Marriage 29 Apr 1893/C0013 McGrath Samuel - Horn Rosie Lena

Death 9 Dec 1952/C05400 McGrath Samuel - Samuel Edward McGrath - Rose Horne

The Longreach Leader (Qld.) - Fri 19 Dec 1952 p.2
OBITUARY.
MR S. E. McGRATH.
The Stonehenge district lost one of its oldest and most respected residents by the death in Rockhampton on 9th December of Mr. Samuel Edward McGrath at the age of 59, following a short illness.
The late Mr. McGrath was born in Longreach, the eldest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. S. E. McGrath,

Birth for Samuel junior? Should be abt 1893. ?

Also looking for deaths of Samuel senior and Rose/Rosie/Rosa.

Thanks,

Dave

I just can not find the birth for Samuel around 1893 give or take a few years.
This is the only birth i can find for the family which is his brother.

1896 C45 Albert Francis McGrath -- Samuel -- Rosa Lena Horn
