My name is Angela Smith nee Howes. I was born in Gunnedah NSW in 1971. I've done some research on my family and found this page interesting because of the similarities to my family. My Great grandmother married to become Sarah Howes. She died on my birth date two years before I was born and shares my middle name of Jane.
My mother was Mary Martin and married my father Ken Howes. Dad's grandfather came from England in 1921 age 18, and his relatives are still in England and the U.S.
It would be interesting to find these relatives. My Greatgrandfather's name was George Howes. He settled in Gunnedah N.S.W. Australia in the 1880's. Anyone knowing how to find this information please feel free to e-mail me. Cheers. Angela.
