It is unknown when George Warren died, however by 1847 Johanna had either remarried or was in a de facto relationship with Daniel Wenn, who had arrived in Tasmania as a convict in 1835.

The children of Johanna and Daniel include:

  • Sarah Wenn (1848 – 1851)
  • Daniel Wenn (1849 – 1927)
  • Johanna Wenn (1851 – 1910)

 

Johanna’s story begins with her brother, Archibald, being transported to Australia.
