Think it might be a rescan needed, Wiggy - lots of compression (fuzziness) showing.

Here's 2nd Row - sharpened, B&Wed and brought up the pale bit.

Thanks very much Gadget . . .  I will rescan and will play again with things as Gadget has done . . . but I will also suggest to friend that she reviews the tree to see what other names she can expect to find.   

If she can tell some names, then as Sue suggests, we will know what we are looking for.

Thanks very much Sue, Cas and Gadget.  Very kind of you all to bother with what we know is horrible! (a stinker in good old coloquial Aussie speak!)

Hi Wiggy  :)

I have been looking/squinting a bit at this, mostly at the 3rd row section.

Are you still working on it? If so, could you post some of your ideas for that section and I'll try to add my ideas to it?

Hi Sami,      Thanks for looking.  Please post what you think as we'd like to see them.

I have just had a message from my friend . .   she wants to thank you all for your time and patience with this appallingly out of focus writing.    :-[ :-[

 You have given her a very good lead and she is now pursuing it.

We didn't have too many clues for row three - My only offering was Sophia - or Sylvia - but tend to Sophia.   . . . .  another  ?son of . . . Roy . . .  (I don't know!!  :o)   And that is in the last line!

Everyone stop looking and many many thanks.   It goes beyond the call of kindness.

Not very much and not sure any of it is correct, but perhaps it helps a bit. I only looked at Row 3:

Mrs Thomas (....s mother)

3rd Row. Lyart W.... (lying on his sisters ?) ? Clark  (? ? of  ? ?) ? ?

My Sister (married ? ? ?) ? ? ? ? ? ? of ? ?

? ? (?) ? Emma ? my fathers ?  & married ? ? of ? ? ?

Aunt Lil (my mothers youngest sister) married G?, ? ? ? ?)

Front Ppl. Thomas King ? son of Mary Jane ?,  my ? father ) ? ? ?

of Sophie B.... N..... (?)? ? (? ? of ? daughter of Mary ?

Thanks very much Sami.  I am giving your thoughts to my friend.

Over to her and her new way of sorting things out now!

Thank you very much. 

Think we will close this thread now!    :D 

Thanks again one and all who tried.

Marking this as completed . . .  as far as we've got anyhow!  ;)
