Eliza Augusta Reis, my great-grandmother was born 13 July 1858, 3 Bathurst Street Hobart and died 2 March 1950, in College, Wellington New Zealand. Her father Andrew (Anchell) Reis was born in Gotenberg, Sweden, in 1816, married Sarah Dodge, daughter of Ralph Dodge. When Andrew died 25 Jan 1867, he left behind Sarah with her six children and so she made an application to the Queens Orphanage but on 1 March 1867 was granted govenrment aid of 7/6 a week.
