hi eilsjo,

I found a marriage announcement in The Argus (Melbourne) that read:
BROPHY - BUTLER - On the 6th January 1921 at St Mary's Star of the Sea, West Melbourne (nuptial mass) by the Rev. James BROPHY (brother, relative ??), Joseph Lawless, seventh son of Mrs. and the late Thomas P. Brophy, Northcote (late of Stawell), to Eileen, younger daughter of William P. and the late Mrs BUTLER, of Wonthaggi
