Yet another Jumnetta!

Bev's "Jumna" passenger list for that maiden voyage has turned up another baby girl born on board.
A baby girl was born to Samuel and Agnes McKinstry on 23 September 1886, two days after the Jumna left port in London.
This child must have been the one that was mentioned in the cutting from the Brisbane Courier, as (you've guessed it) she was also named Jumnetta by the time the family embarked.
Her birth registration was sent back to London in an earlier report than the other three babies that we've already found.
That's three Jumnettas from one voyage.
