Hello Kathleen, I'm not sure what you may already have on the family but I could do a check of the local papers for obituaries if you don't already have that info. I note in our pioneer register that an Andrew Boyle has listed the Armstrong and Graham families. Also interested to see they came from Ballintarson. I believe one of our members was looking for a property by that name just west of Terang...maybe a family property??? If you want me to do some research for you, you will need to let me know what you already have so I don't spend time doubling up on research. When are you going to Ireland? I have a commitment that will take up most of January but will be able to do research after that for you if you so desire. We have a research fee of $20.00 if you want me to proceed. Perhaps you could email me at: historysociety04@hotmail.com It's easier than using messanger I find.

Sounds like an exciting time ahead Kathleen.

My gggf William Spall was on Yallock station with William Hamilton and Charles Grayland about 1844-1848. He then moved to Keayang (Keeyong) station with Thomas Ayres, Thomas Richardson, Charles Grayland and William Overend until at least the mid 1850s.
Does anyone have any information about what happened to William Hamilton?
I am also interested in any information about Yallock or Keayang stations. Where were the station buildings located? Do any still exist? Any documents that shed light on life on those stations?
Thank you for any help you can provide.

Hello Charlie, Good to hear from you. Firstly, are you related to the Clark/e that lived at Garvoc many years ago? We have some documentation on Yallock and Keayang stations but I would have to look into William Hamilton. Are you related to him as well? I won't be able to do much research for a few weeks due to family commitments but if you would like me to find out more I will be happy to do so. We have a research fee of $20.00 if you want me to look this up for you. Alternatively, when we are open again in 2020 you may like to visit our museum on the 3rd Sunday from 1-4pm and see what we may have that will be of interest. Regards, Margaret McIntosh, Research Officer
