Looking for information on Isabella Beatrice Leech

Query by BobEvans

Hi All,
This lady is a bit evasive, she:
Reported to marry one John Alexander Stuart about 1884.
Had several children at a place called Mount Korong, in Victoria, Australia
John died 1924 in Inglewood, Victoria, Australia
Have followed the children.
However the wife's death continues to elude me.
I have no Parents for her either.

Any assistance would be gratefully recieved.

Regards, Bob

Thanks steve74,
Not James, should be John, he was named after his father, it really should be recorded as John Alexander Jr., as it appears his fathers' middle name was also Alexander.

Steve74,
Can you help me a bit further?
(Daughter of J.A.Stuart) Mary Alicia Stuart 1895 - 1980
Married ??? Laird
Had two(2) Children by him
And then seems to dissapear.
I realise that he may be too recent to retrieve data, but what research I have been able to do, "seems" to indicate that he may have died in WW1, and that she remarried again, to a M.W.Brown and had another child.
Regards, Bob

Hi Tonkin,

Thanks Bob.

Have two deaths for you.

DEATH.
Name: Sinclair LAIRD.
Died: 1961, Bendigo, Victoria.
Age: 79 years.
Father: Donald LAIRD.
Mother: Isabel DITCHUM.
Ref: VDI #18944.

If this is the same Sinclair LAIRD married to Mary Alicia STUART in 1921 he never died in WW1.

DEATH.
Name: Mary Alicia LAIRD.
Died: 1980, Dandenong, Victoria.
Age: 84 years.
Father: John STUART.
Mother: Isabella unknown.
Ref: VDI Reg #06612.

This appears to be the death of your Mary Alicia LAIRD, nee STUART, but I'm not sure why her death is recorded under LAIRD, if she remarried to M W BROWN.

No, you are correct, my research was obviously floored, it would seem that she did not re-marry.
As my dates were referring to a much earlier time(1916/1918), so I thank you once again.
I just thought I was "stuck" (brain freeze??) and once again people like Steve74 and yourself come along and pull out the proverbial "rabbit from the hat."

Thank you & steve74 for your assistance.

WOW!! I was close, I thought that Kenneth was the husband of Mary and had been killed in the War.
WOW!1, how about that, I do know she later re-married to a M.W.Brown and had a child by him.
But little did i know it was in fact his brother. Excellent work. :)

Thank you, steve74.
