Frank Arthur CAVANAUGH

Not sure about this one either. It's not Auburn.

1958 NSW Electoral Roll - Dalley - Leichhardt
CAVANAUGH Frank Arthur, 5 Thorby avenue, no occupation
CAVANAUGH Mary, 5 Thorby avenue, canteen assistant
Canteen assistant seems consistent enough!

Mary Burrisa Cavanaugh 1963 Auburn, Blaxland, New South Wales

Thanks Geoff.

That's the index entry.

Ok, who is Frank in 1980?

Try 1968 thanks.

Unfortunately nothing with Frank A's occ after 1943!

Mary Burrisa Cavanaugh
Electoral Date: 1968
Electoral Place: Auburn, Blaxland, NSW
[On her own. 6 Gibbs Street. No occ]


EDIT: Muist be another Frank in 1980..
Thanks Geoff.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Mon 13 Mar 1961 p.24
CAVANAUGH, Frank Arthur.-March 12, 1961, suddenly, of 6 Gibb Street, Auburn, dearly beloved husband of Mary Cavanaugh, aged 68 years.

So canteen assistant points to same Mary and to the one in the above notice. Not to Mary Ann in Tweed.

Frank Arthur not found between 1943 and 1958. Nothing in Trove.

No divorce in NSW archives. No marriage in NSW index. And a gap in the rolls.

Had a quick look earlier in other states, given he may have retired..

I think one of sons ended up near Darwin, not checked Northern Territory, not familiar with it..

Doesnt mean they were together but both parents noted on here.

Service Number NX47702

Died 15/01/1942

Aged 21

A.I.F. 2/30 Bn.
Australian Infantry

Son of Frank Arthur and Mary Ann Cavanaugh, of Clunes, New South Wales, Australia.

His mother is noted as next of kin on his military record which is online
Thanks gibbo.

That son was not listed on the tree.

They are together on the 1943 roll.
CAVANAUGH EDNA ELSIE JUNE : Service Number - NF463243 : Date of birth - 17 Jun 1924 : Place of birth - MURWILLUMBAH NSW : Place of enlistment - PADDINGTON NSW : Next of Kin - CAVANAUGH MARY

not sure if you want or need these.
Thanks gibbo.

Another one I didn't have. It's ok, not on a main line, but getting a full list of children is good.
Dave maybe they never actually divorced hence no reg. for a second marriage, she [the 2nd Mary] may have just taken his name??
