Mr. R. J. (Bob) Loury left for Morven on Tuesday last. Mr. Loury has been in business as an auctioneer at Toogoolawah for the past five years. He intends taking up similar work at Morven. Mrs. Loury will join her husband later on.

Not that one

The Relatives and Friends of Mr P.
J. Lowry (Husband), Messrs J. J., P.
T. and W. Lowry (Sons),
Don't know where or when Mary Jenkins was born. Don't know her parents.

JENKINS.— In loving memory of my dear
Aunt, MARY, wife of Joseph Jenkins ;
died April 10th, 1897.
Mary Loury

But her father is not Joseph.

That is the only hit in Trove searching for 'mary loury'
The Courier-Mail (Brisbane, Qld. : 1933 - 1954) Wed 1 Nov 1944 Page 8 Family Notices
LOURY— FINDER.— The wedding took
place in England on August 21st of
Flying Officer Trevor R. Loury, elder
Son of Mr. & Mrs. R. J. Loury. Oakey,
to Irene, Daughter or Mr. & Mrs. Pinder.
Clecthorpes, Lincolnshire, England.

Don't have that son on the list in my tree. Gap 1891 - 1899.
This is an interesting birth also..

Pretoria Trine Choffin Loury
Birth Date: 15 Oct 1900
Registration Year: 1900
Registration Place: Queensland, Australia
Parents = Robert Loury & Mary Jenkins

I think the middle name is Irine.

No others in the gap as Lowry.

Can't see a death for Mary.

That marriage is no help. RJ died 1939.
Something is not right.
