Don't know if this is the right marriage. No middle name for Joseph and a middle name for Julia:

1891/B14862 Julia Mary Anyon - Joseph Mitchell


Searching further finds:

1916/B18790 Julia Ann Murphy - Joseph Samuel Mitchell
 
No death in Qld. 1943 - 1984 for a MITCHELL with parents Joseph & Julia.


Death 1966/B85965 Mitchell Joseph Samuel - William Mitchell - Mary Grogan

Death 1971/C01489 Mitchell Julia - Moses Murphy - Julia Kenney

Thanks Geoff.

With that type of address you can't tell if they are in the same house.

Who is this?
 
:2fun:

Albion Vale just off the Sandy Creek in Queensland is a homestead about 950km northwest of Brisbane. The nearest more populous place is the village of Aramac which is 73km away with a population of around 320.


Interesting how each fills in the Enrollment form with a slightly different address.
 
Marriage 1916/B18790 Julia Ann Murphy - Joseph Samuel Mitchell

I've not checked the index yet but I presume they vanish from E/R to fit these deaths:

Death 1966/B85965 Mitchell Joseph Samuel - William Mitchell - Mary Grogan

Death 1971/C01489 Mitchell Julia - Moses Murphy - Julia Kenney

Nothing clear in the index for 1954 or 1958 or 1963. They may well have moved out of the area.
