Ella fudged her age when she married - she was actually 48. Perhaps that means age 44 for John is accurate. Don't know about Dubbo though or the names of his parents. Mine manager probably also not fact.

Only one marriage to an Ella so Edward John called himself John from 1932 marriage onwards.

Looking at the family of Thomas and Mary they had 9 children born Murrurundi including

MCGEE EDWARD 18266/1879 THOMAS MARY MURRURUNDI
MCGEE JOHN 19406/1882 THOMAS MARY MURRURUNDI

Death MCGEE JOHN JOSEPH 20903/1954 THOMAS MARY - PETERSHAM

McGEE John Joseph Death notice 18JUL1954 Death 72 late of Marrickville SMH 19JUL1954

Married to Ellen Mary.

Death MCGEE EDWARD 20387/1928 THOMASMARY - BALMAIN SOUTH

McGEE Edward Death notice 01DEC1928 Death 49 late of Rozelle Sydney Morning Herald 03DEC1928

Married to Martha.

Can we trace this one ? Parkes not far from Dubbo.

Birth McGEE EDWARD J 20610/1889 EDWARD - ALICE M - PARKES

John McGee 1930 New South Wales Hunter

Is he a miner or mine manager ?

No hits in Trove for 'Edward John Mcgee' or 'Edward J Mcgee'

What to believe ?

Edward J born Parkes would fit for age and location but not parents. Seems he died 1950 with an error for mother's name. But J= Joseph not John.

John and Edward with parents Thomas & Mary are also accounted for.

If Edward John was born abt 1888 at or near Dubbo then there seems to be no other births for Thomas and Mary Platt.

A marriage for Thomas & Mary Platt? Any tree??
