There may be another son of Jesse and Mabel LEE-CONWAY. There is a WW2 enlistment for Keith Woodrow LEE-CONWAY - born 29 Nov 1919 Newtown, next of kin - Mabel LEE-CONWAY. I can't see a NSW birth registration for him though.  :-\

There are many items in newspapers about this man on trove

 - in trouble with the law in various States, prison escapes and recaptures etc, including this one with a photograph:

I'm not sure if you already have this information:

Mabel LEE CONWAY died 23 April 1951 at South Yarra. Death notice here:
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article206391072

Wife of Richard (deceased), mother of Doug, Ern, Ivy (Mrs HAYES) and Keith.

Death registration 18320 / 1951 Castemaine. Unfortunately it looks like the death certificate may include many unknowns as there is no parents' names on the index.

No mention of Rita in the death notice  :-\


For more colour, 1911.  Going by Richard and known as “Yank”
