Seeking any family members of Jane SHAW's siblings

My maternal Granny Jane SHAW: father William SHAW 1812-1885 born Tipperary & Mary Jordan 1820-1885. Both died at Harrow. I believe Jane had 7 siblings, William, James, Mary Ann, Margaret, Ellen, Bridget Amelia & Catherine. Hopefully any descendants of these may have photos of Jane's childhood etc,also maybe newspaper clippings etc.
Jane married Henry Wiliam Burns. Then having been widowed with 3 young children, married John Francis Pretlove.
My father Gordon Henry urns was from her 1st marriage.

Do any PRETLOVE ( John ) family members have photos of Granny Jane, & her 3 children from marriage to Henry William Buns ?

My father Gordon Henry BURNS was only a baby when his mother was widowed. Other siblings were Mary Burns(Wilks)& Henry William Burns. I have never seen a photo of Granny Jane & only me her once as a small child. Likewise I have never seen any childhood photos of my Dad Gordon.
Photo was taken at Aunty Mary's 80th birthday a Benayeo. It shows Mary, Gordon, Lilian & the Pretlove brothers, Harry, Perc. & George.
I would appreciate so much if any photos are still around.

Birthplace of Josephine Alphonse SHAW.

I only know she was born in 1903 in ? Victoria. Her parents John Francis SHAW & Ellen GALLAGHER were married in the RC church in Hamilton, Victoria & at a later stage lived in Mount Gambier. I'm interested to know where in Victoria & if perhaps the family moved elsewhere before moving to Mount Gambier. She was later the 1st wife of my father Gordon Henry BURNS, born in Edenhope, Victoria. They were married in 04/02/1920 & lived in Mount Gambier until she passed away in St Vincent's hospital, Melbourne, Victoria.
Any small missing detail appreciated as it fills in significant part of my father's life too.

My great grandfather Karl Ockar Schiefer was born in Crimmitschau Sachsen Germany 29 September 1881. He died in Kleinhessen, Sachsen Germany on 15 March 1921. How can I find more descendants. 1.

On 29 July He married Wilhemine Leithold born 29 September 1853 in Tonehausen. She died on 4 January 1916. Thes details were in trace made about 30 years ago and I seem unable to get any further in the present. What is the best way to discover these ones from Germany, or maybe later descendants who migrated to other lands.

William Shaw & Mary Jordan: Burns family history

Like to find information about my great-grandparents William Shaw born 1779 Tipperary Ireland & Mary Jordan born19/03/1820 Wexford Ireland. They married Geelong Victoria 1841 I believe. Possibly William was a seaman ? Anyway would be great to know something of their early years in Ireland & wherever they landed & lived on arrival in Australia. Both died in 1885 & are buried in Harrow Victoria.

Background information for Jane Burns nee Shaw married Henry William Burns

Any newspaper items, photos etc about my paternal grandmother & life in those times.
I do know she was born 1860 in Hotspur Vic.also believe her parents William Shaw & Mary Shaw nee Jordan both died at Harrow Vic. Any info of them too would help fill in picture especially of my grandmother's early years.
