Thanks again Liz,
I have now sorted through all this and it's marvellous how it all fits together. Yes, I can now see May Daly listed as Mary buried at Toowong but no sign of Daniel Joseph Daly's burial in the Brisbane cemeteries ?
May I ask your advice about two of May's sisters and electoral rolls ?
Ruby Harding was born 7 Aug 1891 in QLD, and she married Douglas William Gibson in Brisbane 31 Mar 1917. Douglas was born 21 Sep 1892 Brisbane, son of William Douglas Gibson and Mary Fraser. Douglas was living at Kedron QLD when he enlisted on 11 Feb 1942 in the Army, WW2 service number Q124886, and he was a Staff Sergeant for the Volunteer Defence Corps when discharged in 1945. Ruby Gibson lived at Haig St, Gordon Park, and died on 8 Jun 1951 at Brisbane, and was cremated at Mt Thompson.
I don't know when/where Douglas died or was buried. A nephew recalls that they had 3 daughters -
Heather Gibson married Jack T Reid and had 2 children Douglas and Carol Reid, and lived at Haig St, Gordon Park.
Hazel Gibson married Edward (Eddy) J Ranahan, and had one daughter who married and moved to Sydney. Edward John Ranahan was born on 31 Jan 1911 at Dalby, QLD, and he was living at Kelvin Grove when he enlisted in the Australian Army at Auchenflower, QLD, on 9 May 1941, Service Number Q107183. He was a private with the 5th Field Regiment when he was discharged on 3 Nov 1945.
Sylvia Gibson married David Mackay who had a jewellery business in Fortitude Valley.
Would Heather, Hazel and Sylvia appear on electoral rolls ?
I suspect this may be Heather buried at Pinnaroo -

Name Burial Date Age
Reid Heather 04 / 09 / 1991 73 years
Reid John Ebenezer T 07 / 11 / 1968 57 years
The other sister was Olive Ann Harding, born 8 Mar 1894 Qld and she married Sylvester Bede (Cyril) Carberry on 2 Jan 1933 at Brisbane. Sylvester was born 28 June 1898 in Qld, son of William Joseph Carberry and Rose McManus. They lived at 325 Riding Rd, Balmoral. Olive was buried 10 Jul 1972 at Hemmant, Brisbane, and Sylvester was buried with her on 30 Dec 1976. They had one daughter -
Olive Rose Carberry who married Joseph Patane, a dentist. They had 2 children Carlo and Gina Patane. They divorced and Olive moved to Sydney.
Can Olive and family be found on electoral rolls ?
I found this one possibility for Joseph's death in the Ryerson index but I don't know if he's the right one -
PATANE Joseph Death notice 23JUN2007 Death 75 late of Park Ridge, formerly of Gordonvale Courier Mail (Brisbane) 29JUN2007
I hope that I'm not asking too much.
Best wishes, Wayne
