Thanks Julie,

Spouse Warren was born 1890 so dates fit.

I'm stuck. I have a marriage but no death so I'm not really sure about parents or dob. Married in 1920 in Victoria:

3013/1920 FURNER Warren Alford - Elsa May GUEST

1926 & 1930 NSW Electoral Roll - Werriwa - Goulburn
FURNER Elsa May, 23 Hurst street, Goulburn, home duties
FURNER Warren Alford, 23 Hurst street, Goulburn, auctioneer

1949 NSW Electoral Roll - Wentworth - Vaucluse
FURNER May, 44 Old South Head road, home duties
FURNER Warren Alford, 44 Old South Head road, retired


The Sydney Morning Herald - Friday 30 December 1949
DEATHS
FURNER Warren.-December 27, 1949, at Mosman (late of Goulburn), husband of Elsie May Furner, and loved father of Geoffrey, June and Elizabeth. Privately cremated at Northern Suburbs December 28, 1949.

Probate Notice published in SMH 6 Feb 1987 for Elsie May FURNER, late of Annandale.

So it's Elsa and Elsie and May in different records. Not in Ryerson index.

This is the only NSW death that could fit up to close of index in 1982 but that seems too many years prior to the Probate notice:

202366/1980 FURNER ELSIE - HENRY - MARY

However, I can't see Elsie/Elsa/May in 1980 E/R.

Annandale is in Grayndler Division. Searching Grayndler for all years for all FURNERs does not help.

Dave

?? :confused: See what you think

31724/1960 FURNER ELSIE MAY father HERBERT mother ANNIE BURWOOD

Probate -- Elsie May Furner - Date of Death 10/11/1960, Granted on 06/02/1961

Ryerson index
FURNER Elsie May Death notice 10NOV1960 Death age 69 at Earlwood Sydney Morning Herald 12NOV1960


So does 69 fit for her age? Puts year of birth around 1891 or there abouts.

Of course. :2fun:

I'll have to check the 1980 Grayndler on fiche to make sure Elsie is not living with Geoffrey. I can't see her in the E/R index. Really did expect to find her in Ryerson. I'm not going to scan all of January and one week of February 1987 SMH at the library.

Hi Dave,

Came across 2 births one 1891 - district Richmond Victoria - parents Jno/Mary, the other 1892 - district Traralgon Victoria - Parents Edw Jas/Mary Ann.
According to one tree it's the 1891 daughter of John & Mary (BENTLEY). Death 1987 no place or full date given.


According to another tree the 1892 one married Hezekiah Jex HOWLETT in 1910 in Victoria and died in SA in 1958 after a 2nd marriage in 1941 Victoria to Halford John LOCKWOOD.
