Z is for Zunker and time for ZZZ's #AtoZChallenge2016

My theme for the AtoZChallenge is exploring the Walker family . Thinking about the family I realised that they were around in Mackay, Queensland in the early days of settlement so I have decided to discover some snippets of early Mackay as it relates to this family and others in my family tree. I hope you enjoy the journey.




Z is for Zunker and time for some ZZZ's.

Daisy Louisa Harvison, my 2nd cousin twice removed, was the eldest child of James Harvison and Florence Elizabeth Walker. Daisy was born in Walkerston the 3rd of August 1895 and married Wilhelm August Carl Zunker on the 9th June 1926 probably in Mackay but perhaps in Walkerston. Daisy died on the 18th October 1983 in Mackay and I have not yet tracked down her burial.

I wonder if Daisy was called after her cousin Daisy Elizabeth Antoney who was born in North Eton on the 18th February 1884.

Now for some ZZZ's as the April A to ZChallenge is over so I can relax, read some blog posts of other bloggers and sleep in on Sunday morning.

  1. I'm impressed that you could do A-Z based on one family line. This year I did my own story, but in the past I wrote about whoever I could find in my database. Now I'm wondering if I really could focus on just one line. Anyway, congratulations on surviving A-Z and furthering your family research.
