John Jenner by Olivia Harman

Last year, Olivia Harman’s story, John Jenner, was published in our 2019 Stories of Life anthology.

Olivia’s  quest to find her great-great-great grandfather led her to the pauper’s corner of the Cornelian Bay cemetery in Hobart, Tasmania, but it’s not his final resting place in the photo above that she sent us. Nonetheless, the historian and traveler in her found it fit to try to remember and honour a certain John Jenner. Who was he? Read Olivia’s story in Papa’s Shoes and other stories of life.
