Several births in SA which I find quite curious. Trees have the marriage in Adelaide but I have found this although I can't find it in the NSW index. Frederick was a tailor.

Thanks Geoff.

I didn't have that appointment record.

Warialda is correct. Draper is a real mystery. No William Owen junior or a 2nd one in my tree.

I should have said that one [Draper] was Hurstville 1913...

Geoff
It's the right family - Ada = 2nd wife and two daughters from 1st marriage so draper is very odd. He moved to Hurstville to live with a married daughter.

Aged 65 in 1915 so did he retire from public service? He didn't have to retire in 1913 or earlier on account of age.

Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW : 1881 - 1940) Tue 9 Aug 1910 Page 4 Braidwood.
Mr. A. Newbery, the postmaster, has
been suffering again from his old complaint, lung
trouble, and has been confined to his bed. He is
now able to get about again, but has not been in the
office yet.

The initial is A but must be an error.

He retired in June 1911.

Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW : 1881 - 1940) Tue 20 Jun 1911 Page 4 BRAIDWOOD
Mr. Newbery, our retired Postmaster, left
Braidwood on Friday night for Sydney, where
he and his family, who left the night before,
intend to reside.

Thanks Geoff.

Not found in 1913 last time we looked. I didn't have the wedding notice last time - found today.

It has to be him in 1897 in Warialda but what is the event?

http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/102123837
Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW : 1881 - 1940) - Tuesday 2 April 1912 p.4
WEDDING.
A very pretty wedding was celebrated at Wattle Park Methodist Church on Wednesday, 28th February, the contracting parties being Mr. Fredric W. Newbery, eldest son of Mr. W. O. Newbery, Hurstville, and Miss Lavinia (Lily) M. Smith, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ellis Smith, of Woodgrove. The Rev. H. Fleming officiated, ... Mr. Charles A. Newbery, brother of the bridegroom, acted as bestman. ... en route to their new home at Cumnock after a short stay in Sydney. ...

District = Orange & Polling place = Cumnock ??

The births and deaths in Adelaide are a mystery - not all births and not all deaths can be found for some reason.

I'll resume this tomorrow.
