Richard Edwin Johns (1906-1995) and Frederic James Johns (1909- )
« on: Friday 02 February 18 23:12 GMT (UK) »
Brothers, the children of Mabel Davey (who may well have died in W.A. in 1942) and Alfred Bennett Johns. Richard Edwin Johns died and is buried in Busselton. He  lived at 37 Reynolds Street Busselton with his wife Mary Kathleen. Australian army records name Josephine Johns as the wife of Frederic Johns. There is reason to believe Frederic was in Busselton also
The Johns sons are part of the wider Cornwall family of Elizabeth (nee Winn) and John Roberts.  Their grandmother was Harriet Jane Roberts. Several of Harriet's brothers settled in the Bendigo area.
I am not getting very far in trying to  learn more of the lives of Richard and Frederic Johns, and would appreciate any assistance. Thanks.

You may already know that Richard's wife, Mary Kathleen JOHNS is also buried at Busselton; died 26 Oct 1993
MEMORIAL ID 180558489

WA BMD do not seem to have a record of a Mabel JOHNS death at all up to 1971, nor can I see a death in WA for for Alfred.

Thanks, Judith.

I did not know that Richard's wife was buried at Busselton as well.

And I didn't know, Sue, that Josephine's maiden name was Hogan. Thanks again.

Very grateful for the assistance.
