Trove Tuesday – Five Generations

Recently while searching for newspaper photos of Portland, I stumbled across a photo of my 1st cousin 4 x removed,  Amelia Harman with four of her descendants published in the Weekly Times in 1952.  Standing back left is Amelia’s daughter, Elsie May Harman.  Elsie married Herbert Skipworth in 1909 at Heywood.  Back right is Elsie’s daughter Doris Eveline Skipworth.  Doris married Samuel Porter in 1929. Sitting directly in front of her is Doris’ daughter and her daughter Lynette Wilmot.

“No title” Weekly Times (Melbourne, Vic. : 1869 – 1954) 9 April 1952: 42. Web. 19 Jul 2017 <http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article224015421&gt;.

This is a great find because I’ve previously posted a photo I found of a Mrs Bell photographed with her grand-daughter, great-granddaughter and a great-great granddaughter.  I couldn’t be 100% sure the woman below was Amelia, although reasonably convinced, however, the new find confirms Amelia Bell (nee Harman) was the same Mrs Bell I wrote about in Matter of Relativity.

MATTER OF RELATIVITY. (1951, December 14). The West Australian (Perth, WA : 1879 – 1954), p. 8. Retrieved October 9, 2012, from http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article49005300

Amelia was the eldest daughter of Jonathan Harman and Elizabeth Oliver of Byaduk.  She died in 1956 in Portland aged ninety-one.  Her husband Chris Bell predeceased her by twenty-seven years.
