Photo is courtesy of Janice Fletcher and Margaret Brown. Andrewina was their great-grandmother. Andrewina Morison was the daughter of Andrew Lowe Morison and Helen Simpson Doig Morison. The Morison family migrated to Hobart, Australia around 1855, returning to Scotland about 1868. Andrewina, however, remained in Tasmania as she married Henry Heald, Jr. in Feb. 1867. Per Janice and Margaret: "The family had moved to Launceston by 1878, where Henry Heald and Andrewina Morison were tailors, hatters and general outfitters in Brisbane Street; later known as H. Heald, St John Street. The Tasmanian Exhibition 1891-92 official catalogue states that Mrs Heald and Miss Heald (daughter of Henry and Andrewina) were in the Tasmanian Exhibition Choir, but sadly, Andrewina died prior to the opening of the Exhibition on 7 Sep 1891.
