Frederick Estlin Kearney
« on: Monday 08 July 19 08:03 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for the DOB & DOD of Frederick Estlin Kearney. I know he married Ada Louisa Shillinghlaw on 23 Nov 1887 Victoria and his father was given as J.J.B. Kearney in the marriage notice posted in The Age Newspaper 28 Nov 1887. Would also like to now when he arrived in Australia. All help is appreciated.
