Hi Loisb

I have your John marrying Elizabeth Gillies in 1877 (7 children) and Jane Gleed in 1887 (3 children), John dying on 19 May 1923 in Kyneton.

William and Mary had 9 children (we have most of their birth and death years and childrens names), all migrated to Aust (on the Conway and the Africa) except 1, Mary who had measles and was not allowed to travel, she stayed in Ireland, d.1893 Castlefin.

We also have 1 photo of Mary Gillis, Jane Beattie and Jessie McDonald, her daughter Elsie and her daughter Thelma.

I look forward to any further details that you may have.

Hi Brian,

Photos attached. It was taken about a year or so before Mary's death in 1908 so she would have been about 87.

A second photo has since come into my hands and is believed to be William and Mary Beattie.

We have very little details about Mary or her family so any information/photos would be greatfully received.

Hi Brian

Interestingly we had a portion of this photo - but believed it to be either Mary Gillies but more probably of Elizabeth Beaty (Moffitt) - wife of John Beaty

I've also attached another photo of what we believed were John and Elizabeth Beaty

hi all
The photo's are of Elizabeth [ nee Moffitt ] and John Beaty my Great grandparents. There is no doubt of this, the original photo hung in the hall of my grandfathers home .
I believe the photo Ricky posted of the couple are William Beattie and Mary Gillis. You can see by the photo of the 5 generations that Mary was a petite small lady. Elizabeth on the other hand was a much larger lady.

Hi Loisb
I alway suspected that the photo was of Elizabeth Beaty, so the original hung at "pinewood" Diggers Rest, a cousin found some photos at "glencoe" Toolern Vale and i'am hoping to fly over soon to look at them.

Hi Brian,
Yes it was at "Pinewood", my cousin has one also my elder brother.
There was also one at "Glencoe" near the fireplace in the lounge. Don't know what happened to it when the place was sold, I expect Ken may still have it.
We may be able to help each other with information.

Hi Brian,
Aonother member of this family has joined in with information. I also had holidays at Glencoe with my farther, keith james beaty my mother and 2 sisters.I also remember the photo over fireplace at glencoe. My middle name is nethery and always asked my farther why he did that to me, he told me it was a family surname. Years ago the Beatty, Beaty,Beattie clan had a big family reunion at gisbourne, I went along with my Aunt, Jean (beaty) Wamsteker and cousin Robyn Beaty and her mother Dorothy. That weekend we also went to glencoe to see Ken. Property is sold, Ken living in house in Toolern vale. Did marry and cousin robyn does not know where contents of house went.we went to glencoe after christmas every year for a few years.taught to ride by george i also have photos of our times at glencoe. my farther and his cousins were very close. margaretb

Hi Margaret,
Good to hear from you, i checked out the real estate on Glencoe there was photos of the lounge room in which you could see in the back ground the photo of Elizabeth Beaty.
So you father is Keith is Lois you sister ? or have l got it wrong.
The Beaty, Beatty & Beattie can be quite confusing
i have a newspaper death notice of a Nethery passing away at "Pinewood"

Hi Brian,

The Harkness family also had a lot of memorabilia about the family, cuttings from newspapers etc. Their estate was left to neice, after family reunion I went to visit with them before I came home, he was very interesting to talk to, came often to Glencoe when we were visiting on holidays.Yes, my aunt talked about "Rocklands" and how severe Elizabeth was as a Grandmother,the photo I have of her does indicate that. I do remember that Glencoe had a great collection of china that would now be considered antique, but I think now disposed of.We also visited Farther's Aunt Maude Martin, who was a spinster, and enjoyed the visits.She had lots of paintings she had done and
each visit let us choose one. There was a sundial in the garden that always interested us and also a beautiful grandfather clock. When I visited the Harkness's they were in possession of the grandfather clock and the sundial.
