Following Thomas/Hy and Rose, they are together 1912-1915

Vic. E/R 1915
Rose Edith Henderson
Subdistrict: Nhill
District: Wannon
Address: Nhill
Occupation: Home Duties
[With Thomas, agent. Possibly a Robert, carpenter with them]

Thomas doesn't appear to be with Rose Edith after 1915..

Thanks Geoff.

Thomas Henry and Rose are no problem.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Wed 2 May 1934 p.12
HENDERSON.-April 25, 1934, at Sydney, Thomas Henry Henderson, late Insurance Inspector.

Death 1949 HENDERSON Rose Edith - Thomas Henry HENDERSON [DH] Norwood Book 741 p.2774

DH = Deceased Husband

Problems finding the right death for his father. The one reg that has a middle initial H for his father may be a clue = Hall or may be an error and he may have had no middle name.

Also having problems finding the right death for Richard Dickinson.

Yeah, seemed to make sense to check out their details at certain times, to avoid backtracking..

Vic. E/R 1903
Thomas Henderson
Subdistrict: Nhill
District: Wimmera
Image poor, there looks to be others including a possible Agnes..

Thanks Geoff.

I didn't have that 1903.

I presume Agnes moved from Nhill to Caulfield when Thomas died.

1905 is a bit clearer..

Vic. E/R 1905
Thomas Henderson
Subdistrict: Nhill
District: Wimmera
Residence Address: Balrootan
Occupation: Farmer

Not easy to distinguish the family, this is a partial copy for ID purposes..
