This orphan has been claimed by: Joyce Livermore

Unfortunately there is no story to tell as this little fellow died on 15 April 1843 from Dropsy (inflammation of the lungs) after Scarlet Fever and was buried 17 April 1843 at St. John's Cemetery, New Town. He was the son of my Great-great-grandmother, Catherine Grant, who was transported to Tasmania on the Atwick in 1838.
