The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Mon 1 Nov 1926
SMALL,.-October 31. 1926, at her daughter's resi-
dence, 290 Beamish-street, Campsie, Susan Elizabeth
Small, dearly loved-mother of May Matthews, of
Campsie, Mrs. Drummond, of Cessnock, George and
Percy Hillier, of Muswellbrook, aged 75 years.

Think I've solved the puzzle.

Susan had a daughter under her maiden name and she married a DRUMMOND, so Mary Gladys must be the granddaughter of Susan SMALL.

Birth

2nd Marriage

I can't find Mary Gladys born c1907 to mother Mary Ann Susan.

Thanks Rupert.

A lot of that would fit.

But Susan died in 1926 and the marriage to Drummond in 1933.


20 Feb 1942 looks to be the right death so another very late marriage.

William born 1881 but marriage was 1886.

Death 571/1908 FARR THOMAS EDWARD CHARLOTTE BALMAIN NORTH ?

Only a Funeral notice and no names.

Can't see a notice for 20 Feb 1942 death.

But that looks to be the Mary THOMPSON.

Birth 17704/1875 THOMPSON MARY ANN L - - SUSAN E - PATERSON

The initial L being an error for S.

1st Marriage
6842/1893 FARR THOMAS SHEPHARD MARY A T TAMWORTH

Another error with initial T?

Why would Mary call herself a SHEPHARD ?? Susan married in 1886 to HELLIER and then to SMALL.

If Mary was calling herself Drummond in 1926 so why marriage 1933 if Thomas died in 1908?

Thanks Geoff.

Catherine Hill Bay is between Sydney and Newcastle.

Can Mary Ann Susan be found in E/R?

It will fit if a few things are ignored. :biggrin:

I'm off for a few hours while it's not raining.

That must be it then Rupert with some strange things along the way.

Mary is using the name Shepherd in 1893. William didn't start using it until sometime between 1906 and 1915.

Mary calls herself Mrs Drummond in 1926 but marriage in 1933.

There are fiche at the State Library for NSW for the following years:
1906, 1908, 1909, 1915, 1916, 1917, 1921, 1922, 1925, 1926, 1928

I'll be there Wednesday to look at a newspaper taken out of storage on request for me.

Birth 32570/1894 HELLIER ELIZABETH M - FREDERICK - SUSAN E - TAMWORTH

Marriage 10565/1918 MATTHEWS VICTOR J - HELLIER ELIZABETH M - SYDNEY

1926 Susan is mother of May Matthews - so M = May

===

William's sister is a Mrs Maud Dillon in 1918 & 1919.

Can't see another daughter for Susan as Thompson or Hellier besides

25839/1883 HELLIER EMILY J - FREDERICK - SUSAN - NARRABRI

Thanks Rupert.

I think I have found something but will take a few more minutes.

1919 NSW Sands Directory
Mrs M Dillon 147 Devonshire st, Sydney

The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Sat 21 Apr 1917 p.1
FUNERALS
DILLON. - The Friends of Mrs. JOHN DILLON and
FAMILY are kindly invited to ultend the lmie
ral of 1er lite beloved HUSBAND and their FATHER,
vii ich will leave his real leuce 117 Devonshire street,
city, THIS AFTERNOON, at 1.45 o'clock, for Methodist
Ccuietcr}, Rookwood
JOSEPH MEDCALF, Undertaker,
Redfern and Leichhardt

Hard to read but it looks like 147 to me.

Can't see a John Dillon marriage that fits.
