Without Douglas Armitage's help on the Waight side, I would not have as much information that appears here on this site. Along came Grant Mills and has helped me some more. A group effort has made the site grow to what it is today. Recouping the Eugene connection I have tried to investigate the Mauritian connections. Also added on the 9.8.2011 are some of the Bates and DeBrabander family. Karen has done most of the work with help from Jennifer, Dannie and Jean. Does any of the family have a photograph of 109 Eveleigh Street, Redfern at home? The townhouse's are all gone and a community park now stands on where the Redfern homes initially stood. I noted that around Eveleigh Street the names are Louis Street, Caroline Street, Caroline Lane and Hugo Street. Apparently 54 Terraced houses were demolished and the land given back to the local Aboriginals, the reason why a community park now stands on that site. I will however ask the Redfern Council as to when they were knocked down and if they have any photographs of these Terraced Houses in their archives. Does anyone recognise these addresses Eugene Correct Eating Society" Bank Chambers, Hay St Eugene Joseph, 12 Ostend St, Lidcombe Eugene Louis, Antwerp St, Bankstown Eugene L, 13 Hugo St, Redfern "Eugene'" Hair Specialist, 376 George St This is our family and if any one has any information?
