WILLIAM RICHARD KENNETT SOUTH AUSTRALIA
« on: Friday 05 December 14 11:04 GMT (UK) »
WILLIAM RICHARD KENNETT was born in 1858 at South Australia. He married Wilhelmine Bertha Marie Heinemann in 1881. Wilhelmine died in 1926, however I cannot find a death for WILIAM RICHARD or WILLIAM KENNETT.
If anyone can help, I would appreciate it.

Regards
Lorayne

The age is not a match.  Is this a son.

KENNETT William Richard  81 years Status Married  No relative recorded
29 May 1958
Residence Wayville Death Place Adelaide  Ade H 875/3025

Symbol H indicates he died in hospital or place of care.  May have been the Royal Adelaide Hospital.

His status is married so he married after Wilhelmine Bertha Marie's death in 1926.

Death of his 2nd wife
KENNETT Lillian May  71 years  Status Widow  Relative William KENNETT [Deceased husband]
7 Dec 1964
Residence Croydon  Death Place Woodville  Hin H 983/8392

May have died in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital or a nursing home in the area.

Edit....this Wm Richard KENNETT is the son of Daniel Richard KENNETT. :(

Dear Cando
Thanks very much for your reply.
The William Richard Kennett who died in 1958 is not the one I'm looking for.
My William Richard Kennett was born in 1858. That is his father who died in 1908. I have the info for his wife and son.
I cannot find a death for him in Australia. It may be in the spelling, or he did not die in this country.
It is very strange.

Regards
Lorayne

Trying to narrow the possible dates - this family notice implies that he was still with his wife in 1902 when Minna's sister died 'at the home of her brother-in-law (W R KENNETT), Westminster St, East Adelaide".  She was also interred at Payneham Cemetery.
