I have found a marriage for only the brother and no details at all for the girls. They just seemed to disappear!

I will PM the marriage as Michael's wife might still be alive.

thanks Sandra (and for the PM)
the only trace I have of them so far is the death notice for their mother in Nov 1932
when I get to the library I will have a look at that tree

cheers

Hi Lou,

I saw the probate notice for Catherine but didn't see the actual death notice. Does it name all 4 children, or give an indication if Catherine was already widowed. Sometimes they state the location of the children.

Launceston Examiner 15 Nov 1932
WALSH  on the 14th of November at her residence Haig St Mowbray, Catherine dearly beloved wife of Michael Walsh, and loving mother of Mary, Madge, Vera and Gerald; in her 68th year.

very sparse unfortuately - no surnames (could they all be unmarried??) no locations
her husband Michael died in 1945

Madge WALSH married John H DOBSON in Perth in 1934.

Amy DOBSON died Perth 1934. Not necessarily the same girl but using both her names is a bit too much of a coincidence. Trove shows this to be an elderly woman.

John H would be John Herbert DOBSON as these 2 were found on electoral rolls. Madge is shown up to 1972 in Kalgoorlie but I don't have access to deaths in WA for that time to see if her parents were named.


*** Found her death in 1974, wrong woman.

your thoughts appreciated Merlin and Sandra

I think I have located headstone references on the eHeritage link
both Wynyard General Lawn Cemetery
James Arnold COOPER born 1910 died 1991 (this tallies with a newspaper article from 1952 in which he is described as age 42 from Trowutta)
and
Amy May COOPER b 1909 died 1994
she may have been untruthful re her age if it is the Amy I'm looking for as, if born 1895, she would have been 15 years older than her husband
hmmm...
