Hi Granya

Welcome to Rootschat :)

Spotted a post in another Forum which enlarged that your Patrick CURLEY:
  Died 1919

This looks very like your CURLEY family, in Australia (and if so,  names 2 of the 3 unnamed siblings in your list), but the wife/mother's surname seems to be WOODS, not KENNEDY?
