eMail address:

Bernhard (Bernard) ACCOLA is believed to have been born in Switzerland in 1833 or 1834. He immigrated to Australia in January 1859 aboard the ship "Ben Nevis". He married Mary Jane MATER / MATEE / MATTEER at Deniliquin NSW (New South Wales), Australia in 1866. His wife's name is variously spelled - we think "MATEER" may be correct and that she was of Irish extraction and was born at Melbourne, Australia in 1841. Bernard and Mary Jane had six children, all born in south central NSW: Male (name unknown), 1867 at Deniliquin; Bernard, 1868 at Deniliquin; Thomas, 1870 at Deniliquin; Peter, 1875 at Wagga; Christina, 1877 at Wagga; and James, 1880 at Narrandera. Peter is my wife's grandfather. Bernard (the elder) died at Narrandera in 1917 at age 84.
