Patricia Monkton

Journal by jmmace

I am looking for any information regarding my grandmother Patricia Monkton (maiden name). She was married to Desmond Macey. She took her own life at age 28 leaving 4 young children. At the time of her death (around 1956/57) she was living in Moree Nsw. She was buried in Inverell Nsw. I think she had 5 sisters & 1 brother - I am sure 1 or more of her sisters are alive today. Their names may be - Renie, grace, mari (spelling may not be correct).

Looked at your post above re your grandmother Patricia Monckton marrying Desmond Macey in Moree NSW. In my family tree there is also a connection to the name Macey and to Moree, as a cousin of mine (her grandfather was a nephew of my great grandmother) her maiden name was Macey and she married a John Collins in Moree in 1928. Her name was Lila Mary (Topsy) Macey, and she and her husband John had 5 children. The parents of Lila nee Macey were Garrett Baston Macey and Thelma Adelaide nee Stevens, they married in Moree NSW in 1928, and Lila (Topsy) was born 22/11/1928, and she married John Collins in Moree. I could not find a Desmond Macey listed in their family, but the coincidence of another Macey being married in Moree, and no certainty that we have all those named Macey included in our tree (it has been a work in progress for nearly 40 years now) We do know that Lila had siblings named Aubrey David Macey, Jeffrey Francis Macey, Helena Margaret Macey, Ivan Macey, Nola Macey, Olive Macey, Carol Macey, Kathleen Thelma Macey, Linda Grace Macey but we can find no Desmond, but it is possible that either we do not yet have records of all the children of Garrett and Thelma, or that Desmond Macey is from another branch of the father of Lila, Garrett Macey, perhaps a brother of his, or the son of a brother of Garrett. One of our searches at present is to find any connection to the name given to Lila, as it is not a common name, but it appears to occur regularly in my family now, it was the name of my Mum, it is my name, we have given it as a second name to our two daughters, and we now wonder if it perhaps came originally from the Macey side who married into our ancestors, so if you have a Lila in your tree, please put a post here or send me a private message, Thank You.
