The Sydney Morning Herald - Saturday 15 December 1906 p.12
IN MEM0RIAM.
CHAMBERS.-In fond remembrance of our dear
daughter and sister, Margaret Chambers, who died
at Edinburgh road, Marrickville, December 15, 1903
aged 15 years. Inserted by her loving father and
mother, James and Margaret Chambers, her brothers,
and sister, Allce E. Flood, Marsfield.


Alice E. or Alice C married 1895 so born when?

How do we sort McGILL and LALEY?

Births Dec Qtr 1858
McGill Margaret Newcastle T 10b 52

If that is the right one how can there be time for a first marriage to LALEY and second marriage in 1875?

Marriages Mar Qtr 1853
GREGG Ellen Newcastle T 10b 163
HERON Mary Newcastle T. 10b 163
JONES George Newcastle T 10b 163
MCGILL Joseph Newcastle T 10b 163

Margaret's arrival?

Any births in Victoria 1878 - 1884?

And sort out the McGILL / LALEY bit.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Friday 21 July 1922 p.7
FUNERALS
...
James - WIFE

re MOTHER, Margaret Chambers

James, Joseph, William, Frederick

Mr & Mrs George FLOOD (Not William ??? )

Mr & Mrs Bert PITTY

Mr & Mrs Ernest ROBINSON

so we are missing lots of birth reg for children of James & Margaret.

I still can't explain the McGILL - LALEY bit.

Two marriages for Alice ?

14021/1922 FLOOD GEORGE P - FLOOD ALICE E - REDFERN ** 8 Nov

A death for William ?

If the marriage was in November how could Alice be married to George when her mother died in July?

Death notice for Alice says she was married to George Patrick Flood.

No age at death for Alice so no clue when or where she was born.

---

Marriage 6791/1921 PITTY WALTER F B - CHAMBERS GLADYS M - ROCKDALE


Can't find the ROBINSION - CHAMBERS in NSW.

Death 18388/1924 PITTY GLADYS M - JAMES - MARGARET R - PADDINGTON

PITTY Gladys May Death notice 22DEC1924 Death 24 at Paddington, late of Rockdale Sydney Morning Herald 23DEC1924

Margaret R = Margaret Rose fits. Also the mother of Alice.

W. F. (Bert) so it's the right one.

A birth for Gladys abt 1900? and a birth for Alice ? - both with mother Margaret Rose.

Did James marry twice to 2x Margaret? No other marriage 1876 - 1922 in NSW for James to a Margaret or a Rose.

Marriage to Margaret LALEY in 1875.

Margaret nee McGILL died 1922.
