Looking for information on Ruby Lillian Davill nee Barrett (1900-1990)

Ruby Lillian Barrett (18/3/1900 - 1990) married Howard Keith Davill (1896-1970), son of John Edward Davill(1859-1940) and Mary Stone(1861-1948), on 11th November 1933 at the Wilmington Methodist Church, SA. Ruby was the 3rd daughter of John Barrett (b. c1855) and Caroline Easther (b.1871 Pekina, SA) of Appila, SA, and she had three sisters. I found one reference to a neice, a Melva Barratt/Barrett? Her younger sister Amy married (name unknown), but died before having children.On older sister Bertha married a Harvie, and had a daughter Phyllis. The other older sister Eva married a Freeman, and had a daughter Margaret, or Margaret Louisa.

Job and Maria DAVILL are my great, great grandparents. They emigrated to South Australia in 1856 aboard the "Switzerland". They had 8 children: 3 sons and five daughters. One son John Edward (order in family unknown) is my great grandfather. He married Mary STONE, daughter of Henry STONE at Orroroo, South Australia. John and Mary had 4 sons and 4 daughters. Their youngest son, Howard Keith is my paternal grandfather. He married Ruby Lillian BARRETT third daughter of J. BARRETT of Appila, on 11/11/1933 at the Wilmington Methodist Church. They initially lived in Wilmington before moving to Jamestown. Howard and Ruby had 2 sons Dalton Keith (12/2/1936 - 3/5/2008 ) and Rodney Howard. Dalton is my father. As both my father and uncle are deceased I have been unable to obtain much information about my family. Any details would be appreciated.
