Pasks of Cooma, New South Wales, Australia

This information relates to an Australian family, currently unconnected to a main branch.

Colleen Willis has provided some information about Charles and George Pask, who are possibly brothers. They lived in Cooma, New South Wales, Australia.

Colleen writes:

I found two deaths to [people who listed their ] parents John and Harriett, one is the Charles who married Catherine McMullen, the other is George, I think they must be brothers, they were both in Cooma New South Wales, but Charles had
married Catherine in Adelaide 1858, and George married Hannah Goddard in 1897 in Cooma. Charles died in 1899 and George died in 1942. There is an excellent web site on the Monaro Pioneers, (which includes Cooma) and I have put a request on that for any descendants. Charles was a police constable there, he was appointed 1863, he is listed on an index as police in 1872.

In an earlier e-mail, Colleen provided information on the four children born to Catherine & Charles.

I have searched the database, but did not find a likely match. I have this information and hopefully more information will come to light. This will be included in the next website update.

Many thanks to Colleen for her relentless research of the Pasks of Australia.
