Thanks Rupert.

Don't know yet if it is the right Joseph.

Birth 22048/1875 ELLISON FRANCES LOUISA - JAMES - SARAH - YASS

845/1852 V1852845 80 ELLISON JAMES - STOUGHTON SARAH - JN

Can't find a marriage in NSW for a Joseph FORREST that fits.

Thanks Geoff.

I think the J C is an error reading Jas. No death in NSW to 1984 for a Joseph C. Only the 1904 death. There is this death that would fit James C.

22809/1934 FORREST JAMES C - WILLIAM M - MARGARET - KOGARAH


Don't know if the 1898 birth is the first or even if the first in NSW just that it's the first reg in NSW.

We have one family with at least one daughter in 1901 so that does not fit 1 male and 1 female unless we are missing a death for Ivy.


I can't find a marriage or a death for Ivy.

Was just looking, what else would Tamworth come under, there are 40+ possibles?

Geoff
Oh.

Tamworth is a large population centre.

Don't know when they moved from Tamworth to Hunter region.

William was born in Wickham in 1902 and that is Newcastle area.

Thanks Geoff.

Can't see a marriage in NSW for James C.

No sign in NSW of a remarriage after 1904 for Kate/Katherine.

No luck tracing Ivy or Florence either. William's notices don't mention sisters.

Stuck is the word.

No further details on Joseph only this note in marriage.
No evidence of Joseph Forrest as a husband or if he ever existed. On Kate's death certificate her father is listed as "Joseph Forrest"

The attached explains more -
