Re: Interpretation

Thanks WilmaM, This is one of those stories that have mixed up data over many years. The wife drowned and her body was not located. Her son of 14 months also drowned and his body was recovered. In the same accident another female (native, no relative) drowned and her body was recovered. The headston...

Re: interpretation of headstone inscriptions

Thanks ninatoo,
That needs checking.
Any little bit of advice is helpful.
Accents can be a real source of trouble if information was passed by word of mouth in the 1850's.
We now have - Boog, Bogue, Bogne and Boag - all possibilities.
Ah- the joys of research.

Re: interpretation of headstone inscriptions

Thank you Russell. A prompt reply. Migrant lists need to be examined yet. There are a number of problems to cope with. Time has mixed up details and she is thought by some to be of Australian Aborigine background! The church of Latter Day Saints db refers to her as Mary Bogne, a valid reason when ha...

Re: Bogne

Thanks Alan, The person to whom the Inscription referred has been known as Bogue in the past. Then I noticed the inscription on their stone, when enlarged, read Bogne and I must say the lady's handwriting on her marriage registration could be interpreted as Bogne! My research is in it's final stages...

Re: Bogne

Thanks for those comments.
The era in question is 1850.
I have noticed that the OCR used by National Library of Australia sometimes interprets the name BOGNE as BOGUE and vice versa.
My query relates to a memorial inscription that is Mary Bogne.

Re: What does "CE" mean after a signature?

Spot on Alan,
I just noticed on my dogtags from the army the initials CE.
No doubt I declared my religion to be "Church of England" upon enlistment .
Two good examples of the importance of understanding the context in which the initials CE were displayed.

Re: What does "CE" mean after a signature?

Hello From Van Diemen's Land, Here is a suggestion: CE was the abbreviation for "Civil Engineer" for Van Diemen's Land in the early days. One John Lee Archer (1791-1852) had the distinction of being appointed to this position from 1826-1838. When work for him ran out he was appointed Police Magistra...
