Hi everyone I am back after a long absence. Health Issues and other priorities have kept me away from my favourite hobby. I will be updating this site very shortly.

It is a while since I received and new information. If anyone in your family was involved in this interesting story, please get in touch and share your story and pictures with us.

OK. After a long problem with arthritis, a broken leg. a broken finger and torn ligaments in my knee  I am back fighting fit.

I am pleased to report that I have had an email from James (Jake) Robison in Australia. He is a descendant of Edwin Jewell, Joseph Jewells brother and co mining partner prior to Joseph sailing on the ill fated General grant.

Along with a lot of other information (which I am processing right now) he gave me some very pleasing news.

About three years ago he had repair and maintenance carried out on both Joseph's and Edwin's tombs. This included mending a broken rail, securing the headstone and dressing with new marble chipping  

I include a photograph below of the site following the repairs. These were taken a few weeks ago whilst Jake was fishing along the Loddon river.

I am sure all Jewell descendants would join me in thanking him for this excellent contribution to preserving our family history.

I always reply to messages

Thank you Philip
