Something not right here :rolleyes:

I wonder if the whole family returned to Queensland.

I'll have to start checking Qld. BMD.

Problem here:

1962 B50796 Ada Harriet Clark - Edward John Martinelli - Harriet Rebecca Blackwell

Perhaps they all didn't return to Qld.
No go here:

1959 C5749 Alice Amelia Head - Uriah Hill - Christiana Fredericka Neilsen

The deaths in Qld. don't fit. I can't find any of the three children's deaths in Qld. using just given name and mother - ruth.

Ok, none returned to Qld.
