I am replying to your message to Graham Gooch. As Graham is my third cousin, you would also be my third cousin. Graham's great grandfather was Thomas Walter Gooch, brother of Maria Amelia Gooch, and mine was Edward Barwon Gooch, also Maria Amelia's brother.
I was disappointed to read on the message board that you don't have any family photos as I am very keen to find any that I can. I don't know if Graham has contacted you but we both have one that we think is Maria Amelia, which Graham found somewhere on Ancestry. Are you aware of it? I have one of Edward Hayes Talbot taken from a composite photo of pioneers of Proserpine (I think).
My sister and I have written a book about our Queensland ancestors and have mentioned Maria Amelia and Edward Talbot. We cover Philip Hayes Talbot, Thomas Gooch and Edward Barwon Gooch much more fully as they are our direct ancestors. At present we are seeking a publisher.
Let me know if you need either of the photos that I have mentioned. I would love to hear if you have discovered much about Edward and Maria Amelia or about their parents, or perhaps you have family stories that have been handed down.
