Thanks Gerry

William Kenneth Kennedy did marry Rose Ellen Gibney in 1916 - around the time of his enlistment.
No children born to this couple until 1919 when they had a son Bernard William who died the same year and is buried in the Charlton Cemetery.

It is interesting that the 1917 electoral roll still has him at Mangantang while he would have have overseas at this time.

I believe his enlistment attestation paper understates his age by 2 years (born 1878) which is confirmed by his death in 1944 aged 65.

Thanks again, Dale

Thanks Gerry.

Your help is much appreciated.


Hi All,

Just wondering if anyone found a K Kennedy at Charltoin in 1919.
I think he is William Kenneth but would like confirmation

Thanks again


WOW - Thanks everyone.

Sorry for my delayed response but I have been away for the long weekend.
What a great surprise to get this when I got home.

I believe we now have all men accounted for. I will try and put this in some order and may come back for some more information.

Thanks you all once again.


The Charlton RSL celebrates its centenary next year. As part of that event current members are trying to establish the identity of the original Committee Members.

I have attached a copy of the newspaper article from 1919 we are working from.
Some of the people I have been able to identify others not

President C Curnow (Clive William) 1891-1968
Vice President J Hedger (John Edward) 1895-1961
Secretary A Excell (Athol Frederick) 1897-
Treasurer H Peverill (Harold Joseph) 1887-1973
K Kennedy - could be William Kenneth Kennedy 1890-1962
H Sunderland - could be Henry Christian Sutherland
A J Barber ( Alfred James) c 1880-1941
J Bedford - who appears to be the shop owner where the meeting to establish the branch was held
R Reeves
A Jolly
C Clark

Would SKS with access to Electoral Rolls be able to see if these people were residing in the Charlton district in 1919?

This is not your Henry - He came to Victoria in 1859 aboard the "Red Jacket", with his brother Joseph. They are my great great grandmother's brothers. Dale

Australia / Shipping Record "Windsor" in 1856

Hi All

I am doing some research for a cousin whose ancestor was Chinese National. According to one family report he arrived aboard the "Windsor " in 1856.

I would like to know where this ship docked and whether it was possible that this person was aboard. His Australian name was James Fong but I dont know if he emigrated using that name.

Thanking you in anticipation, Dale

Hi Glenn,

As Roderick and Ann would be our common ancestors that makes us 4th cousins (I think).
I dont have much on Ewen's family maybe because he changed his name. Could you add anything?
eg Ewen's wife and their children.

I would love to know a little more about them.

Regards Dale
