Thanks,

Doesn't matter how much I play with the names and dates I still cant find a birth for Samuel jnr.
The family started out in VIC so I checked there as well and found nothing for his birth.

No family notices neither.

Found a public tree and it has this for Jr. birth, not validated..

"Birth
13 Nov 1893 • Stonehenge, Central Queensland, Australia"

Minor issue, his age at death makes his YoB 1891?

His parents married 1893, so I checked for his birth under mother's maiden name and found nothing.
