Cassilis, Borambil, Bow, Merriwa

Hello Diane, I have discovered your web site and am most interested to know about Cassilis. Around 1868 my paternal Great Grandparents Bridget & Walter Foreman (can be spelt various ways) were in the Cassilis area, and their 1st child Bertha Mary was registered as being born there in 1873, and later Christened 27 Apr 1873 at Wagga Wagga. Walter in later years worked as a labourer & boundary rider on the Robertson & Wagner (Cobb & Co) property at 'Perricoota Station' at Moama. He had also been a Groom according to his wedding certificate in the Penola, South Australia area. I would like to know if there is any link with Cobb & Co at Cassilis, looking at the possibility Walter may have worked for them there before going to Moama?  Any information or ideas are most welcome. Many thanks for your time to read this email. Kind regards Betty Woolley

Editor:  Can anyone forward more information on Walter Foreman, or Cobb & Co in the Cassilis area? If so, please email the editor.
