Their children were : Clara Johanne Rabach 1889 Nirranda; Margaratte Marie Rabach 1891 Allansford; and Carl Wilhelm Rabach born 1892 Allansford. Sadly, Emma Ziegler Rabach died at age 27 in 1896 at Warrnambool's lower Hopkins River-crossing town of Allansford, Victoria. After 10 years in Australia at age 40 years, Rabach was working in Allansford Victoria, as a Factory Manager, working at mechanical production with the inventor ZIEGLER, when he took the Oath of his Aliens Memorial for Naturalisation, at Allansford on the 4th February 1896.

Dr. Heinrich RABL - Doctor of Medicine, Physician.
Doctor Heinrich RABL was born in about 1857 at Münchshöfen, in the Königreich Bayern (Bavaria). Rabl trained in Deutschland as a Physician. He emigrated out of the Deutsch Reich via the British Asian Colonies, and embarked from the Port of Singapore on the ship "TIMOR" to arrive in Australia at the Port of Melbourne on the 3rd June 1884. After three months in Victoria, Doctor Rabl took the Oath of his Aliens Memorial for Naturalisation at Age 27 in Melbourne on the 8th September 1884. Doctor RABL was married in 1885 in Victoria to Helene DEGENHARDT,who was born at Tarpeena, north of Mount Gambier, South Australia on the 2 January 1864, the daughter of the early South Australians, Johann Friedrich Heinrich Degenhardt and his wife Auguste Henriette Phillipina Schwanecke. The Rabl's had gonet up to the Wimmera town of Murtoa where their children were born: Maria Auguste Rabl 1886-1886; Hermann Joseph Friedrich Rabl 1888; Elisabeth Helene Rabl 1890-1890; Sophia Emilie Rabl 1891; Siegmund Heinrich Rabl 1892; Viktor Rabl 1894; and Friedrich Oscar Rabl 1895 at Murtoa, Victoria. Doctor Heinrich RABL died in the influenza epidemic of 1919 - on the 18th May 1919 - and was buried at Murtoa, Victoria. His wife predeceased him by just three days, also taken by the same epidemic. Their son Seigmund RABL became a Doctor and took over the practice at Murtoa, and then town now takes pride in the Memorial Clock and plaque in memory of Dr. Siegmund Rabl who followed his father, Dr Heinrich Rabl as Murtoa physician. After his father`s death in the influenza epidemic of 1919 Doctor Siegmund Rabl served the district for 49 years until his own death in a road accident in 1968.

Alexander Wilhelm RABY, Arr.1888 Sydney > Townsville QLD, Soap Boiler

Jules Claude RABY - born Germany, married Margaret SMITH 1899

Joseph RACCA - born France m. 1902 Agnes THORNE

Waldemar Norman Albert RACHELL - born Germany, married Ethel May BOYD 1912

Wilhelm RACHOR- born Germany, married Dina MEYER 1902
Wilhelm RACHOR was born at Mainz, Hessen-Darmstadt, central Germany on 1st Dezember 1874. His father, Jakob Rachor, was a leading merchant of that city. On the 14th February 1900 Rachor arrived in Melbourne, Australia on the Clyde steamer 'NEEDLES' from the United States of an 'Amerika' to which he had already immigrated, found wanting, and so, departed. He was married to the Gembrook-born Swiss-German Australian girl, Dina Sophie MEYER in 1903 in as part of the German-Australian religious refugee community at Harkaway, in Berwick, Victoria. The Rachors lived at Bayswater in the Dandenong Creek area of Victoria for about five years. In 1914 when Wilhelm Rachor was naturalished in South Yarra, just after the outbreak of the 'Great' World War, he was working there in the humble role of laundryman. Wilhelm and Dina afterwards had 3 sons and 3 daughters, later settling at Healesville on the Yarra Valley, east of Melbourne, where 'Bill' ran a butcher's shop while Dina conduct a commercial laundry. Wilhelm Rachor died in his beloved Healesville home in 1944, during the tragic grief of World War Two.

Leonhard RACHOR > Sydney, NSW
Leonhardt Carl RACHOR arrived entirely separately to his kinsman Wilhelm, above. He was born 19 November 1874 in Mainz, so exactly the same age as the above. It seems likely that Wilhelm wrote from east of Melbourne to his kinsman in Mainz, and Leonhardt arrived to join him in Melbourne on the 'S.S. Medic' from Liverpool, England on 24th March 1907. He seems to have lived with his kinsman's family in Bayswater, Victoria, for about 12 months. When he was naturalised on 5 March 1910 as a British, for there was not such thing as an Australian, citizen, he was employed in the meat trade as a 'Smallgoodsman' in Arthur Street, North Sydney, NSW. He appears to have died at age 48 as 'Charles' Rachor in 1923, Sydney.

'Fritz' Friedrich RATZ - born Germany, married Anna Marie HEBER 1901
Friedrich RATZ was born 2nd Novemember 1870 in Gambach, Wetterau, in the former Grand Duchy of Hessen, Germany, which was just two months before his native State was incorporated into the Deutsch Reich. Fritz RATZ emigrated out of Deutschland on the Nord-Deutscher-Lloyd ship "Nürnberg" or "Nuremberg", arriving in Australia at the Port of Melbourne on the 15th March 1889. He was a Schumacher and Bootmaker by occupation. He was married in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on the 14th February 1901 to Anna Marie HEBER, the widow of Freidrich Ernst HEBER who died in Western Australia on the 30th April 1898. She brought her daughter, Ida Amelia HEBER (b.10 Oct 1891 Adelaide) into the marriage.

After 20 years in Australia Fritz RATZ took the Oath to be Naturalised well before the outbreak of the European catastrophe, making his Aliens Memorial on the 25th February 1909 at Goodwood, Adelaide, South Australia. By then he had resided firstly in Melbourne, Victoria for two and a half years, then for nine months in Adelaide after which he was for nearly two years in Western Australia. In about 1896 he returned to Melbourne and lived there for nearly ten years. In about 1907 he went back to Adelaide and had been there for two years by the time of his Naturalisation.


- In 1917 RATZ was found to have a large quantity of I.W.W. (International Workers of the World) literature in his hut. He pleaded guilty to being a member of the I.W.W. RATZ was sentenced to six months imprisonment in September 1817. He had by then been resident in Australia for nearly 30 years, and Naturalised here for ten years. He was not deported as his wife was resident here and no evidence or allegations of disloyalty could be found. He was discharged from prison in Februaury 1918, but he was again arrested at the Crown and Anchor Hotel in Adelaide, South Australia on the 5th March 1918 and Interned as an Enemy under the Alien Instruction Regulations 1815, No. 2 paragraph 6 (1). - He was Interned from the 5th March 1918 in the Concentration Camp Prison at Fort Largs, Largs Bay, Port Adelaide.

In 1919 the Department of Defence Authorities of the Commonwealth of Australia recommended the De-Naturalisation of Prisoner-of-War No.11049, Fritz or Friedrich RATZ for being a 'prominent I.W.W. extremist.' But somehow he managed to stay in Australia for life.

'Fritz' Friedrich RATZ died in Goodwood, Adelaide, South Australia on the 20th July 1944. His wife Anna Marie Heber RATZ was born in Heidshiem, Deutschland as Anna Marie GRAMM, daughter of Michael GRAMM, and was first married at age 20 to 28 year-old Freidrich Ernst HEBER on the 23rd May 1891 at the Registry office in Adelaide, South Australia. She died in Goodwood, South Australia on the 31st October 1947.

David RETTICH - born Württemberg, married Emma Lenkersdorff FINGER 1884
David RETTICH, son of Joseph RETTICH & Agnes ROLLER, was born on the 6th April 1851 in Daugendorf, Riedlingen, Königreich Würrtemberg. Rettich emigrated out of Wuerrtemberg and Deutschland by way of the interim hub of safety and peace in England, and there embarked at the Port of London on the the vessel "BROTHERS" to arrive in Melbourne, Australia on the 6th May 1881. On disembarking David Rettich went out to the Germanic settler district of Doncaster, in the parish of Bulleen-Bulleen, where he spent the next 20 years, marrying a local-born, though motherless, and so adopted daughter of the well-known Finger family, Emma Johanne 'Lenkerstorff' FINGER (1861-1918) in 1884. She was the daughter of Christian Gottlieb FINGER (1823 – 1886) and his wife Johanné Caroliné HEIDRICH (1825 – 1864). Emma was raised by the childless LENKERSTORFFs in Doncaster. David & Emma Rettich were to produce four sons and three daughters. They were: 1. Albert Joseph RETTICH (1885 – 1949); 2. Emma Wilhelmine RETTICH (1886 – 1929); 3. Justine Eleonore RETTICH (1888 – 1923); 4. Julia Caroline RETTICH (1889 – 1957); 5. Oswald David Wilhelm RETTICH (1891 – 1970); 6. David Hermann RETTICH (1894 – 1961); and 7. Lawrence Alexander RETTICH (1896-?).
Though all the children seem to have been born while they were in Doncaster, in about 1900 the Rettich's moved to the Dandenong Ranges town of Emerald, nearby to where they had taken up Crown Allotment 106c, in the Parish of Narre Warren, County Mornington, located in the Aura Vale - Paradise area of Narre Warren North, Victoria, Australia. The date of the 19th November 1909 was the Final settlement date on Ten year Gov't lease-buy to D. & A. Rettich for Lot 106C - of about 136 acres, taken up with his eldest son, Albert Joseph RETTICH. The Rettich family senior were seven years in the Dandenongs, the first four in Emerald, and then for three years Rettich family lived on the farm at Paradise. It seems likely that a son, or sons and daughters, stayed on the land at Paradise (now Clematis) after 1909.
In about 1908 the Rettich's senior moved into Boroondara parish, Melbourne, for they had been living in Camberwell and then at Hawthorn for six years by the time of the outbreak of War in Europe. After 33 years in Australia, at the age of 62, David Rettich was working as a Gardener and living at No.18 Launder Street, Hawthorn, Victoria, when he swore the oath to be Naturalised in his Aliens memorial of the 6th March 1914. David Rettich died on 8 August 1933 in Hawthorn East, Boroondara. His wife predeceased him, having died in 1918 in Hawthorn.

Adolophus Gustav ROSENOW Adolophus Gustav ROSENOW (1842-1904) emigrated to Melbourne from Berlin in 1863. He married Bertha Blanche Louisa BUCHECKER (1850-1895) in Vic in 1866. Two of their six children died in infancy - Will (b/d 1868) and Albert (b/d 1883). The surviving children were: Gustav Edward (1867-1936), Alexander Otto (1869-abt 1926), Herbert Lionel (1872-1959) and Adolphus Augustus (1877-1936). The youngest surviving son, Adolophus jnr, was born in St Arnaud, Vic, where relatives of his mother Bertha (nee Buchecker) appears to have lived. After the death of Bertha, Adolophus senior married Catherine Nicholls (1866-1938). Adolophus Gustav Rosenow became a mining assayer and moved with his family to the gold-mining town of Gordon near Ballarat in about 1880. He opened the Gordon Pyrites Mine in 1882. His son, Lionel also had a mine in Gordon - in 1916 he was extracting pipe-clay (kaolin). In about 1900, Adolophus snr and two of his sons, Adolophus jnr and Otto, went to the Kalgoorlie goldfields. An item in the Kalgoorlie newspaper that year refers to ‘Rosenow and Sons’ and there are numerous other mentions of ‘Rosenow’, including an item in 1906 relating to Otto Rosenow. Otto seems to have died in WA in about 1926. Adolophus jnr married Sophia Junghenn in Victoria in 1900. Sophia died in 1909. They did not have any children. He served the Aust Army in WWI and just after the war, he married a widow, Maud Staniforth (nee Martin) in WA. He died in WA in 1936. Adolophus Gustav Rosenow died in WA in 1904, a few years after arriving in Kalgoorlie from Gordon. His son, Lionel Rosenow, stayed in Gordon. Lionel was a local councillor and became Ballan Shire President in 1906. In about 1940 Lionel’s son, Eric Rosenow (1895-1972), opened a shop in Gordon and ran it for over twenty years. He then retired to Ballarat. - Rosenow Street, Gordon, Victoria, is named after the Rosenow family.

Ernst RUWOLDT Arrived in Australia on the ship "BREMEN" on 26th November 1908 at the Port of Melbourne. After landing he lived for six weeks in Melbourne, and then he overlanded northwards into the Australian interior, first to the Moree District of New South Wales for eighteen months, after which he went over the State border bridge to Cunnamulla, Queensland, for a year, and on through the Darling Downs of Queensland to St George. When he made his Oath for his Aliens Memorial for Naturalisation in Brisbane, Queensland, on the 2nd October 1911, his attestation was made in Toowoomba, but he was then living at Narangba, on the North Coast Line, and he had been three years in Australia, was unmarried, and a farmer. Ruwoldt wa sthen 30 years old, haveing been born on the 6th July 1881 near the German Baltic Coast, at Schwaan, in the Circle of (Kreis) Bad Doberan, in the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, of the Deutsch Reich (now the State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern).

Hermann RUWOLDT - born Germany, married Margaret LYNCH 1890
The RUWOLDT name seems to originate on the Baltic Coasts of Germany. Even the variant name RIEWOLDT, well-known in Australia for a champion Australian Rules footballer or two, originates on the Baltic Coast. For a player like Nick RIEWOLDT is a descendant of Freidrich Albert Hermann RIEWOLDT, who was born in 1898 further east of Mecklenburg, in the Baltic Coastal village of Schulzenhagen, Pomerania, (now Śmiechów, near Koszalin, Poland) but he did not arrive in Australia till after the Second World War, on a refugee-emigrant flight into Melbourne in 1964. By contrast, Hermann RUWOLDT came from a tad further west, born just four years before the Franco-Prussian War that brought his native Realm of Mecklenburg into the general Unification of Germany. He was was born on the 16th July 1867, in the Baltic German Port and City of Rostock, in the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, then a player in the Nord-Deutscher Bund, which morph in the Deutsch Reich. Rostock is now the largest city in the German State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Hermann Ruwoldt was a watchmaker by trade, who emigrated ahead of his coming maturity, just before he turned 21 years of age, out of this sometimes celebrated Unified German Empire, departing on a ship of the Nord-Deutscher Line, the "HOHENZOLLERN," to disembark at the Port of Adelaide, South Australia on the 26th of September 1886. Ruwoldt soon made his way overland to Victoria, via Mount Gambier where he spent six months, after which he was at Horsham for two years, in Melbourne for eighteen months, and then he settled in Bendigo for the next twenty years. Hermann Ruwoldt married Margaret LYNCH in 1890 in Victoria and by 1911 they had four Australian-born Ruwoldt children, two boys and two girls. In Bendigo, on the 24th April 1911, as if catching a puff of the wind of the war and the enmity towards Germans that was to come, Ruwoldt completed his Aliens Memorial for Naturalisation. He was then aged 43 years, of which the majority had been lived in Australia, for by then he had been in Australia for 24 years.

Johann Ernst Christian RUWOLDT
Johann Ernst Christian RUWOLDT arrived in Adelaide, South Australia in about 1878. He was born in about 1843 in the Baltic Coast village of Satow, in the Circle of (Kreis) Bad Doberan, in the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, of the Deutsch Reich (now the State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern). This is very near to Schwaan, the birthplace of Ernst Ruwoldt (above), but I am unsure of any relationship. J.E.C. Ruwoldt was aged 49 years, employed as a labourer, and living at Mount Gambier, South Australia, when he made an Oath for his Aliens Memorial for Naturalisation on the 16th June 1892. He arrived with his family, his wife was Maria Christiane Anna ENGEL. He and his wife had thee Australian-born daughters, born either in Mount Gambier, or nearby at Arno Farm.
