Hi Tonkin,
My friend, whose family tree I'm tracing, is descended from Obed Edward Tims, the father of the Obed in your information who married Ada Jane. Do you know if Obed the son left any issue, or anything about the Tims family in Australia. I believe that Obed (the son)'s sister Agnes Mary Tims also lived in Victoria, as her will was being proved there according to a 1946 edition of the Argus that I was able to view online. Do you know if any other siblings or relatives emigrated from Uk to Oz with Obed Jr and Agnes?
Thank you for any help you can give me

No issues for Obed and Ada that I could find.

Obed's sister, Agnes Mary TIMS, died 1946 in Malvern, Victoria, aged 73 years.

Obed's other sister, Mary Ann TIMS, died 1930 in Prahran, Victoria, aged 48 years.

There parents were names as Obed TIMS and Hebzibah GODDARD.

If I come across any other family members will let you know.

Thank you Tonkin, so three of the siblings moved to australia at some point then (whether together or one by one), so that only leaves two others, Eleanor Jane who I only have a baptism for and therfore presume to be an infant mortality, and their one half-sibling by Obed's 2nd marriage, Florence Mabel, who is my friend's great-grandmother.
