Ivon Donnelly is my great uncle. His sister Eileen is my grandmother who married Frank Bost (d.1938)in Singapore in 1909 (The reception in Raffles). They managed a rubber plantation in Jesselton, British North Borneo (Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia) before migrating to Sydney Australia in 1921 where she lived until her death in 1970. The entire family history is fascinating. Jeff Bost
