BLIGHT in Sth Australia
« on: Friday 28 December 07 08:42 GMT (UK) »
I'm researching the BLIGHT family in Sth Australia and have drawn a blank with the following member, daughter of John & Helena BLIGHT, nee Reid.   I only have death records up to 1915.

BLIGHT Grace Mary Ann born 26.6.1875 Pt Pirie - can't find any further info on her in Sth Aust. 

Grace had a brother:-
BLIGHT John Henry William born 29.4.1881 Kanyaka.  He married in 1904 Mary Elizabeth NEYLAN, daughter of Patrick.   I've found 1 child to them, Manfred Laurence James b.1905 Unley and his marriage also.
I haven't located Mary Elizabeth NEYLAN's birth or death details.
Nor do I have the death details of John Henry William BLIGHT b. 1881.

Appreciate someone else's input into these family dead ends - thanks,  Sashar

Sashar, I can't see Grace Mary Ann Blight's marriage to 1937 or death to 1972 in South Australia, I'm afraid.  :(

Hell o there cando

You are  probably  right  with that burial listing,  I  am  probably not on  the right trail there with Grace Blight.

Cando - I think you've got the right bloke here, thankyou.  They were around the Wirrabara/Pt Pirie area-

Ozybob - that is the right family.   I even have an Elizabeth Jane BLIGHT b.c.1874 that I think belongs with this family as their 1st child.    Elizabeth married and had 8 children, some of them with names from the Reid side of the family i.e. Adam, Helena, so I'm pretty sure she belongs with this lot even though I can't find her birth either.

Can a death be found for Mary Elizabeth BLIGHT, nee Neylan?.  If that is her husband John William Blight's death in 1951 and he was a Widower, then she must have died before then.

Shame about the Grace M BLIGHT in WA - looked good for a while!

Thankyou all for your help - regards, Sashar

Sashar, I wonder if this is the death of Mary Elizabeth Blight, nee Neylan......

 Eliza BLIGHT aged 54 of Wirrabara and married died 19 April 1943 at Booleroo Centre.
Relative = John William BLIGHT (Husband)
Ref = Fro 662/1959

She may have been known as Eliza. On the other hand, the age given is a bit out....Mary Elizabeth gave her age as 20 when she married in 1904.

There are no other deaths that look likely to me.
