Hi Dunscore,
   There is a probate notice packet for an Agnes Urie THOMAS who died in 1950.  Is this your grandmother?
https://search.records.nsw.gov.au/permalink/f/1ebnd1l/ADLIB_RNSW113432202

    I can photograph this for you next time I am at the archives if you don't have it.   It may just mention a bequest to her daughter or give some clues.

adding : her death notice - she died in South Australia http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article18189929

Do you have the probate packets for your Great Grandfather and Great Grandmother as they may mention Maude and/or Jane Moss?

Do you know when /where they died?   If they died in NSW and they left wills then their probate packets should be indexed here (unless they died between c1891-c1927 where there is a gap in the online index but I can check microfiche when I am there).

Just type the name into the main search box on home page

I do not what you to identify people by name but can you identify them relative to Agnes McDOUGALL please -

"... there was a very close match to me and the only one it could have been through was Agnes, "

Close match between you and ......who?

"...Whether my mother was aware that she had a half sister (two as it turned out!) is something I will never know.  "

Who is the other child, other half-sister?   Born before or after 1896....born where?

"...This lady and I have had contact "    Who are you referring to here.......the other half-sister?

Who was the informant for the death certificate, 1927, Jane MOSS?

Does this certificate say how many years Jane had been in NSW?

Hi Rosball & Wivenhoe,

To answer your questions.

Great Grandfather Dougall McDougall died 1924 in Randwick #12660 and his wife Janet McDougall died 1929 in Belmore, NSW #678

I do have Probate packets/Wills for both.  Dougal left his entire estate to Janet and she named most of her surviving children in her Will, although in both, there was no mention of Louisa/Maude or Jane Moss.

Agnes' Great granddaughter (or Maude's daughter) was the relative whose DNA was a close match to mine.

Agnes had a second child, daughter born on 8 April, 1897.  Agnes had married an American in Sydney in August, 1896, only a matter of months after giving birth to Louisa/Maude.  They married in Sydney and were divorced in 1900.

That baby only lived a few weeks.  Her death was May 1897.  She was premature.

I have had contact with Agnes' G. Granddaughter - the one whose DNA closely matched mine.

The Informant on Jane Moss' death certificate was her son in law - with whom she was staying at the time of her death.

She had been in the Colony 50 years (NSW).  There was no mention of her time in Queensland.

I also have Agnes' Probate/Will and the only ones mentioned in that are my mother and her brother.

Perhaps the latter two had no idea of the existence of Jane or Maude.  Agnes died in Adelaide whilst living with my parents but her ashes were returned to Sydney to be scattered at Rookwood.  I also have her husband's Probate (he died in 1938 and Agnes was the only beneficiary).


Hopefully I have answered your questions.

Thank you Wivenhoe,

Henry Jones was (supposedly) Jane's brother.  However, when Jane's sister in England died (my husband found an article on her death some time ago) her name was 'Roberts' as was Jane's maiden name.  There is some doubt as to whether Henry was being passed off as her brother as it appears that he could have been "a good friend"!

I don't know anything more about Henry other than his existence.  I didn't know they were buried in Rookwood together though.
