Hi, Kellie,
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.
Cheers
Bob

I'm confused with the name changes so fill me in on rjhbob2@gmail.com.
My connection to the Allens is tenuous as it is only through Maria Allen and Nes Schmidt who are related to my daughter-in-law, a Bonning. I just happen to do the family history for everyone.
I'd prefer to communicate by e-mail as I rarely check messages on ancestry and I think it is almost expired now.
Cheers
Bob
