101 years ago: Missing Friend Eugene Charles SAMPSON

One hundred and one years ago today, the Sunday Times, Perth advertised for a Broadford man in its Missing Friends column, on page 15S.

Eugene had been farming at Kyneton, which is in the Macedon Ranges in Victoria. That begs the question why they were looking for him in Perth.

This reference was found by searching Trove. Citation reference http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article57750076

Eugene Sampson, Missing Friends. Sunday Times, Perth, 26 January 1913, page 15S

Eugene Sampson, Missing Friends.
Sunday Times, Perth, 26 January 1913, page 15S

Essentially the same advertisement was placed in the Missing Friends column of Otautau Standard and Wallace County Chronicle, 11 March 1913, p2, where it also states it’s his sister who is looking for him. (from Papers Past)

  1. Congratulations on your new blog Pauleen! Very excited to see that is about East Clare immigrants. I have Considines and McMahons from Sixmilebridge. Lateral lines include McGuiness. The Considine siblings emigrated to New South Wales in the mid to late 1830s as free immigrants (well most of them – I’m keeping an open mind on the others!). They settled at Goulburn and later two sisters moved to Wangaratta in Victoria. Looking forward to hearing more abgout your East Clare travels and research. 🙂

    • You were VERY quick of the mark Jenny. Thank you for joining me! I hope that you’ll write something for me about your Considines and McMahons….I don’t want this blog to be all about me or mine…let’s make it collaborative. I’ve found masses of stuff on Trove to add in, but it would be great to have some personal stories. Think about it? Pauleen

      • I will think about it Pauleen. Trouble is I know so little about back home in Ireland and what drove them to emigrate. Can’t even get past the names of the parents. Some very interesting stories to tell about their time in Aus but very few photos.

  2. Hi Can you tell me who the sister was. I am looking a the sampsons from that area and dont have Eugene Charles. I may be able to figure out who he was
