Carnival of Genealogy - 62nd Edition - 3 Wishes

Dear Genea-Santa,

Thank you for allowing me to make three wishes. A couple of the items are large and cumbersome so I will understand if you cannot satisfy all of my requests. I have chosen items that were important in the lives of my ancestors; these either contributed to their livelihood or impacated on their life's journey.

1. I would love to have the bundle of goods that were stolen by my 3rd great-grandmother, Elizabeth Phipps, and caused her to be sentenced to transportation to the colony of New South Wales.

2. I am interested in owning the plough that my 3rd great grandfather, Patrick Curry, used to till the soil at Camden Park where he was a tenant farmer.

3. I'd like to have a ride in the truck belonging to my grandfather, Frank Duncan, from which he sold drinks, ice-creams and snacks in Cobar, NSW.

Thanks, Santa, for giving an old girl an opportunity to make three wishes.
