Looking for Janet Welch and her descendants.

Query by LizzieLou

My great Aunt Janet (Jeanette) Carmichael Welch was born 1869 in the Coleraine district Victoria Australia. She married Patrick Leonard 17th August 1887- he stated he was born in Adelaide. They had one son Archie Carmichael Leonard born 1887 Coleraine. I would like any information on Janet and Archie as they seem to have disappeared from all of our family history.

The only burial for the 13th is Patrick Peter Leonard.

Thank you so much for your response to my inquiry. I guess it is reasonable to assume that Janet Carmichael Welch died sometime after Archie Carmichael Leonard's birth in 1887 and Patrick Leonard's married in 1914. As for Archie, can't find him anywhere.

You would assume that. It would be worth having a look in Coleraine Cemetery where her family was from. I just find it strange that Archie and Jeanette disappear as Archie Carmichael Leonard is not a common name. There is a possibility that she re-married. Sorry, the date of burial for Patrick Peter is 13th September 1917
