Hi, I notice you have done some research on the above people who are my great great grandparents. I have some additional information on one of their children - William Uren who you think was born in 1911

NOTE I have since adjusted William's birth date
- see 1st son above of:
1871 - 1950 William Alfred Ernest Uren
- born in Ballarat, Victoria
- William married Henrietta GREEN (1875-1942) about 1896
