REIDS OF AUSTRALIA
« on: Friday 06 March 15 11:42 GMT (UK) »
I am searching for descendants of the children of William Reid and Alexina Margaret Murray Ewing Reid of Scotland who emigrated to Australia in the 1800s.

The children who emigrated to Australia were
 
Isabel Ewing Reid born 14.04.1881 (searching for her kids and descendants)
Willaim Rounsfell Reid born 27.02.1890 (searching for his kids and descendants)
John Alexander Blair Reid died 08.11.1949 and had two children in Australia Sheila and Ailsa. Sheila was born 18.04.1914 and she married a Sheehan and Ailsa was born 25.01.1916 and she married a Patterson.(searching for children and descendants)

Appreciate any assistance anyone can give me.  :)

Isabel died unmarried in NSW:

16703/1966
REID, ISOBEL EWING
Parents: WILLIAM & ALEXINA MARGARET M
Registered at ST LEONARDS

Electoral rolls show that she lived most of her life at Beechmont in Queensland.  William Rounsfell also lived in Queensland and for much of the time they were at the same address.  I can't see anybody else at the same address who might be a wife and I don't see a marriage.  He died in Queensland:

1965   B78147
William Rounsfell   REID
Parents: William REID & Alexina Margaret Murray EWING
