Thanks Geoff.

Death 4 Feb 1924/C0497 William Miller Morrison - William Morrison - Jane Burke

Father must also be William Miller but I can't find a death before 1922 for William Miller senior.

Jane nee Burke must be Jane H. G.
... mother of William (Chillagoue Q. ...
That has to be the William who died in 1924. Middle name is Miller from birth of Mary Jane.

Death 1956/C4466 David Miller Morrison - William - Jane Burt

Death 1966/B82228 Jean Arney - William Morrison - Jeannie Burt

Can't find a death for Robert or Thomas.

Can't find the marriage for Jean Morrison to Arney.

Can't find the marriage for Mary Morrison to Cragg.

Must have been born after William to die in 1956 and 1966.

Thanks Geoff.

Been up since 4 am. Got a call my father was returned to hospital emergency. :eek:

Must be a death without the middle name for William senior.

Wonder if William junior was the only one born in Scotland.

William Miller Morrison 1919 Queensland Kennedy
Julia Morrison 1919 Queensland Kennedy

Julia Morrison 1925 Queensland Kennedy

It points to a death between 1918 and 1922 but the deaths in Qld. all have names that don't fit.

William Campbell
James William
William Alexander
William John

Townsville Daily Bulletin (Qld. : 1907 - 1954) Wed 8 Feb 1922 Page 4
DEATH.
MILLER-MORRISON.—On Febru-
ary 5th, 1922, at the residence
of her daughter, Mrs Robt. Cragg,
Subiaco, W. A. in her 80th year,
Jane, the relict of the late Wil-
liam Miller-Morrison.
(Deeply regretted.)

... late of Townsville ...
Can't find anything yet in Townsville paper.

Jane Miller Morrison 1925 Queensland Lilley

Jane died 1922 in WA.

Mary Cragg then Mary Elizabeth Cragg in Perth Division.

+ Robert Wadeson Cragg

Where is the marriage?

This is making no sense.

Death
Cragg Mary Elizabeth Female 77 David Jean Fremantle 145 1960


No births in Qld. to William senior & Jane nee Burke.

Australia, City Directories, 1845-1948
Mrs. Jane M Morrison
Gender: Female
Residence Year: 1921
Residence Place: Queensland
[Warburton Street or Kennedy Street, looks as though Kennedy Street cuts through, so likely to be Warburton Street]

'Mrs' is interesting if correct. Though looks to be Jane Miller/ar
