Over the last few weeks, I have been featuring articles about the descendants of my great grandfather’s sister Catherine Marr, and a while ago, I featured a few articles about descendants of my great grandfather’s eldest brother Peter Marr. I recently came across this article for another of Peter’s descendants.
The Mrs. F. Collinson in the article was Evelyn Maud Bennett, the wife of Ferdinand Lewis (also known as Lewis Ferdinand) Collinson. Ferdinand Lewis Collinson was the son of William Collinson and Martha Elizabeth Marr. Martha was the daughter of my great grandfather’s brother Peter Marr.
In a later article, the coroner warned about allowing children to handle firearms.
I found in my notes that I had a date of death of 20 August 1938 for Leon Desmond Collinson, the son of Lewis Ferdinand Collinson and Evelyn Maud Bennett, which was from http://www.ozburials.com/CemsVic/redcliffs.htm
However, the above article had mentioned that their son had died two months earlier, so I went looking for an article to verify when he died.
