Perhaps  you  might give us a little bit more to work with ;)

Do you know when and where they were born or married etc

What time frame are we looking at

do you mean she died at Young in NSW  or that she died young?

thanks Jenn

Hi hd,

If you haven't already done so, you can find births, deaths, and marriages for this family in the online Queensland indexes https://www.bdm.qld.gov.au/IndexSearch/mainMenuSubmit.m?main_menu=IndexSearch

I seems that Emily Jane and Samuel died within 12 months of each other in 1901 and 1902 and are buried at the Toowong Cemetery.

There are a LOT of people reseaching this family who have posted detailed family trees online at Ancestry, and perhaps you are one, but if not, this site can be accessed free of charge at most public libraries in Australia.  Contact with relatives would be the best way to find and share family photos.

Queensland archives may be able to help with enquiries about children who were orphaned http://www.archives.qld.gov.au/research/indexes.asp 

Perhaps a general enquiry here might also help to find records http://www.jewishqld.com/Home/contacts

Emily Jane's death notice http://www.rootschat.com/links/0b0i/

It seems that Samuel died from a broken heart http://www.rootschat.com/links/0b0h/   

Emily had quite a lot of family around, are you sure that they did not look after the children when their parents died?

Thank you everyone for your quick replies  ;) Sorry i didn't put in to much info, i do know a little about Samuel and Emily.I have been to Toowong cemetery which was very interesting as they are surrounded by many family there which is a wealth of info as well. My interest comes from there daughter Clara,may be they were  living just with Jewish family and friends after mother died.Have been told all children went to foster care except Clara who was sent to a Industrial Home for girls???also i have never seen photos of Samuel and Emily none in our family albums .

BIG thanks to everyone who have  replied your information and leads are very welcomed  CHEERS... ;D

The AIF database  shows that Clara is listed as NOK  for her brother Jacob


The address shown on  the WW1 record lists Clara's address as c/1 of Mrs Quesnell, Merthyr road, New Farm

Ethel May Quesnell  and Charles Fredrick Quesnell appear at  this address on the electoral rolls
