This orphan has been claimed by: Christine Turner

Jane Gibson is my maternal great grandmother.

She was born about 1859 in Launceston and died in Hobart in 1935.

She married Peter Arvid Nilsson, a Swedish mariner, in 1888  and had 6 children. Oscar Walter Neilson (spelling changes appear to have occurred over time) was my mother's father.
