Trove Tuesday

Trove Tuesday – Eva Abson

I have been having trouble deciding who I should do a Trove Tuesday post for next, so I decided to work through my family tree by creating a list of everyone who died before 1955 in Australia, and to work through the list alphabetically, by surname.  I skipped over the first 3 on the list who died young, and the first person on the list was Eva Abson.

My relationship to Eva is:

The first article I found for Eva was when Eva applied for a divorce from her husband, Thomas Donellan Loney.

Eva then went on to marry Wilton Raymond Stanley in 1916, and in 1926 she again filed for divorce.
