Thanks Geoff.

I think we need some help from a tree.

John is probably an uncle. But there is also an uncle Leslie so not all the 'Leslie' would be David Leslie.

I had only followed the one son in my tree and left the other 9 children behind including a Vera M Johnston born 1894 - no idea if and when she married - so we do have 2x Vera M.

For example

1949 NSW Electoral Roll - West Sydney - Glebe
JOHNSTON Leslie, 52 Glebe street, dealer
JOHNSTON John, 52 Glebe street, railway employee

They would be brothers and uncles of David Leslie.

We have 2 Geoff.

One born 1894 as Johnston but no marriage or death yet.

If all 'Leslie' are the uncle then we are missing lots of David Leslie in the rolls.

Is one of those johns' the railway worker?

Geoff
Only one John - the Ryerson is the same death date - yes I think that is the railway employee and uncle of David Leslie.

The brother of that John is a Leslie. !!

I only traced David Leslie's father not all his uncles until now.

John born 1888 d. 1973
Leslie born 1881 d. 1965.

Thanks Geoff.

That rules her out from that date so back to 1x Vera Johnston in rolls.

1963 NSW Electoral Roll - West Sydney - Glebe
JOHNSTON Leslie, 52 Glebe street, dealer
JOHNSTON John, 52 Glebe street, railway employee
JOHNSTON May, 52 Glebe street, home duties

If all 'Leslie' are the uncle then that 1963 does not have David Leslie or Vera May in it, brothers and who ever May is??

In 1963 David Leslie is the box maker.
