Mary Elizabeth Griffiths known as May was born in Noumea 5 October 1921. She was the daughter of Edward Griffiths who was a Welsh man and Mary Payne born in Australia. Her father Edward mined for Chrome in Noumea but later returned to Sydney.
May was married twice. To her first husband (no name) she had two daughters YVONNE AND FRANCIS. With her 2nd husband LAURIE FLOYD she had a daughter SUSAN who was an Equestrian.
Laurie and May lived in Millionaires Row/Canal Gold Coast. I think May died in Paradise Waters Queensland Australia. One of her daughters either Yvonne or Francis was a school teacher or married to a school teacher (possibly English) and lived in either Orange or Griffiths.
Her daughter SUSAN FLOYD lived at some time in Nerang Queensland. Susan was an Equestrian.
May's sister Peggy died in Brisbane in September 1997.
Would love to make contact with Yvonne, Francis or Susan.
