There is already a thread running where you have asked about Jack MATTHEWS
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=698540.0

When and where was Malcolm DYSON born?

We are not permitted to post any information about possible living people on rootschat so if you think he is alive please say so.

We all had to start somewhere :)

I have posted the birth and death of John C MATTHEWS and his parents marriage on the linked thread.  His obituary in 1949 referred to him as Jack MATTHEWS.

Your grandmother's sister married Joseph HOLLIWAY.

DARBY Julia   
HOLLIWAY    Joseph
District Moora  Ref#6  1935

I think it would be best if this thread and the linked one were merged to save posting information twice.   

I have pm'd you some contact details.

Hi there, i dont mean to intuerup but i have been doing a bit of research on Walgun station as well as Billinooka community as i now live there and am curious to the hisotory of it. Australia Jack, do any of your family members still have ties it in? i know that many decendants of people who lived in that community now live in Jigalong near by.
