Hi samantha74,

I am usually receiving rather than giving assistance, but will give it a go!

There is a Patrick Joseph HUGHES buried at Centennial Park cemetery in Pasadena, South Australia, but according to the cemetery website and Find a Grave, birth and death dates are unknown, but he lived at Athelstone and was 52 when he died. It could be worth emailing the cemetery to see if any other information is available. I have no idea how or why there would be no birth or death date recorded.

There is an SA death index for a Patrick Joseph HUGHES, death date 6 Jun 1966, but it gives no other details. They could be the same person.

To be honest, there are buckets of people with this name! I see from the article about the maintenance order that he originated from Broken Hill. He may have returned there. I am mainly looking at the SA info.

It could be worth checking the National Archives for a military service record; it's also possible that he changed his name to avoid his arrest.

Do you have any other details? Age at marriage? Children's names? Any little snippets might help, and hopefully might trigger better research than mine. Good luck!

Thank you, cupoflife. Obviously not the one we're looking for, then :). I'm trying!

Following up on information from a tree on Ancestry:

SA Police Gazette July 21 1926
Warrant issued for PATRICK JOSEPH HUGHES, expert machinist, 38-40 yo, native of Broken Hill NSW, in respect of the maintenance of his wife and children

National Archives Australia record search
https://recordsearch.naa.gov.au/SearchNRetrieve/Interface/SearchScreens/BasicSearch.aspx
HUGHES Jeremiah : Service Number - 5590 : Place of Birth - Lancelot SA : Place of Enlistment - Adelaide SA : Next of Kin - (Mother) HUGHES Bridget barcode 7031557
https://recordsearch.naa.gov.au/SearchNRetrieve/Interface/ViewImage.aspx?B=7031557

This has a lot of family information including 'medals to eldest brother P J Hughes' named by his sister H G McClure as Patrick Joseph Hughes; approx dates for deaths of parents; addresses etc

Electoral rolls have a Patrick Joseph Hughes in Broken Hill into the 1970s, and the Broken Hill cemetery has Patrick Joseph Hughes in 1976

NSW BDM is down for a few days, so cannot check further
