Journals and Posts
I am looking for this family on behalf of Peter Stringer, brother of Wilfred, who is 80+ and doesn't have internet. They were all born in Lahore (was India, now Pakistan) and later lived in an Anglo-Indian community in Bihar called McCluskieganj. Mother Ramona later remarried Mr SCUDEN. and the children may have taken her new married name. This family are possibly in Eastern Canada.
Father: Wilfred STRINGER born 1920 Lahore
Mother: Ramona LEANAN born 1930 Lahore, remarried SCUDEN or SCUDDEN.
Clive STRINGER born Lahore
Ronald STRINGER born Lahore
Jennifer STRINGER born Lahore
Peter has family news and stories of McCluskieganj for any descendants.
Frank was an Australian soldier at the time of his marriage to Lily on 3 Dec 1918 in West Ham, East London. He said his father was Jack Lewis, a Coachman.
Frank enlisted 11 July 1916 Lefroy Tas giving his age as 20 (ie born 1896). His mother Jesse was given as next of kin. He arrived in England 5 Dec 1916 and fought in France.
He left England with his unit for Tasmania 20 July 1919. Lily followed on a ship with other forces wives and dependents. Frank was discharged to Munitions work and he and Lily set up home in Branxholm.
Can't find his death but Lily died 03 Apr 1978 at Hobart, Tasmania. A librarian found a notice of her death in a newspaper which says: beloved wife of Frank (dec), loving mother of Doris (dec) and grandmother of James, Kevin, Steven, Robert and Erica Johnson. Great grandmother of Leslie and Steven.
I would also be very interested to hear from anyone else who might have information about this family.
