NSW Marriage 6884/1906 OGDEN HARRY S - McFARLANE VIOLET E - CANTERBURY

Looking for Violet's birth. Father should be John.

Age: 78
Death Date: 18 Nov 1942
Burial Place: Sydney, NSW
Cemetery: Waverley
Section: 16 Ordinary
Row: 14

This has to be John's second marriage. I don't have his first marriage. It's the second for Bridget.

Thanks Val.

I don't have an earlier marriage for John, if there was one. John is Violet's father but with a birth in 1888 I can't find a birth reg.
