Hi Karen !
I knew your father & his brother ,even enjoyed a night at their home
with their parents in Margaret St Toowoomba . An ex wife of Robert
lived for many years at Marburg in Qld -- as did most of the
original Seipp's who came from Germany live in Marburg Germany .
The name originally had 2 p's -as SEIPP .
Robert was involved in Mechanical Engineering at Toowoomba foundry &
John was a draughtsman with T/ba City Council . He had a son named
John who called at my home seeking his father , some years after he
had allegedly been killed in a motorcycle accident en route to Roma
,more than 20 years ago. The owner of the allegedly borrowed motor
cycle told me the story .
John - as your possible uncle & the one I knew in Toowoomba -- was
reputed to have lived many years in Melbourne & had a friendship
with a Mrs. Yates of North Shore ,Sydney , one of the 'Yates' seeds
family whom I met b y accident app. 40 years ago .
As far as we are able to establish Chris Seip was a cousin of my
father as a grandson of only one other migrant from Germany , my
father , Leslie, being a grandson of the other . I had a brother
George ,now deceased .
Feel free to call again
Leslie John SEIP
