Jakob Ignatz 'John' OTTNAD born Dahn, Palatinate. Arrived Age 25.
Jakob Ignatz 'John' OTTNAD, the son of Georg Michael Ottnad and Theresia Meier, was born on the 7th November 1854 in Dahn, in the Palatinate, then the Rhineland territory of the Königreich Bayern (Kingdom of Bavaria)- now in the Südwestpfalz area of the Rheinland Pfalz. Ottnad emigrated out of Deutschland by way of the Baltic and northernnost German Port of Kiel, on the ship "MÖVE" or MOEVE" arriving in Australia at the Port of Melbourne in March 1880. Family research has brought contact with an Ottnad cousin from Germany 'who was surprised that an Ottnad went to Australia, for, as he said, most went to America. He found Jakob's name on a (German) register of "wanted persons". Apparently, he left Germany without permission?" And so by Ottnad's covert departure out of Kiel we find a suggestion of another successful escape route, and seemingly, one taken in active avoidance of the Deutsch Reich Authority's militaristic universal Conscription. After disembarkation Ottnad wandered unsettled through the State of Victoria for several years, gravitating inland towards the River Murray, and settling for time at Swan Hill, on the borders of Victoria. Ottnad was married at Swan Hill on the 20th September 1884 to Anne HAUGHNEY who had been born in Coon, County Kilkenny, Ireland. Their daughter Marie Theresa Ottnad was born on the 18th October 1884 in Swan Hill, though registered in Melbourne. The Ottnads then crossed into the Riverina, and went up to the Yalgogrin, Wyalong and the Hillston districts of riverine New South Wales, where they lived for the next 25 years. Sadly, his wife Annie died in Hillston, NSW in 1919. After which he went to the Lower Murrumbidgee town of Balranald for five years. With his unusual and unpredictably-origined name, Ottnad seems to have escaped notice as an Enemy Alien during the 'not-so Great War.' By the time he took the Oath in his Aliens Memorial for Naturalisation on the first of April 1930 he had been 50 years in Australia, and he was retired, and living at No 8., Fifth Avenue, Lidcombe, Sydney, New South Wales. His daughter Marie Theresa was then living with him in Lidcombe. John Ottnad died soon after in Sydney on 1930. - [Acknowledgment and thanks to Bev Brokenshire for family details.]Christian Friedrich Wilhelm OTTO - naturalised 1904
