Hello crankypants,

I'd like a look up please in the Sands Directories and ER for William McCALLUM and spouse Cordelia Annie. You should find them in Division of Martin in 1930.

The married in Glebe in 1887 and Annie died in 1931 in Burwood. So far I can't find William's death reg. I don't have his parents and he was probably born in Scotland.

Thanks,

Dave
 
Hi Dave

Not able to find William in 1936. So did he die before 1936 or interstate, doubt it? (3 William McCALLUM’s in 1936 Blacksmith,Enfield - Farmer, Epping – Miner, Cessnock)

Hello crankypants,

Thank you. Looks like William died between 1932 and 1936 if he stayed not far from Sydney but this is the only one:

7756/1934 MCCALLUM WILLIAM B GEORGE MARGARET CAMDEN


Daughter Emma Margaret married Charles Percy FURNER on 11 Mar 1911 at Glebe.

They both died in Camden. Interesting, so maybe...

Please look for Charles and Emma in the ER.

Thanks.

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. There are hundreds of FURNERS in my tree (my grandmother is a FURNER) and they are all over the Camden, Goulburn, Crookwell, Hillston, Wagga Wagga, and Narrandera areas with lots of brothers in business together.

I was hoping William may have been with daughter Emma and Perch in 1936. The other two are daughters.

Thanks. I won't follow the FURNER line just now. I'll follow the notes I've made instead.

Regards,

Dave
