Family connection to Tate Tin Mine
My 4th great cousin John Remilton/Remillon apparently died here.
John was a nephew of my 4th great grandmother, Bridget Remilton/Remillon.
They all migrated from Kilkenny, Ireland in 1854, arriving in Brisbane on the "Monsoon" with other Remilton's, Mackey's and Clancy ancestors.
John was 49 when he died in 1898, approx 6 years after the Mine had opened up.
All of the Remilton's stayed around Ipswich area until their death, except for my g-g-g-g-grandmother, and her partner Thomas Mackey b.1824, who became a respected gold miner in Cargo, NSW, in the gold rush times, whom one of his daughters also had a son named Thomas Mackey b.1885 in Cargo, who is my paternal great grandfather.
