we are confused..... how you got/get...thelmas dad being born in Victoria????....because he was sposed to of been of german descent we got told by Dawn , I know...a story...but she had german medals of war etc and my hubby saw them.But a attached family member hocked them after Dawn died. that he came here to escape the war,and at stime interned at camp pell now royal park vic,along with unkwn f Patterson nee brown,thelmas mum.Dawns freind vals,parents we're there too.And the family name was changed to Patterson,Dawn had proof of this apparently and told and showed my husband many yrs ago,but he can't recall much..as it was along time ago.Dawn stayed with her gma Patterson nee brown until she met my hubbys dad,at age 17..George James Overton who died in 1991 & is buried at Donald,vic.Dawn had cervical cancer and died in 1989 &is buried at wbool cemetery.Dawns daughter is also interned at wbool Alice Ellen Lorraine Benson nee Overton,Alice died in a car accident.Dawn had 14 kids in total but are not all biologically overtons.Even despite bearing the surname.As for Burnside,im in ctact with one lot of Burnside family,who think we might be connected,but not sure atm...they're said to be related to Burnside apparently..they say they are related to two Burnside families..and one whom I speak to who's a priestly,his mum was Matilda Burnside..well he said they'd heard the same story from his ggp about a Russell being run down....damn this is confusing!!!!....I will have to tell my hubby what you guys have found.
