      • Subject: John William Anderson
      • Address: School House, Owanyilla, Queensland
      • Date: May 1891
      • Found: England

Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find out anything about John (or Jonathan) Wm Anderson at all! The Queensland Historical Records have so many John William or William John Andersons listed that it would be impossible to say which one is him, if indeed any of them are.

On the back of the photo it also says ‘For Father’ and as this photo turned up in England I’m presuming John Wm migrated from the UK somewhere and was sending the photo back to his father.

The parents’ names listed on the Death entries turns up nothing on the IGI either.
