Relationship to me:- Grandfather. (Paternal)

The following is the only information I have been able to collect on these children.

William M. (A.M?) was born in 1892 at Orange, New South Wales and passed away at the age of 5 years in 1897 at Bourke, New South Wales.

Cornelius (1897/8-1969) and I believe married a Miss Iris B. Smith at Grenfell, New South Wales in 1928 and passed away at Balmain, New South Wales.  Iris died at Sydney in 1971.  Records again appear to be the enemy.  Cornelius’ birth date is estimate as there is no record of his birth being registered.  His age stated on his father and mothers death certificates differs and indicate he was born in either 1897 or 1898.

Kathleen b1898 at Cobar and in 1917 still in Cobar married Mr. William J. Brown.  There is some evidence that William was the son of Samuel Alfred (Alfred S.?) and Emily A. Brown of Grenfell, New South Wales, although I cannot  positively verify this.

Elizabeth P. Born at Cobar in 1902 and died in 1961 at Burwood, New South Wales.  She wed a Mr. Harold Carter at Burwood in 1942.
