Looking for information on the HARRISON FAMILY from FORBES/PARKES/CONDOBLIN NSW

Journal by Lockey

John William Harrison born around(1880) married Alice Flynn (1880-1955)in Condoblin in 1900. They had several children,Elizabeth M (b1902) Temora, Alice Janet (b1901) Condoblin, John Edward (b1906 Temora,Thomas Hugh Harrison (b1908) Temora, Harvey (b1912) unsure where and Mavis I think born 1918. It has been noted that Mavis died a very tragic death in 1929 at Parkes. I am unsure of other children.I am looking for history on the family and where they might have come from. Thomas Hugh Harrison was my father.

I have found the death record of John William and listed on that as his father is WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON but no mother listed? Does this link iwth anyones records.

I have just found out that John William was born in Victoria as to the place I am having trouble working out the person writing. The end part of the name of the town is either ....uratha or ...rmatha and the beginning commences with either an M,N,U not fully sure does this ring a bell wiht anyone.

Hello Lockey
My name is Kevin and we appear to have common ancestors - i.e. Thomas and Elizabeth Flynn. The Alice Flynn who married John Harrison is the sister of my Grandmother Charlotte (aka Margaret) Flynn, who married William Charles Smith in 1905.

Whilst my mother recalls seeing/meeting John Harrison, when she was a child, she has no relevant information about his birth details.

I was wondering if you have any information about Elizabeth Flynn - her marriage certificate shows her maiden name as "Cotter", her death certificate shows her father's name as Edward. All indications are that she was born about 1855.

Can you shed any light?

Thanks

Hello Kevin

Yes I do have some information on Margaret Charlotte Flynn known as Lottie and she was married to William Smith and is my Grandmother Alice Harrison (nee Flynns) sister. Charlotte is after my G.G.Grandmother who was married to John Thomas Flynn, their son Thomas married Elizabeth Cotter on the 15th of April 1873 and are the parents of Alice and Margaret Charlotte along with several other children. I do have some more infomation which I was fortunate enough to come into via a third cousin on the Flynns, if you would like this information you can contact me. This would make your Grandmother my Great Aunt and Do hope this helps warm Regards Susan
