United States of America / Rose Dorothy Gillick
« on: Friday 11 January 19 09:06 GMT (UK)  »
I am attempting to find the death of Rose Dorothy Gillick who was born in Australia on 29 Sept. 1886, emigrated to USA in the 1920's and was became a US citizen. She returned to Australia in 1955 with the intention of retiring.
She apparently left Australia on the "Pioneer Gem" on 13 June 1956 presumably to return to USA and we have been unable to find any record of her returning to Australia after that date. She apparently died in USA and the only other clue we have is that she spent a considerable time living in New York.

Trying to trace the history of some of my wife's ancestors. Michael Darmody was born in Tipperary in 1810 and his son John was born in Tipperary in 1833 and both emigrated to Australia in 1840 on board the "Birman".
We are planning a possible trip to Ireland for next year and would love to get any/more information on the forbears.
Thanks in anticipation.

Seeking information on the above who was born at Cradock, South Australia on 29 September 1886, migrated to USA in 1920. She subsequently became a US citizen but retired to South Australia in 1955. She apparently lived with her sisters at 41 High St, Glenelg. I am very anxious to find a record of her death or burial in Australia. Incidentally she was one of the "Anzac Girls" and nursed with the Australian Army in Egypt, France & England.

Trying to trace some record of Jane Gillick who lived in Peterborough, South Australia during the early 1930s. She was the daughter of Patrick Gillick and Bridget McAuley who lived at Craddock in South Australia.

I believe that she may have married and had at least one child however older family members are very vague.   

Any help would be most appreciated.

Seeking information on the parents and grandparents of the above who lived in Fremantle from about 1910. She married Harold Camm after her graduation from Adelaide University and I believe she was the first W.A. born woman to graduate in Medicine. I also understand that her father was the Town Clerk of Fremantle City Council.

Dr Parker practiced in East Fremantle for many years.
