Looking for Lorens Johnson

I am looking for Lorens Johnson, aged 22, who married Mary Ann Portlock in Castlemaine Vic 1859 - Lorens parents are recorded as Henry and Mary Ann Johnson and his place of birth is shown as Denmark. I am aware that a Lorens Johnson married Margaret Love in Bendigo 1860 - he was aged 29 and parents recorded as Carl Johnson and what appears to be Maria Bilston, his place of birth recorded as Gothenberg Sweden. I also note that a Lorence Johnson married Sarah Baker 1865 and Mary Ann Pascoe 1873; when he married Sarah Parker his place of birth was recorded as Keil Denmark, aged 26, and parents William Johnson and Catherine Peter.

Just as a matter of interest Lorens Johnson and Margaret Love who married in 1860 would appear to have died in NZ 1900 and 1898 respectively, they are buried in the ‘Lawrence, Cemetery, Otago’ he is recorded as Lawrens Johnson and her as Margaret Love on the cemetery index.

Looking for Dulcie Cocking

I ma looking for information concerning Dulcie Cocking born in Victoria (probably Ballarat area) in 1913 daughter of Arthur Cocking and Ada McTaggart. Dulcie married Leonard Gerosimo Mitaxa in Ballarat 1933 but it appears that they divorced in 1946 or there about. There is some unsubstantiated history that they had 2 daughters. 1942 Electoral Rolls clearly indicate that Dulcie and Leonard had separated.

Looking for Emily George Miller

I am looking for information on Emily George Miller, daughter of John Miller and Margaret Munro. Emily was born in Scotland about 1851 she was apparently alive in 1869 when her father died in Ballarat VIC. I have been unable to establish if she ever married or when she died. Emily had a brother Edward Francis Miller who died in 1862 and a sister Johanna Arthur Miller who married Albert Halls and she died in Stawell VIC in 1900.
