Thanks Geoff.

I was trying to match burials for two other Denis but nothing fits.

Birth 1880 C1953 Richard Grimes Martin - Denis - Sarah Helen Brown

MARTIN SARAH ELLEN Details Unrecorded Unrecorded 67 Years 23-07-1963 Toowong Cemetery Burial Location 24-15-11/12

Matching burial for Denis ?

That can't fit either if age 67 is correct.

MARTIN ANNE Unrec Unrec 0 ? 12-04-1887 Toowong Cemetery Burial Location 7-81-22

MARTIN DENIS DILLON Unrec Unrec 0 ? 28-04-1915 Toowong Cemetery Burial Location 7-81-22

The only match I've found so far but we have 4x Denis.

If Denis Dillon is the right one then Dillon only appears in the burial record. Not on births of 5 children.

Will have to start tracing children.

There is this, Larkin must be from from mother's side..

Dennis Larkin Martin
Birth Date: 30 Jul 1881
Birth Place: Queensland
Registration Year: 1881
Registration Place: Queensland, Australia
Father: Dennis Martin & Mother: Annie Murphy
Page Number: 9294

Thanks Geoff.

It's the right Denis in 1915. Rather curious re middle name.

Martin not Murphy side - Ellen Larkin.

Also one I didn't have

1879 C4593 Ellen Teresa Martin - Dennis - Annie Murphy

Death 1922 B38501 Mary Ellen Dyke - Denis Martin - Anne Murphy
Thanks Geoff.

Only the burial record so far.

Back in 15 min. Got to water the garden.

Death 2 Mar 1946/B5688 Martin Margaret - Joseph McConkey - Jane Hudson

Now looking for any info on Joseph & Jane.

Can't see deaths in Qld. for Joseph & Jane.

Marriage 12 May 1890/B14068 Martin Patrick Joseph - McConkey Margaret

Margaret may have arrived without parents. Born abt 1858.
