Thanks gibbo. :)

The children and dob from a tree on another topic.

Too many Victorian look ups to bother you-know-who :biggrin: so I'll wait until I next go to the state library.

Yes, all except Catherine 1867 on the Vic BMD site.

Kate = Catherine b. 1867 Vic. ?

Fan = Frances Elizabeth b. 1869 Vic.

DJ = David John b. 1870 Vic.

SS = Samuel Shepherd b. 1876 Vic.

Sara = Sarah Ellen b. 1879 Vic.

===

Ellen Shepherd b. 1883 Vic.

MAK = ???

No mention of Jack in that notice.

Starting with this:

KENDALL Jack Gregory : Service Number - 6521 : Place of Birth - Maryborough QLD : Place of Enlistment - Melbourne VIC : Next of Kin - (Sister) HUGHES R A

assuming Jack's sister married a R A HUGHES can the marriage be found?

Several questions. Why is Jack not mentioned in the 1923 death notice? Why list a married sister as NOK in 1916 if his father is the Robert Henry who died in 1923? If Jack is the youngest son of Robert & Ellen why is he not listed on the tree for that family? Is the middle name Gregory any help? With Jack born about 1892 somewhere, can possible parents other than Robert & Ellen be found?
