Thanks Geoff.

Did I find an easy one?

CROFTS John Funeral notice 19SEP1878 Funeral late of William St., Sydney Sydney Morning Herald 19SEP1878

Sons John and William and not much else to help. No mention of Fanny.

No births in NSW for a John & William. ??

Maybe that's the wrong death.

Births for sons John and William?

??
CROFTS WILLIAM 6938/1871 JOHN ELLEN BATHURST

No birth for a John with father = John and mother blank. But there is this death

CROFTS JOHN 21838/1941 JOHN LOUISA KOGARAH

and

CROFTS WILLIAM J 2269/1935 JOHN LOUISE HURSTVILLE

Thanks gibbo,

The address for Louisa and for John in 1878 are different.

Right death for Louisa with sons John & William but no birth reg. ??

Why only mention John & William at John's funeral?

Rookwood
L CROFTS Age 68 - 4/10/1899 Zone A Old Ground 1300

Ok, no doubt now but father on death reg might be wrong.

J CROFTS Age 48 - 18/09/1878 Zone A Old Ground 1300
