Jessie Rachel Ann Thornton part 2

Journal by lavishka

So what DO I know from my researching that could aide in the finding of her grave.

Jessie was born 18/10/1898. Her birth certificate says she was born in Moss Vale, Killarney, QLD. Her parents are Robert Thornton Lightfoot (1852 - 04/03/1933) and Sarah Annie Clara Lightfoot (Nee Dawson) Jessies parents met and were married in Glen Innes on 22/02/1893

Jessie had 3 brothers. Robert Charles, George Edward and Albert Graham John.

She attended Killarney State School and was registered 18/01/1904
There is no name of parent. Just says occupation is Carpenter. Her siblings also attended the school and the their dad, Robert, was listed as parent, and as a carpenter.

Her religion was Church of England

she attended school on and off until 1908.

My next information on her is that she married a man named Francis Thomas Slatter. I have a large amount of information on him and his family. They married 14 May 1921, Allora QLD, Australia.

Jessie then had 3 sons.
Arthur was born 18 Dec 1922
Frank was born 19 Dec 1924
Albert was born in 1925

On the electoral roll in both 1925 and 1930.

In 1925 her address is different to that of her husbands.

Sometime between 1928 -1930 she left her family. Never seeing her sons again

I have a QLD police gazette report, of a theft taking place on Ford street allora. A Mr Leslie Devereaux was wanted as an identified Suspect for the theft of 2 sulky wheels and personal possesions. Says that he was beleived to be in the company of Jessie Rachel Slatter who was wanted for dessertion of her family. The theft took place on 12/12/1930.

The last information I have on her is on her fathers death certificate it says living children and all 4 children are accounted for as living. So jessie is obviously listed as being alive. This was in March of 1933.

There are so many theories about what could have, might have and should have happened. What I have listed here are the actual FACTS that I have.

Any information on her life is desperately wanted as her granddaughter and I are wanting to find her.
