On 24 January 1916 Harris, who had served for twelve months in the militia, enlisted in the AIF giving his occupation as ‘blacksmith’. On 26 February he married, in accordance with the forms of the Presbyterian Church, Mabel, the daughter of a farmer, William Norton, and his wife, Elizabeth, née Shiring.

Death 2409/1969 Harris Mabel Meta Female 78 William Elizabeth - Perth

Looking for the marriage of William NORTON & Elizabeth SHIRING and birth of a daughter Mabel Meta and their deaths.

William was a farmer in Western Australia in 1916.

Thanks,

Dave

A death for Elizabeth NORTON 1892 - 1893? Not one in the index in Vic.

John was a Senator so you would expect his bio to be accurate re wife's maiden name - HERE

If 1893 is the right and only marriage why where children born and registered before that date registered as NORTON and not under the mother's name?
