Trove Tuesday – Joseph and John Whimpey

In past Trove Tuesday posts, I have featured articles about my 2x great grandfather Joseph Whimpey, and his brother John Whimpey, who came to Australia in 1841, with their wives.  This week, I am featuring their death notices.

John died first, in October 1895.
