Relationship to me:- Great Grandfather. (Maternal)
Johann’s parents were Julius Gunthram Gerlach born in 1830 and Fredericka Pertain.
This photograph of Fredricka, the year of her birth, being 1825 and a record of her death on 15th. June 1915 is the only information available for this branch of the family.
This photograph shows Johann Emil at about age 20. The uniform is that of the Prussian Army.
There is evidence Johann and Anna held a second marriage in Sydney in 1885 under the names John E. Gerlach and Mina Arp. The reason is lost in the past.
Emil J. was born at Sydney, probably Glebe in 1885 and married Elizabeth (Peggy) G. Goodsell at Ryde in 1911. Emil’s death certificate seems to be listed under Ernest Nicholas. Both his parents names are listed correctly and the year was 1973. Peg died in 1974.
Elizabeth I. F. was also born at Glebe N.S.W. in 1889 and died in 1977. In 1916 she married John (Jack) Stanfield at St. Leonards N.S.W.
William A. was born at Glebe N.S.W. in 1893 and married Isabel Hackett in 1923 at Sydney N.S.W. He died in 1981.
His twin brother
Alfred married Lillian Rigg (born 1892) in 1923 at Burwood N.S.W.
Ada E.F. was born in 1894 and sadly passed away in 1895.
In regards to the children of the second marriage
George Royal (always Roy) was born at Newtown N.S.W. in 1902 and in 1929 married Dollina Solomon (1906-1974) and passed away in 1981.
Louisa was born at St. Leonards N.S.W. in 1904 and in 1923 she married James H. Buckton (1904-1979) and died at North Sydney in 1929 aged only 25 years.
