Hi Dave

No Ruby Marion Falkner KELLY or Ruby Miriam KELLY. Can only find Ruby Marion KELLY in 1936 & 1943 at 3 Grant street, Mudgee. She is with
James Henry KELLY grocer's assistant.

Ruby Marion Kelly Female 1936 New South Wales Gwydir Mudgee
Ruby Marion Kelly Female 1943 New South Wales Gwydir Mudgee

Just found this marriage so this Ruby is not yours.

Looking for Kenneth J KELLY there is one Kenneth James in 1936.
No Ruby/Marion/Miriam with him.

Hello crankypants,

Thanks for looking. You would think with those middle names it would be easy. Oh well, I have found nothing more to help.

I can't find the KELLY - POWELL marriage in NLA.


Elaine Elizabeth WOOTTEN b. 1902 Paddington d. 1994 Collaroy

married 1926 Paddington

William John CHAMBERS b. 1892 Enmore d. 1974

Please see what you can find. Thanks.

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. I can't either. Another one travelling with Fred. :D


Norman Fontes SILVIA b. 1897 Paddington d. 1963 Ryde ?

NOTE: Name is SILVA or SILVIA and in older records SILVER. :)

Please see what you can find. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave
 
Hello crankypants,

Birth # 15195/1897 SILVIA NORMAN F WILLIAM J JANE S PADDINGTON



Death # 16980/1963 SILVA NORMAN FONTES WILLIAM JOSEPH ELIZABETH JANE RYDE ?

NAA
Norman Fontes SILVA b. 1897 Paddington - Occupation Dentist
(next of kin uncle William James SILVA) of Parsley rd, Parsley Bay, via Watson's Bay.

He has no uncles named William. His father is William James SILVA but his children have birth reg with SILVIA.

If he didn't marry then that's a possible explanation for the father and mother to be wrong on his death certificate.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thanks. That could explain why he is not on the E/R for certain years.

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. The next NLA entry is "carving on a Norman font..." in an Adelaide church.


Isabel N SILVA b. 1889 Sydney d. ??

Parents Joseph J & Catherine S.

Married FERRARIO ??

Please see what you can find. Thanks.

Dave
 
Hello crankypants,

Death # 4826/1962 FERRARIO ISABEL JOSEPH CATHERINE RYDE

I may not be the right death.

EDIT: This marriage would explain the parents in the above record:

4979/1881 FERRARIO JOSEPH ADAMS CATHERINE WAGGA WAGGA

Can't check it in NLA. Only deaths there are for a Mrs. Alice and a Lucy Sophia.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave

I've run out of ideas, could the 'N' (Isabel N) be an error. Found this marriage, a daughter of Joseph SILVA, what do you think.

The Sydney Morning Herald... Thursday 30 May 1907

Hello crankypants,

Thanks for looking.

I agree the middle initial N may be an error. Considering the marriage I found it looks as though that death in 1962 is not hers.

There are two things against it being her in that marriage to WESTLAKE.

Birth # 1246/1886 SILVA ELIZABETH M JOSEPH J CATHERINE S SYDNEY

Birth # 1613/1889 SILVA ISABEL N JOSEPH J CATHERINE SYDNEY

She is not the youngest daughter. Isabel has a sister 3 years older, Elizabeth Maud. Also, I'm not sure if Alexandria is correct but perhaps a 1913 E/R for Joseph will determine that.

1930 & 1936 N.S.W Electoral Roll – Reid – Bankstown North
SILVA Joseph John, Canberra, Little road, Bankstown, labourer

Regards,

Dave
 
Hello crankypants,

There are lots of other married Joseph SILVAs in NSW but I can't find the birth in NSW of a second Isabel or a remarriage or death for Isabel WESTLAKE. :confused:

Dave
