My grandmother Nellie Josephine Rowe (Irvine, nee McPhee), had many brothers and sisters we never knew of. She was a jillaroo and then a housekeeper for many families around Australia. Especially Hawthorn in Melbourne, and Alberton in Gippsland. Her parents Jessie and 'Pop' McPhee lived in Wandiligong until the 1950's and 1960's when they died. All replies will be answered.
I think we are distantly related. Nellie McPhee's father, Robert McPhee, was the brother of my gg grandfather, James McPhee (who married Ellen Attridge). Your grandmother and my great grandmother were first cousins.
I've attached a photo of James and Robert's mother, Janet (Jessie) McPhee (nee McLauchlan) - your gg grandmother.
