      Brian
      I sent you an E-mail a week ago but I do not know if you received such.I have had a few techinical problems with my computor.There were a nomber of E-mails that were left in my outbox.I received an E-mail from you sometime ago,in relation to a query about my late Grandfather Joseph George Dowling,born circa1892 in the city of Liverpool England,The late Joseph George being the son of Irish Immigrant Masterbootmakers,Joseph himself apprently was the product of a very hard upbringing as were so often the case in the nineteenth century and runaway to sea onboard a old Sailingship at the tender age of twelve,Joseph I were told by my late father his eldest son David Ruebeeen Dowling, jumped ship as an illlegal immigrant in Perth Western Australia,from where he was chased by West Australian Police across the Nullabour Plain,to the east coast where he finally setteled in the Capital City of Queensland Brisbane,where he lived out his life.

      Joseph Married a Ruby Johnston the daughter of a Cobb&Co Coachdriver just before World War 1 ,to my knowledge he was one of the original Anzacs who landed at Gappoli in 1915 where he fought the Turks,I beleive he was also a member of the Australian Lighthorse Brigade later on in the first world war.

      After the war he settled down to various jobs around Brisbane,never great jobs but times were difficult with the great depression in the late twenties and early thirties,Joseph and his wife Ruby had five children three of whom lived to adulthood, my father being the eldest David Rueben,the second was Mervyn George,then a girl Oliveen Ruby,Aunt Olive is the only one still alive and is not able to remember much since an accident in 1989.Therefore I have nobody to turn to out here to ask questions about my late Grandfathers life.When you last E-mailed me Brian you mentioned you could look up information on the 1891census if I could find more imformation but I am afraid this is difficult as I am the eldest of the present generation of Dowlingd in this part of the world and have nobody to make enquires with,so unless you can come up with something I have come to a deadend, hoping you willfind something in your resources and reply to my E-mail I remain Yours Sincerly David George Dowling.
