1903 NSW Electoral Roll - PARKES - AUBURN POLLING-PLACE
SANDS Jane West, Alice-street, home duties

2nd marriage for Jane:

NSW 2488/1908 JENKINS THOMAS J - COOK JANE W - PARRAMATTA

1913 NSW Electoral Roll - GRANVILLE - AUBURN POLLING-PLACE
1582 JENKINS Jane West, Hampstead-road, domestic duties

1913 NSW Electoral Roll - GRANVILLE - AUBURN POLLING-PLACE
1587 JENKINS Thomas Joseph, Sheffield-street, labourer


NSW Divorces 0216 1921 JENKINS Jane West JENKINS Joseph

Death 27336/1940 JENKINS JANE WEST - JAMES - CATHERINE - MARRICKVILLE

One query: date of death and place of burial

Not in Ryerson - Can't find a notice in TROVE

No burial found for Jane at ROOKWOOD, WAVERLEY, SOUTH HEAD or MACQUARIE PARK cemeteries.

Next query: can the various Thomas Joseph JENKINS be sorted out to find the one who married Jane?

Not close enough to a main line to be worth the cost of the marriage certificate.

Thanks,

Dave

This Thomas appears to be in Parramatta from 1900 - 1906 and would fit with marriage place. The others are in different locations.

Name/Business Name: Thomas Jenkins

If this is him we get an approximate DOB and Occ.

Trivia...

Jane is no stranger to divorce, looks as though she divorced her first husband also...

The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) 22 February 1899

Quote
DECREES ABSOLUTE.
His Honor made absolute the decrees nisi in the
following suits and declared the marriages dis-
solved :— Jane West Cook versus Joseph James Wil-
cox Cook (with the custody of the child), and Mich-
ael Tobin versus Margaret Tobin (G. Mottram co-
respondent). End Quote

Thanks Geoff.

Thanks gibbo.

In 1913 E/R he is a labourer. I think that would be the right one in Granville.

I can't find a tree for any of them.

If that is the correct Thomas in 1910, his occ. could be almost anything.. He may have just took work as available :rolleyes:

I don't suppose he can be found in 1901?

We have two and possibly 3x Thomas Joseph. I think we can rule the one in Lithgow out. The other one married in 1926 which is after the divorce. So we need to prove he is or is not the one who married Jane.

I don't think we would have 2x Thomas Joseph both involved in divorce cases for desertion. Any ref then would be the one who married Jane.

The one who married Lily in 1926 but no age at death. Can a birth be found with those parents?

Death 26402/1967 JENKINS THOMAS JOSEPH - THOMAS JOSEPH - MARY JANE - ST LEONARDS

Birth 2907/1902 JENKINS THOMAS J - THOMAS - MARY J - GLEBE

That's not the one who married Jane because he was born abt 1873.

We will have to consider all Thomas Joseph and Joseph Thomas. Can't rely on birth, marriage, E/R and death reg being consistent for an individual.
