Still looking at info on the Nikkelsen family in Warracknabea.
George was my GGrandfather on my mother’s side – his wife Zibiah died while giving birth to twins on 01/10/1890
The children were all told that their mother and the babies died during the birth but records I have show that Zibiah died 1st Oct 1890
Ethel Jane died 28th Oct 1890
Norman Arthur Young Nikkelsen died in 1891
Want to find out if the children were left at the hospital or where they were when they died – Ethel Jane was born 30/09/1890 and Norman was born 01/10/1890.
Seems Ethel Jane lived for a month and Norman lived for about 6 months??? Also the name “Norman Arthur Young Nikkelsen” does not seem to fit this family as all other children are named after relatives.
Could he have been fostered or adopted?
George Olas Nikkelsen buried at Warracknabeal Cemetry -
Some years ago someone told me there was also a grave their in the name of Mikkelsen from Sweden (may be related – spelt wrong) would like to visit this grave site as well
Can anyone confirm any of this and suggest any avenues for me to contact - have already sent email to Warracknabeal Historical Society.
