1928 VIC Electoral Roll - Gippsland - Drouin
HAMILTON John Campbell, Drouin South, independent means
HAMILTON Elizabeth, Drouin South, home duties

That's all folks. :biggrin:

This one is in my tree and it seems he didn't marry:

1924, 1928, 1931, 1934 & 1936 VIC Electoral Roll - Gippsland - Drouin
HAMILTON James, Longwarry, carrier

He had a brother John b. 1865 Gordon Vic. who may have married.

Sisters of my John & James married CAMPBELL brothers, hence my interest in the one in the 1928 E/R with the middle name Campbell.

Oh. Elimination time again.

Referring to the Hamiliton's in the 1928 E/R. I dont think the below is going to help none.

McCULLOCK EVELYN VICTORIA (nee Hamilton) daughter of the late John Campbell Hamilton and Elizabeth Hamilton formerly of Campbell street Coburg will hear something to her adiantage II she communicate*! with li Douglas Milne solicitor «0 Little Collins street Melb.
Thanks gibbo.

If a tree is correct then John C. junior's mother is Elizabeth MORRIS and Evelyn Victoria is a sister.

The tree then has a birth date for John C. senior of 1870 with no place of birth, no death and no parents.

If that is correct then John C. senior can't be the son of my John who was born 1865. It's not my John with dob 5 years out because he has no middle name.
Finding others in Drouin with a middle name Campbell caught my attention.

Perhaps that family in 1928 is not connected.
John HAMILTON supposedly born 1894 Paddington, NSW to John & Margaret - don't ask me what he was doing getting married in Sydney.

John junior enlisted and served overseas. I've not got as far as viewing his service records yet. Or proving his father is the John in my tree born 1865 Gordon, Vic. and died 1937 Melbourne. Margaret died 1941 Melbourne.

Be handy if all three can be found together in 1919 E/R.

Oh how curious. :D The attesting officer was his uncle who was a Captain at the time :D who embarked on the same vessel for Gallipoli. Sadly his uncle died on 25 April 1915. He was an officer in the same Infantry Bat.

Married 1920 so 1919 E/R would be interesting. Perhaps the Division of Melbourne as it includes Kensington.
