Kindness of Nancy
Not sure whether Nancy received your message as it came to me.
I provided this info and a few photos below to her when we were in the States earlier in the year, but she may not have passed it on to the members of your group.
To clarify, the link to William Clarke Quantrill may be a tenuous one, but I have a suspicion we are related to him, albeit distantly.
So is it Quantrill, Quantrell or Quantrelle ?
Although I was born in Wangaratta, Victoria Australia and grew up in Mitcham which is in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, my family is firmly linked to the South West. Sally & I have lived in Pomborneit Nth, Carpendeit, Terang and now Warrnambool. Our work has also taken us to Timboon, Camperdown, Noorat, Gnotuk, Bookaar, Hamilton, Portland and many other places around the Region.
Ironically Dad's family colourings are of the fairer kind - he was blonde !! This explains why I have two sisters with blonde and auburn hair and fair skin.
I believe Josh's European look, [ie tall dark and handsome] actually comes from the Clodd and my Mother's side of the family.[Darch] Mum's parent's immigrated from the UK in the 1920s, however Mum also has relatives in Italy. Her father Harold, Josh, an Italian relative and I all have a striking resemblance.....although Josh now has squarer Clodd hair-line, not the receding Quantrelle, which is an improvement !!
Feel free to share the information with your fellow Quantrill’s Guerillas supporters. (I can send it as a one page .pdf if that helps) ;-)
I trust that assists.
