Welcome Maree50.

I noticed a few marriages for a Joseph JARVIS in W.A.

Would save a bit of time if you know the name of Joseph's wife.

Joseph's wife is Selena d.19.1.1883. I think Joseph was a pensioner Guard.

Thank-you so much for your information. Joseph Jarvis is my Great Grandfather. My Grandmother was his daughter Edith. I know only that she met my Grandfather in W.A. Had two children there and returned to N.S.W. and had my Mother and three others. Does anyone know about where he came from. I know nothing about my Great Grandmother Selena. Thank-you janilye.

Hi Janilye, Thanks for all your help. My mother was Annie Wilce. I have done some family tree on the Wilce side, but just did not know where to start with my Grandmother's side (Jarvis/Peters). My mother said that Selina was a lot younger then Joseph. My Grandmother would have been about 3 years old when she died. Thanks again for giving me your time. Regards . Maree.

Age: 92 years.
Buried: Karrakatta Cemetery, Western Australia.
Area: Roman Catholic.
Section: PC.

Bridget's age recorded in the cemetery records of 92 years apppears to be correct. Her age recorded as 99 years in the Death Register must be a typo or informant error.

Note Bridget's second given name of Catherine.
The correct spelling may be Katherine, aka Kate.

Dear Maree50

I have posted some information from my own family tree research here.


[the link is just a convenient one for me to use for this purpose]

My connection is via Selina Frances, wife of H H Clemens, mother of Harry, Victor and Arthur Clemens. Died 1 February 1956, aged 88 years.

Unfortunately I know very little of the links back beyond this to South Africa (although I have emailed a friend there to see if anything turns up).

Hope it helps your own searching etc.

Hi, Just wondering if anyone on this thread knows any information on John Fitzpatrick who married Ellen Jarvis? In particular, where he was born. There are so many John Fitzpatrick's and it's hard to find the right one. He is my husband's great, great, great grandfather. Any help to be pointed in the right direction is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
