Here are a few details from my database that may assist you.

Florence Emily's maiden name was LEACH, or at least that is the name she was recorded as in the records. These are the detals I have for her children.

William Mervyn LEACH.
b.1895 Millbrook, Victoria.
d.1981 heidelberg, Victoria, aged 86 years.
m.1928 Margaret Jean SQUIRE.

Alfred LEACH.
b.1897 Learmonth, Victoria.
d.1897 Learmonth. No age recorded.

Albert Sydney LEACH.
b.1899 Ballarat, Victoria.
d. ?
m.1935 Elsie May REDWOOD.

Edwin Ernest LEACH.
b.1901 Ballarat, Victoria.
d.1937 Fitzroy, Victoria, aged 34 years.

Eva Margaret LEACH.
b.1904 Learmonth, Victoria.
d.1985 Macclesfield, Victoria, aged 82 years.
m.1937 George WILLIAMS.

Elsie May Matilda LEACH.
b.1907 Learmonth, Victoria.
d.1940 Swan Hill, Victoria, aged 32 years.
m.1932 Edward James SPARKES.

This Florence Emily LEACH is a problem for me. I have not been able to locate a marriage for her, and only a few of the births for her children name the father as William or William James LEACH.

Hope this helps for now.

Thank you so much for this information, i had a feeling that Florence Emily was also a Leach.

I pretty sure you are already aware of this information i am about to give you but i going to tell you anyway as someone might read it and find it useful.

On William Mervin Matilida WW1 Records he list his NOK as Mrs.H Goldsmith. I also found a death Record for a Florence Emily Goldsmith, who list her father as Henry Leach and Sarah Rachel Simons.

My Grandma also told me that one of Edward James Sparkes' borthers married either a half-sister or a step-sister of one of his two wifes, however she could not remember which one on both accounts of wives and brothers. I believe that Albert Sparkes was also married to a Goldsmith.

I am really new to all this family history reserach so i not sure if i going about posting this is the right way or not.
Once again Thank you so much

My grandma told me tha
