Reasons why the image for this memorial was requested
I am the Great-Great Nephew of Eliza Jane Killin (nee Boyne). Eliza Jane Killin's brother Frederick Hooper Boyne of Glasgow, Scotland, was my great-great grandfather.
The Killin’s were a Scottish immigrant family.
Eliza Jane Killin (nee Boyne) was the eldest surviving child of Alexander and Mary Boyne who had fourteen children, of which eleven survived infancy. The Killin family immigrated to Australia from Scotland around about 1911. Just before the Great War broke out, Eliza Jane’s brother - Alexander Boyne - came to Australia and went to work in Brisbane. The Killin's worked as farmers at a place called Gosforth Park in/or near Gayndah.
Thomas, James and Alexander Killin together with their uncle Alexander Boyne, all served together in the 25th Battalion of the A.I.F. Thomas Killin and his uncle Alexander Boyne were sadly killed in 1917 and 1918 respectively. James Killin never saw any action, he was send back to Australia shortly after landing in England owing to a “damaged spine” and invalided out of the army. Alexander Killin was badly wounded in the war but survived and made it home. Two of the Killin Boy’s uncles from Glasgow were also on the Western Front, my great-great grandfather Frederick Boyne was with the Royal Engineers, and George Boyne was with the Royal Garrison Artillery, both survived the war.
I am very proud to call four of my ancestors ANZAC‘s.
It is my great hope that one day I will be able to visit the grave of my Great-Great Aunt and her family in person and even more so if I could get in touch with any Killin/Boyne descendents (if there are any of course) in Australia. I would be much obliged if any have previously got in touch with you, that I may have their e-mail address and bring them up-to-date about the Boyne family in “the Old Country“.
Thank You so very much for reading my request.
