Hello,

I'm looking for the marriage of Joseph FORREST & Katherine/Kate

I can't see it in Qld., NSW, Vic. or England.

First birth reg in NSW

7557/1898 FORREST HAROLD L - JOSEPH - KATHERINE - TAMWORTH

Possible death:
16602/1921 FORREST KATE - CHARLES - - HURSTVILLE

This looks like the death of a daughter:
FORREST Kathleen (Kate) Death notice 29MAR2003 Death 86 Wellington Times 02APR2003

Regards,

Dave

I'm making no progress with this one. :rolleyes:

Some reg in NSW have her name as Kate, Katherine and Catherine.

Lot's of birth reg in England but no sign of the marriage there - Kate / Kathleen / Katherine / Catherine ...


The marriage of a daughter:

15189/1925 WILLENBROCK CHARLES H - FORREST IVY - NORTH SYDNEY

and death:

4648/1979 WILLENBROCK IVY - JOSEPH - KATE

I can't find any notices in TROVE.

I can't find any trees.

Birth 25865/1901 FORREST WILLIAM S - DAVID - ELIZABETH A - REDFERN

FORREST William Stanley Death notice 23SEP1987 Death 86 late of South Hurstville SMH 26SEP1987

Death 27710/1969 FORREST WILLIAM STANLEY - JOSEPH - CATHERINE - MOREE

The Sydney Morning Herald - Thursday 10 July 1969 p.32

Thanks Geoff.

Rockdale and Kogarah are nearby suburbs so that fits with J C = James C and that family.


1936 NSW Electoral Roll - Lang - Campsie
FORREST William Stanley, 36 Claremont street, Campsie, police constable
FORREST Goldie Marie Maud, 36 Claremont street, Campsie, home duties

Dowling street is inner Sydney.


Wickham is in Hunter region near Newcastle. They would not be in Moree by choice. :) William would have been posted there.

I can only see four children. The other three:

Births
7557/1898 FORREST HAROLD L - JOSEPH - KATHERINE - TAMWORTH
7397/1899 FORREST IVY - JOSEPH - KATE - TAMWORTH
25633/1906 FORREST FLORENCE E - JOSEPH - KATE - WEST MAITLAND

We need the E/R between 1903 and 1930. :rolleyes:


Kate Forrest 1930 New South Wales North Sydney ??

Lots with that family name in North Sydney in 1930.
