That's a fair distance to be commuting for love.......especially in those days........I am intrigued as to how they came together!

Thanks Sue.

Snap, Sue.

I was just looking at that and calculating the distance from Merinda to Mackay.........and it was just a year before she remarried.

What took her all that way, I wonder!

She seemed to have up and left the family in a hurry......but I am equally as intrigued as to how she managed to leave, travel, find somewhere to stay and support herself.

There does seem to be some Ruane families in Queensland, so I wonder of she took herself off to one of them and then met Mr Roper.

Cheers

Many thanks Sue........wounded and nasty diseases.......he had a time of the war didn't he!

I am unsure if the Giese family went looking for her, Wivenhoe..........the family, it appears, was fairly fractured, and not much information on personal matters was known.

I am fascinated that he chose to call himself by his mothers maiden name. That level of covering up, I am wondering if she ever got a divorce. I can't find one in NSW.
I will suggest that my friend gets this second marriage certificate to see if Josephine married as a divorced or single woman.

The one thing that seems to be hanging (and I haven't seemed to have found) is a grave photo.......any thoughts?

She is very grateful for all of the information you have found........you have made her extremely happy.

Many thanks
Susie

Wow.........Debra, you are a superstar. Many thanks.

And Ros.......many thanks, and ditto to Matt.

Now the question is..........when did she marry Alfred Howard........not listed as Howard in NSW or QLD.

This is a woman who went to great lengths to disappear from her family........it will be interesting to unearth her secrets.

Australia / Josephine Ruane Death

Morning,

I have been asked to find a friend's grandmothers death that has puzzled the family for decades.

What do I know about her?

Her name was Josephine RUANE and she was born was born in 1883 to MATHEW and MARIA in LISMORE   (NSW BDM Cert 29583/1883 )

She got married in 1906 to John G GIESE  in CASINO (NSW BDM Cert. 6910/1906 )

Josephine and John had multiple children..........and then she disappears......well at least from NSW records.

I can't locate a remarriage, a death or a cemetery record, and Ancestry is not very forthcoming either!

Not sure if she travelled over the border and is hidden in the QLD or other records........but I would love to get a death date and hopefully cemetery location for Josephine.

Cheers
