MORGAN Dorothy Patricia Death notice 17AUG1992 Death 65 late of Epping SMH 19AUG1992

If the children are listed in order then it seems all were born after 1926. So no proof there Lily was step-mother and that they were children of an earlier marriage for Thomas.

Thanks Val.

Thanks Geoff.

Thanks Rupert.

I'm trying to find where and when Essie's mother was born and if her maiden name was Jenkins.

It may be Newcastle, NSW and it may be JENKINS hence not Jane West SANDS just before her 2nd marriage:

2488/1908 JENKINS THOMAS J - COOK JANE W - PARRAMATTA ** 14 Mar 1908

There is a tree suggesting 1879 Newcastle, not validated - And gives these as parents..

"Meshach Julius Jenkins
1849 – 1926

Catherine Esther White
1854 –"

There is this birth..

Jane Jenkins
Birth Date: 1879
Father: Meshech Jenkins
Mother Catherine
Birth Place: New South Wales

This record is not for the comedian and comedienne members, especially the latter. I'm sure the transcriber made every effort to be correct. >:D :biggrin:

Index to Deceased Estate Files, 1923-1958
Name: Meshach Jenkins
Death Date: 2 Jun 1926
Residence Place: The ****
[The Spit]
Occupation: Retd Railway Employee
Civil Place: New South Wales, Australia

I see the word recognition software is working :biggrin:

Thanks Geoff.

Even if I get a copy of the 1926 marriage and it says Thomas was a widower it won't tell me the date or give me the name of his first wife.

Try from a different direction:

Birth 3279/1875 JENKINS THOMAS J - JEREMIAH - JOHANA - BALMAIN

Death 10112/1903 JENKINS JEREMIAH J - PATRICK - MARY - GRANVILLE

JENKINS Jeremiah Funeral notice 21JUL1903 Funeral late of Auburn Sydney Morning Herald 21JUL1903

Death 2077/1914 JENKINS JOHANNAH - JOHN - MARY - GRANVILLE

JENKINS Johannah Death notice 12JAN1914 Death 73 late of Auburn Sydney Morning Herald 14JAN1914

What can be found for that Thomas? Thomas is listed in Jeremiah's Funeral notice but not in Johanna's. No death in NSW 1903 - 1914 for a Thomas with those parents.

Death 11184/1922 JENKINS JOHN P - JEREMIAH - JOHANNAH - LITHGOW

Death 8460/1926 JENKINS WILLIAM A - JEREMIAH - JHANNAH - MOREE

No other JENKINS death in NSW to 1984 with those parents.

Thanks Rupert.

I was a long shot but it seems Essie was not the dau of Jane West COOK (nee SANDS) who married Thomas in 1908.
