Re: abyssinia st names i recall

My great aunty lived in Abyssinia St. Josie Campbell (Rae). She lived with her mother and father, Sam and Margaret Rae. Sam Rae was to go on the Titanic but he had 3 children die in a week and didn't go. He lived until 1956. Also my dad, Sam Delaney tells me he had cousins who had a little shop in Abyssinia St.
Regards, Ann Delaney

Re: abyssinia st names i recall

Hi Peter, now I am enlightened. Your mother stayed at our house when she came to Australia a few years ago. Its good to communicate with you. If you are on facebook we could swap bits of news and history! Dad is 88 and is just a marvel, goes out and about and has heaps of interests. I think he is in better shape than me!
Nice to hear from you, Ann Delaney, Sammy's daughter
