Last week, I featured articles about the Whimpey family, so this week, I’ll be looking at another branch of the family.
The next person, when working through my tree systematically, was my paternal grandmother, Ivy May Harley. Although I found some articles for Ivy Harley, I couldn’t be sure any of them were for my grandmother, so the next person was my paternal grandfather, Wilfred Palmer Marr. Using “Wilfred Marr”, I only found a death notice for him.
MARR. – On January 22, at Mount Royal Hospital, Wilfred Palmer Marr, formerly of North Melbourne, beloved father of Jean (Mrs. Whimpey), Margaret, and Aubrey, grandpa of Elaine, aged 62 years.
I then tried using “W. P. Marr”
The information about my grandfather appears in the Correspondence section:
From W. P. Marr, Baxter, desiring qualification certificate for mixed farming – Request granted.
Wilfred appeared on the wounded soldier lists in the 1st World War.
