Hi Barbara, Don’t know if this is useful, but... Richard and Margaret were witnesses at my forebears wedding. He signed his mark in ‘Chinese' characters, which may help in a search regarding his name, family name and searching through the China side of things. He also had a boarding house in William Street (I think it was on or near the corner of William and Denison), Rockhampton, which should be verifiable from the Rate Books held in the Rockhampton Regional Library. Not certain about his death, but he may have been at Emerald at a later point in time. Best of luck. Cheers JNH. Rockhampton, QLD.
