    Looks great. Obviously a lot of work and outstanding finish. Would be good to type a name in the search function to locate detailed results.

    Jeremiah married Alice Jane Townsend in 28/5/1882 they were involved in the christian bible church and we the first couple married in the new church building services were previously held in her fathers home. this church later became Methodist. Orroroo was refered to back then as Walloway as is it was in the Hundred of Walloway. No rcord was keep of my James Francis as to parents or siblings. Jeremiah siblings were never recored but he did meet one at the train station in orroroo possibly also known as ‘James’. Jeremiah had 3 serviving children and many decendants. alot still living and owning land in the Orrorro and Walloway Districts. We would love it if we can find the missing family ancerstors. marie lock .au

    Was very interested to look at your findings on the Temple family, and having done some research myself (albeit not as thorough as I would like), I am unsure if there is a connection between our namesakes. However if you ancestors were half as slippery as mine appear to be by seemingly avoiding census form and electorial surveys, which I suspect got my lot through the first world war unscathed (because they were not called up) then you too have found this a difficult task!
    However I live in Kent, England, but my Temple origins are I believe in Oxford and Gloucestershire… Good luck with your continued search!
