Joseph Wilson and Sarah (believed nee Thurston) lived in George Street, Sydney where Joseph had a Bootmaker shop following his clearance from convict status.  Joseph and Sarah had 3 children, John, Louisa Anna (my Great Grandmother after she married William John Horne at Bibbenluke (near Bombala, NSW)and Sarah Ann who married in the same area.  Would love to hear from any descendant re Joseph’s death/burial may have taken place. Also the whereabouts of their son John?  Thank you for any information.  Anne Chapman
