Hi All
thank you so much for you help.  I have been off line this weekend and was great to come back to some extra information that will help me go back another generation.

I have just found a Arthur James Drumm buried in West Terrace, DOD 22.4.1914 aged 41.  This fits except for spelling of last name.
he is buried with a Frances Drumm DOD 28.8.1904 aged 50 (born 1854) and this could be his mother - I will follow this through.

No, I don't know anything about him.   One Family story is that he was Polynesian.
I figured if I could find his death I could work my way back from there.

Thanks Sue - I did a Trove search, but didn't get these come up.  I should make my searchers broader maybe :)
So now we know that he died before 1925.

Hi All
I have a Arthur James Drummond that married a Clara Jane Donnelly in Adelaide in 1898.
Their children all born in Adelaide are:
Leslie 1898-1970
Arthur Albert - 1899-1960
Alice Pretoria - 1900-1986
Violet Linda - 1903-1972
Frances Gladys - 1906-1986
Arnold Lawrence - 1907-1982.

Clara died in 1944 and is buried in west terrace cemetery in the same plot as her mother Julia.
Clara was a nurse.
From Arthur James Drummond and Clara Donnelly's marriage certificate I can conclude that Arthur was born abt 1872 (he was 26 when he married in Dec 1898) and his father was James.
But that is all I can find on Arthur James Drummond.  I can't find his birth, or his death.  I can't find any mention of him in any papers, electrical rolls etc.
Any ideas??
there are trees on Ancestry connecting him to a James Drummond from Scotland and died in Victoria, but this James is not correct, I have followed that James right through and have his death certificate as well, he is Not Arthur James Drummonds father.
hoping someone can help.

You guys are great - I wake up in the morning and put my message and just as i go to bed you all have pretty much have solved the mystery that kept me up all last night :)

I am going to order the birth and death certificates of all 3 children.

I am pretty sure that the Annie Barton in the 1881 census is my Annie BUT i can't find her in the 1891 Census and I can't find out what she did to go to Jail - but that is for another day now i think.
thank you again

I have a ann c  moore who married george barton in Bolton in 1864
Anns parents were Daniel and Martha
Anns birth place is at sea in 1851 and 1861 census  born 1844
George divorced ann in 1876 for a affair that she was having with john harris - this all happened in lancashire
In the newspaper report of the divorce it said thar ann and john were living as men and wife with twins at the time of the divorce   
I cant find ann in 1881 or 1891 i think i have her death in bolton in 1893 - Ann Columbia barton aged 49 
Possibly she could be in prision in 1881 as there is a annie Barton born 1844 at sea on the british ship Colombus
But where are the twins they are not with john as he went on to marry and there is no sign of children 
If this is her in the 1881 census how do i find out what she did and how long did she stay in prison 
And why would she of been born at sea???? Her family for generations were from lancashire 

Sorry so many questions.....
Cheers meggles
