Dorothea Clowes (William Cubitt) was born on 26 Jan 1904 in Augathulia Qld. Aus. She died on 8 Dec 1988 in Sydney.
Marriage 137/1932 MILLER ARTHUR V - CLOWES DOROTHEA - SYDNEY * 24 Dec 1931

The Sydney Morning Herald - Tuesday 13 December 1988 p.34
DEATHS
MILLER, Dorothea.-December 8, 1988, formerly of Sydney and Bowral, beloved wife of Arthur (deceased), mother of Josephine and Tony, mother-in-law of Keith and Elizabeth, grandmother and great-grandmother of all their children. Privately cremated.

The death is correct but I can't confirm the birth.

Thanks gibbo.

I don't know how accurate the detail is because the tree claims to go back to 1400s with one Clowes being surgeon to Queen Elizabeth I.

I can't even find that place. This is the closest??

Augathella is a town in western Queensland, Australia, and is part of the Shire of Murweh. Augathella lies on the Matilda Highway, is 85 kilometres north of the town of Charleville, and 748 kilometres west of Brisbane.

Thanks gibbo.

No need to chase any of them. Getting too far out on a limb of my tree.

Wonder why one reg is missing.

Will have to wait two years to get the death reg.

Dorothea's daughter is the one in my tree but I have no death so no name as could be still living.

Windows is asking for a reboot. :rolleyes:

Be back in a few minutes.

Can't see a birth notice in Trove.

William Cubbit's father William died in Qld. in 1904. I'm not interested. :biggrin: Not going to follow the family to 1400s.

Case closed thanks gibbo.
