This orphan has been claimed by: Emily Wells

I am researching my ancestry on my father’s side and little orphan, Ellen REID, is my great-grandmother. Ellen eventually left Tasmania and married Albertus (Albert) Poppen Keizer in on 26 March 1881 in New South Wales. Ellen and Albert went on to have eleven (11) children, including my grandmother, Ellen Keizer.
