Nicholas John Old and Grace Ann Hooper were married in Melbourne in 1874. MRN 1562. Though it says Launceston on the Pioneers CD. SO not sure about the location.

Martha 1879 at Dookie. BRN 8630.
William John 1881 at Devenish. BRN 15698.

Lives of the children are as follows-
Mary Ann Old married Frederick William Berthun at Devenish in 1901 MRN 5864.
They went on to have three children - William John born 1902,
George Raymond 1904,
Daisy Lavenia 1906.
All were born in Wangaratta.
Though on the listing it shows the father of Daisy as being Albert Edward Berthun not Frederick William Berthun. Which is very strange.
Lavinia Sophia Old married John Beggs at Boxwood in 1909. MRN 9048
William John Old married Mary Elizabeth Beggs in the same year and place. MRN 7415
This might be a case of a brother and sister marrying a sister and brother.
Gertura Ivy Theresa had a son Albert in Ballarat East in 1917.
