I have no idea how Betsy might fit into my tree.

Probably have to hope some tree gives a hint.

Thanks,

Thanks gibbo.

I think there is no Maxwell on the McLuckie side so on the side a McLuckie married but three possible.

Robert Alexander had daughters Mary and Ann so he is ruled out as father.

I have no marriage in Qld. for Alexander William.

The other is Robert Douglas.

Daughter

So is Betsy's father Robert Douglas?

If so then on the Coleman side there is Cairns, Trotter, Trotman, Rackham, but no sign yet of Maxwell.

John S R Coleman is on another topic.

Thanks Val.

Thanks gibbo.

So this one is not the same one.

Not Lilley - Nundah in 1958.

1964 & 1968 QLD Electoral Roll - Lilley - Nundah
McLUCKIE Betsy Maxwell, 2 Etonwood Flats, Wood st., Nundah, h.d.


1964 & 1968 QLD Electoral Roll - Lilley - Hendra
McLUCKIE Robert Douglas, 37 Lukin st., Clayfield, distributor
McLUCKIE Katherine Hope, 37 Lukin st., Clayfield, home duties


The only 2x Betsy Maxwell in the Qld. roll and no overlapping years.

No death in Qld. 1965 - 1987 for a Betsy McLuckie. I've gone through a* to z* and no death for same years for a married Betsy with parents that match a McLuckie.

So, next question, is McLuckie her married name?

No marriage in Qld. index 1900 - 1942 for a Betsy/Betsey/Elizabeth to McLucky/McLuckie.

She's my great grandmother on my mothers side. I was just reaching her and this forum came up. I wasn't expecting anything to be honest. I remember her when she was alive

Do you know who Betsy married and when?

I can't work out how she would fit in to the McLuckies who arrived in Qld.

A gentleman by the name of McLuckie was her second husband. It did not last long and she went back to her previous name Tupper
