Caroline Gant was born in Ipswich Suffolk England around 1833 to parents William and Lucy Gant. We see Caroline’s parents and siblings names listed on the Convict Indent Report.
Caroline married John Smith 20 Feb 1854 in Launceston Tasmania, they had two children, Samuel and William Smith.
Next Caroline had children with a William Harris, 4 children, Mary Ann and Ann Maria ( only two I have records for). No record of marriage found yet. Birth record of children not found yet. After William Harris drowned, Caroline is with John Stanley or John Coffey and they have three children, John, Harriet and Eliza.
Caroline died 28 Oct 1908 at Stanley, Tasmania and is buried in the Stanley Cemetery.
