From Debra Talbot, Australia
A Lafranchi reunion was held on the last day of the Swiss Italian Festa (18th October at Cricket Willow in Sheperds Flat).
Out of the reunion, I met Kaye Poustie.
This is her line:
Pietro Antonio Lafranchi born 1st October 1840 Coglio, Ticino, Switzerland. Youngest child from his 2nd marriage is: Elsie Francis Elizabeth Lafranchi who married William Patrick Maidment.
Their 2nd born: William Francis Maidment.
His daughter: Kaye Poustie nee Maidment.
She sent me this photo.
Her grandmother, Elsie had this, and it was passed down to Kaye’s mother and father when Elsie died.
No one knows who she is, but there are family resemblances.
Hopefully someone might know her. Kaye has given permisssion for this to happen.
