Hi Cando and Jenn,
I just replied - but it seemed to get lost in the back of my computer - sorry if it suddenly turns up and it appears I'm repeating myself  ;D
You two are amazing!!! In the time it takes to make a cup of tea - you have found all this information!!!
There is a problem between the dates of the Newtwig family tradgedy and Florence's death  ???
Any thoughts

There are only two NEWTWIG deaths on the SA indexes.  The newspaper item has obviously been mistranscribed onto the SAMemory website.  Perhaps it was the wife and child of one of the other fisherman.  The original item would need to be viewed.

Cheers

Thanks for that Sue,
I would never have seen that.
A very sad end for a family.
I was hoping to trace some descendants so a wonderful English gentleman could return something very special to them.

A transcription of Gertrude's death registration would show if there were any living or deceased issue...no names just numbers.
http://www.saghs.org.au/research.htm#transcription
Deaths - copied from SA Resources at the top of the board.
1908-1947
    * Date and Place of Death
    * Name
    * Sex
    * Age
    * Occupation
    * Usual Residence
    * Birthplace
    * Length of Residence in Commonwealth
    * Age at Marriage
    * Number of Issue Living and Deceased
    * Cause of Death
    * Place of Death
    * Informant

There are no NEWTWIG entries in the whitepages.

The dates of death on many websites are actually dates of burial.

Cheers

Thanks for that site, Cando.
Sounds like the death certificates are like the NZ ones - no names for the issue. Makes it almost impossible to trace extended family.

There was one birth to 1928 - a daughter - should have checked earlier.  Details pm'd

Marriages in SA only extend to 1937 and she is not listed on deaths to 1972.

I doubt there is a headstone on Gertrude's grave as I can't find her name on two online sites that list the headstones at Moonta.

I can only suggest a letter to the local paper

Clara may have married and stayed on Yorke Peninsula.
