Thanks for that! There is a bit of new information there. Interesting that Schmidts came to Maryborough on the Reichstag, as did the Carlsens 3 years later. (Children of both married later). Additional info would be welcome.
I have Nes, birth as 1864,Old Ribe, Denmark, but that is not verified. Even so, shipped at 25yrs doesn't seem to fit in.
He married Maria Allen 20/10/1890, so at least the first name is the same.The school info is interesting and fits in OK. Thanks.
The electoral roll entries also fit in OK.
Pleased to get any other info you come across,particularly any link of Minna Leisegang marrying William Sheppard.
