This one might be difficult.

Marriage 3126/1921 HARRIS JOHN R - PRICE MARGARET - KURRI KURRI * 27 Dec 1920

The Sydney Morning Herald - Sat 7 Oct 1939 p.8
IN DIVORCE.
DECREES ABSOLUTE.
Decrees absolute were pronounced in the following suits, and the respective marriages dissolved:
...
Margaret Harris v John Reece Harris


Parents, birth and death for Margaret.

Only clue - her parents had a shop in Kurri Kurri.

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks Geoff.

Thanks gibbo.

Just back from the local library.

I checked Hunter - Kurri Kurri for Price family - miners, labourers and wheelers but no storekeepers or shopkeepers.


Does the tree have deaths for John & Harriett ??

If this one

Death PRICE HARRIETT E 6317/1930 THOMAS SOPHIA - CANTERBURY

then

Birth SAXBY HARRIET E 7407/1862 THOMAS SOPHIA W - DUNGOG

but no mention of a daughter Margaret.

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/16680992/1169137

Marriage 6046/1896 AMIDY EDWARD - PRICE HENRIETTA - SCONE

That does not fit

Birth PRICE HENRIETTA 5022/1861 KENNETT MARY M - BATHURST

The info was from a Harris descendant so I expected to find a Price family storekeeper in Kurri Kurri in the electoral rolls. Would have given the father's name.

Death PRICE HARRIETT 12989/1910 FREDERICK J SARAH A - CESSNOCK

Death PRICE HARRIET 11380/1946 HARRY MARY ELLEN - NEWCASTLE * 25 Apr

Can't find a notice in Trove for either so far.

Can't be this one - not old enough

Birth SAXBY HARRIET E 4125/1870 AMOS R EMMA - REDFERN


This one might be too old

SAXBY HARRIET E 1025/1852 V18521025 56 HENRY LYDIA

No Price death with matching parents.

Others besides Margaret

PRICE JOHN 30682/1885 JOHN HARRIET - WALLSEND

PRICE PERAL 32221/1889 JOHN HARRIET E - WALLSEND

Taree ??

PRICE SOPHIA E 34429/1892 JOHN HARRIET E - TAREE

Death PRICE SOPHIA E 3497/1904 JOHN HARRIET E - WALLSEND

?
Marriage 5584/1906 HOLMES THOMAS - PRICE PEARL - WALLSEND

Neither death fits

HOLMES PEARL 5023/1961 CHARLES CAROLINE ELIZABETH - MANLY

HOLMES PEARL 5533/1974 JOE CHARLOTTE

Nothing is fitting to rule Harriett Saxby in or out.

Can't even rely on it being Harriett in every record so have to include the more common Harriet as well.

The only other occupation in the rolls in Kurri Kurri was hotel keeper.

Thanks gibbo.

Don't know if it's the same one or not.

Only one John Reece Harris in 1930 in Newcastle area.

A failed shopkeeper becomes a labourer.

1930 NSW Electoral Roll - Newcastle - Newcastle
HARRIS John Reece, 15 Smith street, Merewether, labourer
HARRIS Margaret, 15 Smith street, Merewether, home duties

1930 NSW Electoral Roll - East Sydney - Nithsdale
HARRIS John Reece, 441 Bourke street, labourer
HARRIS Margaret, 441 Bourke street, home duties

1936 NSW Electoral Roll - East Sydney - Surry Hills
HARRIS John Reece, 80 Marlborough street, labourer
HARRIS Margaret, 80 Marlborough street, home duties

All deaths up to 1987 in NSW for a Margaret with those parents - not including Harriet.

PEASE MARGARET 20688/1943 JOHN HARRIETT - MOSMAN

FLAVELLE EDITH MARGARET 27208/1949 JOHN HARRIETT - RYDE

DUFFY MARGARET MARY 21431/1957 JOHN HARRIETT - PETERSHAM

No help either. No marriage for a Margaret Price after 1939 to fit those three.


Right area but a long time after the divorce.

4754/1956 BEATTIE John Desmond - PRICE Margaret - Waratah, Newcastle West & Kahibah

No death to 1987 with parents that fit.

If Steve wants the proof of the connection I'm prepared to go one third of the way. :biggrin: I can get from Furner to Whiteman to Stephen to Bedford. Steve will have to take it from there.

Harriett Price 1913 New South Wales Newcastle

Not in the Newcastle area in any other year ??

There is no John Price in 1930. 8x John with a middle name in Hunter or Newcastle.


If the tree has nothing more then I think we have little chance of solving this.

Not close enough to a main line for $20 for a copy of the marriage which may or may not have parents.

Thanks gibbo.

32588/1887 PRICE MARGARET JAMES SARAH A WALLSEND
23783/1889 PRICE MARGARET E JAMES FLORA GRETA
23829/1894 PRICE MARGARET E D HENRY D MARY A NEWCASTLE


I've tried E and E D and made no progess.

John Rees/Reece born 1893. It's about 50/50 in records so I have him as John R.

Rose in one record.
