Hoping I haven't repeated other information.   :-\

This article gives a bit more information about his drowning and states that John ANDERSON had "relatives in Junee", and left a two sons and a daughter.  He had been living at Brewarrina Station near Grong Grong (23 kilometres east of Narrandera)
http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/176230392
Children's names given here
Mrs. H. Schwartz, of Coff's Harbor, Messrs. Robert and Cliff Anderson, of Junee
http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/144105330

Grace would be the child born 1907 with this marriage at Junee 1938 #4990
Herbert Rudolph SCHWARTZ, Grace Maude ANDERSON

These describe John as a foreman for Messrs. C. Hardy and Co., building contractors, Wagga, but had been retired for 14 years.

No help in finding when his origins though.   :(

Hi Judith
Thank you we have most of the info but we do not recognized Robert or Cliff as Grace's brothers were Tom and Christian. Elizabeth/Annie Peelman/Norris was the mother of Christian Tom and Grace. She is also the mother of Dorothy, Millie and Nellie her children to Fred Austerberry. What I like to know is how was John Anderson connected to John Monash. There was a John Thomas Noble Anderson but he has a different age range.  Nobody has a photo of our John Anderson who drowned on 1943. Such a mystery as we like to know where he was born and who his parents are.

Hi

The 1943 (and earlier ones) Electoral Roll with Anderson at Junee NSW includes a Harold Septimus ANDERSON, a law clerk, and at that same address there's others with same surname, including Robert (eg also the Electoral Roll 1936) likely one of the sons mentioned in the cutting as present at the funeral  :) 
The Ryerson index has a 1986 death for an 84 year old chap Harold Septimus ANDERSON, late of Junee.  (smh 12 June 1986)
NSW BDM has a death registration #15096 of 1986 for Harold Septimus ANDERSON with parents given names as John Lauchlan and Margaret.
NSW BDM birth registration likely to be same Harold, but registered West Maitland #4405/1902

Do you have the 1943 NSW death cert (or official transcription) ... it should include the names and ages of the children of the deceased, and the name of his wife, and when/where married, and how long in the colonies etc etc.

If you have John ANDERSON's death certificate who is listed as the informant?

Very odd that the names of the sons as reported in the newspaper are not his sons   ???

Yes we do actually - must see If we have it here with us on the computer. I have never been able to find his shipping record or his marriage to Elizabeth/Annie Peelman/Norris. They separated and she died in Junee.
