Babe-GaileyGo to paperspast.natlib.govt.nz, then Southern Cross, Thurs 8th Jan 1863, page 3 and you'll find the 'Cairngorms' arrival. I'm also a Babe descendant, through Wright's son, Benjamin, whose daughter Muriel was my grandmother. I have some info on the family, feel free to contact me off-forum and we can compare notes. Sue.
