Hello,

Thanks Geoff.

By 1968 he had cut down enough trees and made paper to become a newsagent. :biggrin:
 
Don't know. Separated, divorced, died...

1980 NSW Electoral Roll - Robertson - Killarney Vale
SANDS Bertrand James, 87 George Evans road, Klrny Vle, ----

Died 9 Oct 1981 in St John of God Hospital, Burwood age 79

I'l have to check the SMH on film for a death notice although there is no entry in Ryerson so there may not be one.
 
23620/1981 SANDS BERTRAND JAMES WILLIAM GEORGE ANNIE ELIZABETH

The sole tree I have found suggests his burial is "Catholic Lawn, Rockwood Cemetery"

Maybe she is there!
 
ROOKWOOD CEMETERY
NAME: Bertrand James Sands
AGE: 79
DEATH DATE: 9th October 1981
DENOMINATION: Catholic Mortuary 2 & 3
DETAILS: Section: Lawn 6, Row: 9, Grave: 310
INSCRIPTION: (None Stated)

99% of the SANDS are not RC so I suspect Katherine was.
 
Well now. :D Different cemetery.

Catholic Field of Mars

Sands Katherine Elizabeth 93 08/12/1999 LWN*STCHAR*ROWY**122 B

We have an age too. That is service date not date of death. B= burial.

So why not in the 1980 E/R ?

Any sign of Katherine ROBIN in E/R ?

Or is Catherine Ellen with Rollo?

Problem still remains. Two marriages for Katherine E and one birth reg.

Have to try and find what the other middle name is in 1923 marriage - Ellen or what?
 
Her name appears as Katharine from 1968

Katharine Elizabeth Sands
1980
New South Wales
Dist: Grayndler
Sub dist: Croydon Park
[On her own]
 
Ah. Thanks Geoff.

Marriage for parents of the one born Wellington.

10400/1901 GRAY NICHOLAS - HONE SARAH - WELLINGTON

Death 13634/1937 GRAY NICHOLAS - JOHN - CATHERINE - PETERSHAM

Not in Ryerson

I can't find a burial for Nicholas to see if it's RC or other.

Death 2862/1934 GRAY SARAH - LUKE - ELIZABETH J - PETERSHAM

Not in Ryerson

Oh, that theory goes out the window:

Rookwood
Presbyterian 6E 0000787 GRAY SARAH 05 Jan 1934

No Nicholas in Presbyterian 6E

Thanks Geoff.

Rollo died 1959 and C/Katherine Ellen 1966.

Is Katherine Ellen the spouse of Rollo?

Still can't tell. I can't find a notice in newspaper for either 1923 marriage.

I'd better check if Bertrand converted to RC because his mother was RC. His father wasn't.

Bertram's mother's mother was RC. Can't find a funeral notice or burial for Bertram's mother or father.
 
To confuse matters even further there is a Catherine Ellen Robin in Clovelly up to 1954, then in 1958 there are 2 of them at different addresses :confused:

Gonna sleep on it, speak soon..
 
We need a birth for 1 or 2 Catherine/Katherine/Katharine E GRAYs besides the one in Wellington.
