Elvie Mary Irene MAGGS
« on: Saturday 27 January 18 23:18 GMT (UK) »
 Hi all,

Looking for some help please.


Elvie Mary Irene Maggs   born c1921. 
Father: Robert Thomas Maggs Mother: Edith Ellen BRITNELL

She married Thomas Cooper Thomas 1938 in Victoria
He died  October 1951 in Victoria. Canít find any death notices for him.

In Elvieís brotherís death notice 18/4/1945 she is named as Mrs. Anderson
Victorian Electoral Roll
Name: Elvie Mary Irene Anderson
Residence: 1943 - city, Gippsland, Victoria, Australia
Is there anyone else with her at this address?

She married Russell Ronald Albury Maggs 1946 in Victoria. Her maiden name was given as Maggs
He died 20/3/1960

Elvie died as Elvie Mary Irene McDonald 4/2/1969.
I used the ďAsk a LibrarianĒ feature for the State Library and got a fantastic response.
They provided all the death and funeral notices that were published.
It lists all her children, but given they may still be alive, I wonít name them.  What Iím trying to find out is, who fathered the children.
There is one male named   J* married to L* ,   and 4 girls.
A* married to C*,      N* married to S*,    N* married to R*,    and G* who is the daughter
of Russell Maggs, engaged to L*

Elvie is only a distant "twig" on my tree, so I'm reluctant to get a certificate at this stage but I'm intrigued by her life.

Any help with this would be appreciated and please remove this post if I have breached any privacy rules.

Thanks,
Raylen

Yes, another is with her in Sale in 1943.

Address
29 Landsdowne St Sale.
She is performing home duties and he is a labourer.

I will search for his death before I put his name here, but PM to you.

Thanks to Sue for her PM.

The name she sent to me is just the clue I needed to identify that the children were from the Anderson relationship.

Thanks again for your help Sue.

Good to hear :D


Thomas Cooper THOMAS enlisted in Aust Army in July 1940
with NOK THOMAS E.

He was not discharged until 1946.

Elvie was in Sale as ANDERSON in 1943.

PS.
It's Ronald Albury MAGGS, not Russell.
