Thanks gibbo.

The Towers ones are the other family.

Looks like Charleville/Roma for my mob.

Bridget and William.

1937 notice for Bridget says married to Michael hence 1944 is my Bridget.

Back after lunch.

Currently searching Trove for birth notices in 1940s and 50s.

Ok, I was confused.

Now I'm searching for birth notices from 1893 to 1920.

Can't find any that fit.

ER's
Roma Maranoa Queensland Australia
Bridget Purcell
1925 / 1926/ 1930 / 1936 and 1937

It wont let me have access but would be interesting to see if there were any other Purcell's with her. Would it help if there were some with her?

Thanks gibbo.

I've finished with BDM and no marriage or early deaths so moving to E/R.

Norah Kathleen Purcell 1958 city, Maranoa, Queensland

Looking to see if that might be a daughter of Thomas, David or Patrick.

Roma should be in Maranoa.

Grandchildren of William & Bridget as listed in 1944.
Kate, Ruby, Doug, Reg, Norah, & Olive.

Don't know if any are married. Don't know if they are 'pet' names or actual middle names.

Don't know their parents.

William Purcell
Marriage date:30/05/1893
Spouse's name:Bridget O'Neill
Registration details:1893/C/1202

Can't seem to find any children born 1893 - 1920 who would be parents of those above 6.

Can't find a death reg for Catherine Albion 1974? May have been b. 1887 Roma, as O'Neill.

Geoff
Ah. Thanks Geoff. I had not used the age in burial record to calculate birth date.

Death 11 Jul 1974/C05923 Albion Catherine - William Purcell - Bridget O'Neil

That has to be the 'Kate' in 1913.

OK. It seems we have daughters Kate and Norah as well as grandchildren with same names.

Yes she did but there is a Kate in the index in 1913 in Maranoa.

1913, 1919 & 1925 QLD Electoral Roll - Maranoa - Charleville
ALBION George Alexander, Ambathala, labourer
ALBION Kate, Ambathala, home duties

This has to be the right death.

Toowoomba Chronicle – Fri 7 July 1922
MR. W. PURCELL (AMBATHALLA)
CHARLEVILLE, Thursday.
Mr. William Purcell, boundary
rider for the Mitchell Rabbit Board
at Ambathalla, died this morning. De-
ceased was an old and much respected
Charleville identity. He leaves a grown
up family.
