There is another Randolph

MCDONALD RANDOLPH 4950/1861 JOHN A SARAH - BATHURST

I think the New England ones are ruled out as my guy was a railway porter 1903 onwards.

1932 NSW Electoral Roll - Parramatta - Beecroft
McDONALD Mary Ann, Ulindah, Hannah st., Beecroft, home duties
McDONALD Randolph, Ulindah, Hannah st., Beecroft, railway porter

Thanks gibbo.

I searched for Helen * death up to 1950 in NSW with parents Malcolm & Flora and Neil & Mary

PAVLETICH HELEN 12334/1921 NEIL MARY H - GRANVILLE

Presbyterian Rookwood age 68. No mention of any family.

Maybe that one is unmarried ?? Can't find a marriage using pav* No birth as Helen pav* ??

No burial on BCC site or ACI. Not listed at Mt Thompson but could have been cremated there.
