George Ashley. Don't think that is Edwin G.

If it is then Alma's maiden name is Hewitt and where is the birth of an Alma Hewitt with father = Allen and Mother = Mary A??

And then how is Hewitt and Ahearn both cousins of Rita ??

I tried a search in NSW with surname = * and Alma but it timed out on me yesterday.

Thanks Ellie.

If George Ashley is Edwin G then Alma married Richardson as Hewitt.

Where is the birth of an Alma Hewitt with father = Allen and Mother = Mary A??

If the informant for Alma's death got both parents wrong then a birth for Alma Adelaide Hewitt. Or was that a 2nd marriage to George and Hewitt is not her maiden name?

AHEARN, Percy Ive. - June 13, 1951, at R.G.H., Concord, fond brother of Alma (Mrs. Richardson) and beloved cousin of Rita and Charles Grant, aged 63 years. R.I.P.
There is only one marriage in NSW index 1870 - 1951 to fit that:

13515/1924 GRANT CHARLES A - GANE RITA B - SYDNEY

AHEARN Percy Ivo Death notice 13JUN1951 Death 63 at R.G.H. Concord Sydney Morning Herald 14JUN1951

Death AHEARN PERCY IVO 8091/1951 LAURIE - MARY ANN - BURWOOD

Birth AHEARN PERCY I 3087/1888 WILLIAM - MARY A - SYDNEY

Birth AHEARN ALMA A 17520/1893 -- MARY A - HURSTVILLE

Death 11548/1958 GRANT CHARLES ALEXANDER - JOHN JOSEPH - MARY ANN - PETERSHAM

All have Mary Ann(e) as the mother and four different fathers in the reg.

Thanks gibbo.

Links like that to NAA time out.

That has to be Alma A's birth so I don't know how we get from that to Hewitt.

Not sure if Mary A remarried or if Laurie/Lawrence and William just swapping names.

Still can't see how Alma is a cousin of Charles Grant (likely) or Rita Bedford.

This one but it's not John J - father of Charles

Marriage 849/1888 GRANT JOHN M - AHERN JULIA -SYDNEY

Ha.

Marriage 3035/1883 AHERN LAWRENCE - FLEMING MARY A - REDFERN

Rita's mother

Birth 4763/1876 FLEMING ALMA - JOHN - MARY A - PADDINGTON * 11 May 1876

Mary A died 1923 as Fleming.

So Mary A must be Alma's older sister.
