Looks to be 2x Barbara Johnson in Newcastle area but probably 15-20 years between them.

1926 - one to be married shortly.

Is Ernest married to Evelyn May? Marriage? Her death?

Earlier rolls thanks - Weston is a clue.

Thanks,

Dave

Closest in NSW index is this but it's a long way away and the extra initials ??

1098/1908 JOHNSON ERNEST A E - COPINGER EVELYN M - BROKEN HILL
1098/1908 JOHNSON ERNEST A E - JACKSON EVELYN M - BROKEN HILL

Can't see a birth for Hilda with father = Ernest. Or Ann* Or an Evelyn.

Marriage in post #3 is the connection.

Looks to be the right Barbara with Ernest and Kenneth.
