Wonder if this is him as father’s death notice has him as Jim…

The Advertiser – Sat 9 May 1953
To Mary & Jim Barraclough at Calvary on 6 May a daughter – Cathryn.
Thanks Val.


There are two different Barraclough families. Mine appear in Qld., NSW, Vic. and SA. The other appears in far western NSW and in Vic. and not sure about SA.

Ok that other family is in SA as well as there are marriages in 1919 and 1923 in SA that don't fit my tree.
Jim & Mary had:
Had a Helen sept 2 1951 Glenelg & Christine in May 1954

on his papers - has ex wife applied for his service record after he died.. so a divorce in there somewhere too...
Thanks Val.

Divorce? Now I notice his death reg does not list his wife.

I have one Barraclough who also ended up in SA. Seems he married and divorced three times but many pieces of that puzzle still missing.

I'll got to that one tomorrow.
Info I posted here taken and used on that site.

Info there that is not correct.

A son that does not belong is listed born 1915 with his father listed as having died in 1909.

So, so annoying that people pinch some stuff and don't check the relationships and add parents and children who can't fit.
