Death? of Andrew E MORROW in Victoria
« on: Friday 22 March 13 03:05 GMT (UK) »
Hi. Looking for any information on Andrew E Morrow, formerly of Macksville NSW. Last know address was Barwon Heads VIC.
I think he was born pre 1914 (?) so am assuming deceased, as we have had no reply to letter sent to last address.
Katharine.

That is a memer of the extended family, but not the Andrew that I am looking for. Perhaps in the last 10-15 years he had been living at Barwon Heads  in VIC.
I  don't know if anyone has access to current electoral rolls, or recent death notices for Melbourne papers. I did look on Ryerson Index but couldn't match one.
Katharine.

Don't have wifes name, or middle name  :(, but that does look like a big possibility! Anyone see a newspaper notice for that Andrew?

Katharine.

Katharine, are you seeking other details of his life or are requesting only the particulars of his death?

Just death, and children really. We would like to get in contact with his family. Hence, a notice would be helpful. Katharine.

 Katharine please be aware we are not to post information on living or possible living people. Its very likely that Andrew's children, if he had any, are still living.

Have you tried the while pages phone book?

  The Necropolis at Springvale should be able to pass on a message to the relatives.    I'm looking at a letter from them I received in 1981 and they gave me detailed information about my gt.gt.uncle who was buried with his wife and one daughter in the old Melbourne General Cemetery.   Our family had lost contact after he went to OZ and then died from the Spanish 'flu in 1918.   This led me to my several times removed cousins who were living not too far away.

     Address is PO Box 159 Springvale 3171.   Phone number (03) 8558 8278
