Hello everyone,

I am trying to trace a George Gibson born around 1880 approx, place of birth unknown. We do know he married a Emily Elizabeth Laycock in 1901 in queensland but dont know where. In 1912 he lived in Mungallala queensland and in 1940 he was known to have been a station owner possibly around that same area. date of death unknown, we do know his wife emily died on the 19 august 1974 and is buried in the Mungallala cemetery.We are trying to find any type of info on him, electoral registers etc. date of death etc.
Thank you

gibbo

Do you have a photo of Emily's grave, if not go to this link. You can only search with surname.
There is a George but probably too old to be yours.

Good morning Crankypants,

Many thanks for that. George and Emily were my hubby's grandparents and he had never met them and he is interested to know some stuff about them. He wasnt into this family research stuff untill he has been off work sick for a week and watching me find things on my family and now he is full of questions about his family. Looks like i might have to add another family to my research!! I have written to the queensland birth marriage and death mob and see if they can help with date of death etc. I have also written to the queensland state library to see if they have obituories for them. Thanks for the link, but i already had found the picture of emily's grave. Thanks again
