Harold Raymond Watters aka Adams
« on: Wednesday 19 February 14 21:31 GMT (UK) »
Harold Raymond Watters was born in 1910 in Broken Hill NSW and was brought up by his mother and Alfred Adams. He was divorced in Adelaide SA in 1944 and at the time was living in Melbourne.

I am trying to find a death for Harold and although pursuing several avenues have drawn blanks.

Hope someone can help me find him.

Cheers

In 2005 there was a notice of a death of a Harold R ADAMS in the Herald Sun Melbourne on the 14th December, a possible? From Ryerson Index.

A driving offence in South Australia in 1941 if it is the correct man.

An electoral Roll note

In reply to Neil Todd
Hi Neil,
Your suggestion would make Harold 95 and no Watters men have lived that long

In reply to sparrett,
Hi Sue,
The driving offence Adams at Torrensville is the correct one.
The Mussellbrook one would make him 70 yo but it could be him.
I have some very interesting divorce proceedings from Trove including a very public marriage break up of Harold Raymond snr's marriage in "Barrier Miner" Broken Hill 1912

In reply to Merlin,
Hi Merlin,
Your Harold could be the one as he would have been 68 yo in 1978.

To all repliers so far Thank You very much.

Hi cupoflife,

It may be that your discovery is mine so long as he was 39 yo when he married Dulcie Bishop in 1949.

Cheers
and Thanks
