I see on another forum that William's wife is given as Agnes Simpson.
http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/AUS-QLD-TOOWOOMBA/2009-03/1238283391

I can't find the marriage.  Nor can I find their burial at Toowoomba cemetery.http://www.toowoombarc.qld.gov.au/   

There is a burial of an Annie Ritchie at the cemetery who died aged 83 in 1947 (seems too much older than Alexander ?? ).  Where did Alexander die?

I'm looking for information on both William & Alexander Ritchie.

Namely Family details.
Children Births Marriages & Deaths.
And also hopefully eventually I'll be able to get in touch with living relatives.

Regards
Alistair.
