OF MY FAMILY IN AUSTRALIA"


Eva Lillian Thomson and Alan James Stillaway.


EVA LILLIAN THOMSON

My mother was born in Queensland — her ancestors came from Denmark in the 1870s.
They settled on a farm in the Bergen-Crows Nest area on the Darling Downs.


ALAN JAMES STILLAWAY

My father came to Australia from England some time prior to 1915. To say he was an enigma is an understatement as you will see from his story.


They had five children: Alan, Ethel, Joyce, John, Robert,
