Does any one have the surname TIMM in their family tree?
My G Grandfather Hermann TIMM and Caroline TIMM left Pommern and arrived on the ship Cheybassa January 1885 with five children Wilhelmina, Fiedbert, Ida, August, and Bertha, The had another children born in Australia, Pauline and Elsie Mary.
They settled in the Rockhampton area. My Grandfather August left Rockhampton (date unknown) and went to Sydney. When he married the witnesses were George and Alice HARBOURNE. Looking for any descendants of this name. I believe that George came from Rockhampton as well.
Any help appreciated.
