OH heck!!!!    ::)   ;D
I wonder  - 'cos mine married Minnie Murphy didn't he!!   And he died in Vic - 'cos you found his death here.   
But mine was a photographer - and John Francis was his uncle  . . . . I can just see it!   

"Minnie dear,  Lets take a trip up to QLD for some snaps - lots of interesting pictures to be had up there - and we can stay with Uncle John and visit the rellies while we're away!    And we only have Harold Valentine to take with us!" 



I wonder if John F had a wife and family up there.   Next assignment!!   ;)

I was just thinking - I could get the photo dated - but they were probably the same generation so that won't help much!!

I can't find any records for John Francis in Queensland....only thing I've found is that Trove snippet.   ???   :-\

There's no marriage for him in Victoria either.

He's a mystery man!

I was thinking more that Willie sent the photo to Susan or Emma Ruth!   ;)

Like your thinking - but time frame is wrong!   

Pretty sure about that.    :D

been on a big search for John Francis Dunning in Victoria - can't find him - maybe it was just him in QLD - no family!  He died in 1873 or thereabouts in QLD so . . . . . he wasn't very old - only 29ish.   Can't even find a death notice in the paper in QLD for him.

There sure are lots of Dunnings around the place  -  common that's what!   ;)

Just found his death, Wiggy.....he died in Sydney in 1872, which fits with the 1873 probate notice in the paper. Have a look at the NSW Deaths Index.

what can I say - you are all brilliant!!


Thank you so much everyone,   you've excelled, and I reckon this family is just about tabbed now!   

I am very grateful and quite over the moon really!   I've actually managed to chase them forward a bit further with the assistance of names to work with.

I think I'll close this thread now - I haven't seen anything much other than family notices while going through the papers - some ads but I think they kept their heads down most of the time.    ;)

Once again many thanks for your time and interest.      :)
