Dora Jane MAGGS was aka Dulcie  ;)

She appears on the ERolls by that name & an earlier one with her mother Mary Ann MAGGS.

And... she was the only sister still living at the time.

I wonder if you have all the children of this couple too. I notice in the funeral notice for Joseph jnr it says he was Mary Ann's "seventh youngest" son? http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article188643984
