson, I have given her your website address. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks Regards Cheryl

Subject: from australia dear sheila, I am new on family tree searching so i am not up to date with how to do it, but i have been bitten with the bug real bad!! I was born to Joan Emerson, who's mother was Ella Lavinia Yeo. My great grandmother was Dorothea Eliza Green and she married James Yeo son of english born parents James Yeo and Mary Mitchell ( Michell ). As I was adopted as a baby and only have contact with one birth sibling, my info is small. Can you help me with any more info on the Australian born James, my great grandfather. Regards Faye Stone.

Chris is a Doctor in Sydney, Australia

It is me again..I think that we have some great interest here so I should share some information with you that you can share with the other people. Thomas Henry Mitchell Yeo was my grandad and he did marry Elizabeth Rimmer. I never knew him as he died before I was born As a small child I do remember very well the shop which she ran in Clovelly in Sydney.As a young child she would come from Sydney on a train and arrive in Nowra and my parents would go and collect her from there. Bessie died at Forster in 1966. She died from stomach cancer. She was cremated at Beresford in 1966. Her ashes are interred in Rookwood under the family name which is James. She had a library and a gift section with lots of toys which just gave me so many fond memories of her. Her son Laurence Yeo was my dad and was born in 1909. He married Joyce Emily Hood in 1941 at St Thomas's Church Parramatta on the 26th of January.After that they moved to various parts of the state and I was born at Junee in NSW on 12/12/1949. I forget the actual address. My dad and mum moved quite a few times from Junee to Sydney where my dad ran a post office at Westmead.. I had a nurse called "Vicki" and she would take me as a young child to the station and rock me to sleep to the sounds of the trains coming and going. After that we moved to many parts of the state . My dad Laurence Yeo was a dentist.At the age of 19 or so I went into Medicine where I am am today. Sheila is any of what I have just stated is of use.. Mate do not know ..I have heaps more info..does this sort of stuff help you with what you are experptly doing..thanks so much Chris

John Back's comments

(John is researching this for his sister Sharon who is married to Steven Ratelle and many thanks to John for these photographs of Sharon and Steven)

Which reminds me - here is my sister Sharon and her husband Steve Ratelle (Steve is son to Rolland J. Ratelle & Marguarite Deborah Yeo).

THANKS! This is incredible - as is your website - very impressive. Let me know if you want any additional details from this branch. How could I go about getting additional information on William & Ann's descendants? Is one or more of the researchers on your LINKS section a guru on this branch? FYI: a few tidbits .Steve's Wife's name is "Sharon Denise Back" (my sister). They were > > married in 2000 and do not have any children (yet). Steve's Father's name is "Rolland J. Ratelle". Steve has two younger brothers: "Jasson Rolland" (with 1 son) & "Wayne Wilfred" (with 1 son & 1 daughter). Also: Steve's 1st Cousin twice removed is the famous hockey player: "Jean Ratelle" - which is obviously a VERY big deal over here in Canada. Thanks. JB
