Thanks Geoff.

It's the marriage I have.

1937 VIC Electoral Roll - Melbourne - St Kilda West
CUMMINS Dorothy May, 100 Grey st, assistant

If that is the correct one then

1949 VIC Electoral Roll - Isaacs - St. Kilda
CUMMINS Dorothy May, No.1, 8 Bluff av., S.3., assistant


This is the correct one - married daughter

1954 VIC Electoral Roll - Balaclava - Elsternwick
HODGES Allan Charles, 6 Orrong rd., clerk
HODGES Nelleen Kathleen, 6 Orrong rd., home duties
HODGES Charles John Powell, 6 Orrong rd., secretary
CUMMINS Dorothy May, 6 Orrong rd., home duties


Re John/Jack he is not on the list of known aliases for WWI.

Thanks Geoff.

Thanks Val.

The John Joseph S/N 1624 had died by 1963 and his wife was Monica.

Can't find any ref to being wounded twice.

No Cummins births in Vic. 1892 - 1896 with mother = Maria.
