Ok time for an update on what I now have....between Tom and Mabel, they had three children who I am now trying to follow down the line but it seems to be one of those periods where although the information gathering processes had improved, the storage processes still needed working on. So have...

I have been told that there may have been an Alice GEE borne to Benjamin GEE (b.1861) and Annie Eliza GEE (nee Tickle bap. 01Jun1862, buried 20Jan1901).

Ethel 31Mar1896) – 122 Beresford St
Albert (10Jul1897) – 17 Greig St
