This orphan has been claimed by: Kate Sinclair

My interest is in George's sister Caroline who had a child named John to my great great grandfather John Curtis. She later went on to marry Robert Hall but cannot find anything if she had more children to my gg grandfather or Robert Hall. I cannot find anything of her death or where buried. Apparently George's mother also named Elizabeth came to VDL on the Mellish 1830 with 6 children so think Caroline may have been too old for the orphanage. I would like to find out more of her brothers and sisters and what became of them all.
