Conrad Westerweller first married Marie Schull /Schut and had three daughters, namely Mary, Eva & Elizabeth.
He later remarried Catherine Mantel born Buttendorf, Germany, who was the daughter of Jacob, a farmer. From this marriage there were two sons, Jacob & Adam. At the time of Catherine's death, Jacob was 45 years old and his brother Adam 40. On her death certificate it states that she had also had two sons deceased which indicates that she was probably married previously and that these were two sons from a previous marriage.
Conrad Westerweller was born in Germany, and by occupation was a farmer. No records have been found to indicate who his parents were.
Conrad migrated to Australia about 1848, his first home being where Anthony Horden's Store in Sydney was (now Grace Bros). It is recorded that Jacob & Adam came first to Australia and after settling themselves they sent for their parents. (Oral History)
He & his wife Catherine later settled in Gunnedah where
they died and are buried alongside each other in the Old Church
of England Section of the Hunter Street, cemetery, Gunnedah.
I would be interested to hear from anyone who has any information or photographs on any of these families. You can write to me at my <jvbryant at halenet dot com dot au> .
