« on: Tuesday 27 January 15 13:08 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I am searching for children of John Rigby b.1872 and Grace Ann Higgins b. 1875 who lived at Nile, Tasmania. From Grace Ann's obituary there were 12 children , but only shortened names were used, Jack, Gladys, Mattie, Keith, George, Merv, Allie, Connie, Dora, Fanny, Benard and Ray, I have traced some but have a few gaps.
Aubrey John (Jack) b. 26 Dec 1893
Gladys Maud b. 22 Dec 1894
Martha Eliza b. 17 April 1897
Reginald Keith b.13 Sept 1899
Mervin Edward Baden b. 26 Oct 1900
George Steven Mafeking b. about 1901
Allie ?
Connie ?
Dora ?
Francis Ella ( Fanny) ?
Bernard Garth ?
Douglas Raymond ? about 1922
I would appreciate any help if possible

regards
Craig

Hi Craig,

In case you don't have it, Aubrey enlisted for WW1, Douglas WW2, George Steven WW2, Bernard WW2 (P.O.W. Thailand) and some WW2 enlistments for what appear to be the sons of some of their siblings.

Aubrey was killed in action in 1917 in France
