I've got the right death and the right siblings:

The Sydney Morning Herald - Saturday 20 July 1963 p.72
DEATHS
JOHNSTON, David Leslie.-July 18, 1963, of 52 Glebe Street, Glebe, dearly loved husband of Vera, loved father of Veronica, David and Leslie and fond brother of Eleanor and William, aged 56 years.


We might have to rely on tracing the children.
They may have looked apart in 1963 if David had died and Vera had moved to another property :rolleyes:

We need an age, unless you know he was a sibling of David Sr.
Don't know anything yet. Will look that one up in the SMH archive.

No age. Married to Gwen. Son of Alfred and brother of Edith.

Died after Nov 1984 so not in the BMD.


So that is curious that Mervyn and Gwen are living with a David Leslie.

Making no progress with SHEPPERD/SHEPPHERD/SHEPHERD re marriage or deaths.


Marriage 9910/1925 NICHOLLS WILLIAM G - SHEPHERD VERA M - SYDNEY

I suggested 2nd marriage for one or both.


Can't find a birth for Vera or marriage or death of her parents.

Can't find a death for William or a divorce.
