Typical, found a tree using Ezra and has no child named William Henry. Mabel, Sarah Russell and Alfred Eugene are among the offspring.

This is interesting from the tree..

"Marriage to Julietta Elizabeth Taylor
1864
Age: 34
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
MARRIAGE On the 20th Instant, at 105 Prince Street, by Special License by the Rev. John Reid of the Mariners Church, Ezra Jones, batchelor, Native of America, to Julietta Taylor, eldest daughter of James Taylor or George St Sydney." Also says he was b. East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA, not validated.

Oh! The tree has Alfred Eugene b. Fiji
"Birth
1879
15 Dec
Kanathea, Northern Fiji, Fiji"

If correct, possible that Henry was b. there also :rolleyes:

Another child for Ezra William Jones & Julietta Elizabeth nee Taylor.

Caroline Dinah Jones b ? married Edward Grundy 1907 Picton NSW and died 29 Aug 1951 Qld (parents correct) on ER's she is Caroline Dianna Grundy.

Camden News Thurs 31 Jan 1907 – GRUNDY – JONES
A very interesting and pleasing ceremony took place at St Luke’s Church The Oaks on January 1st 1907 when Miss Caroline Jones, fourth daughter of the late William Ezra Jones was married to Mr Edward Grundy, eldest son of Mr E Grundy of The Oaks. The bride was given away by her brother Mr A E Jones etc etc.

Ada Arabella Jones b Fiji died 1958 Chatswood NSW – married James Oswald Moore 1891 Camden NSW – her death has father’s name as William & Mum as Julia
death of her husband SMH Fri 4 July 1947 MOORE James Oswald – July 2 1947 at Lidcombe, beloved husband of Ada and loving father of Oswald, Milton, Stanley and Mary (Mrs F Hutley) aged 81 years.
Buried C of E Rookwood.

So some of the kids swapped Dad's name around from Ezra to William...

I have lots of MOOREs in Glenmore, The Oaks, Lower Minto and Camden but not a Charles Green or a James Oswald.

Miriam's brother Arthur:
