My great grandfather, Carl Biber, arrived in Sydney, Australia (aboard the "Gloriana") in July 1855, accompanied by his Aunt, Johanna Gottke. Carl married (1861) in rural Victoria, then settled in Melbourne and raised a family of 11 children. I have found no trace of Aunt, Johanna Gottke since 1855. Can anyone help please?

Hi,
I have done a little reaserch and found the following a burial record of a  Johanna Lousia (Lotilsa) Gottge, perhaps the record was mistyped which unfortunatly happens a lot. The details of burial notice are as follows;

Johanna L GOTTGE, 91 B Asylum C of E Section HH Grave ??
Parents: Fred BIVA & Anna STEIN Reg No 10027
(Melbourne General Cemetery)

As I said a lot of information can be mispelled due to it being record from what someone has heard ( BIVA / BIBER )

This johanna died in 1901 in Hotham, Victoria at the age of 91.

Hope this helps, feel free to ask any questions and ill do my best to help out!

Thanks Katrina, I have now sighted the Benevolent Asylum record of death and this confirms that your info from burial notice is same person - except that father's name is BIBER in their register.
