Something to ponder..

There is a marriage
9115/1901 PARK GEORGE A/PERDRIAU CLARA DRUMMOYNE

Not an obvious death for a George A until 1946 :rolleyes:

Geoff

EDIT: There are a number of offspring in the Index..

Parents on death reg are the adopted parents

Death 26932/1938 GILLIES NELLA - JOHN - CLARA - BURWOOD


I'm confused because Nella/Nellie was the daughter of Robert B Kirkland and adopted by brother John. But Robert died in 1936

Death 10521/1936 KIRKLAND ROBERT BIRKMYRE - ROBERT - MARY - MARRICKVILLE * 12 Apr 1936

Birth 19559/1895 KIRKLAND NELLIE - ROBERT - MARY R - SYDNEY

But this marriage does not fit with mother as a Mary R. ??

Marriage 2165/1890 KIRKLAND ROBERT B - CLARK JANE B - BALMAIN


There is also an error in one of the obits for John in that Nellie is listed as married to a Robert Gillies when it's actually Ronald, older brother of Kenneth James.

This one then
Marriage 5439/1886 KIRKLAND ROBERT - RICHARDSON MARY R - TAREE

Then Robert B marries using just Robert and there is another Robert B.

Must be this one
Death KIRKLAND MARY REBECCA 12013/1938 ALFRED ANN - BURWOOD

The Sydney Morning Herald - Sat 18 Jun 1938 p.10
DEATHS
KIRKLAND.—June 17, 1938 (suddenly), at 27
David Street, Croydon, Mary Rebecca Kirkland, be-
loved mother of Pearl, Claude, Gladys, and Nellie,
aged 71 years.

Wonder why Nellie was adopted by brother John.
