Hi Michele,
I am not sure of the Frank Thomas Maddox death 1937 WA

Thank you again for your lookups for me,
I am really confused with all this,
because of the fist names of Frederick Thomas/Frank Thomas Maddox


his daughter Eva married 1908 to Frank Von Thiele in Sydney
Frank Von Thiele was my Grandfather,I have the certificate for this marriage, and it says her Father Frank Maddox was deceased at the time Mother Caroline Hall (Caroline signed her name as a witness Caroline Davey, this is because she was with a Reginald Davey at the time (she married him in 1923 in Sydney but he must have been the Father of some of her children because 2 of the children who were born in Melbourne with no father named were registered in N.S.W IN 1923 as (Davey) also Reginald Davey was a justice of the peace at Redfern )( 2nd marriage of Eva was to Henry Brignull 1920 but again it has this marriage as Brightwell which is a definite mistake on BDM N.S.W IT should be Brignull
I have Eva's death certificate in 1924 and on that it says her father was Thomas,

but on the births for Maddox it says his name is Frederick Thomas born 1866 in Fitzroy Melbourne#1493 parents William Maddox and Mary Ann James and he married Caroline Ann Hall 1888, Emu Crk Victoria #6102 but again it has his name as Frank Thomas Caroline Ann Hall was born 1867 Sandhurst #4475 parents George Edward Hall and Anne Askew
I also have the mariage certificate for Caroline to Reginald Davey in 1923 and i know this is the same Caroline because it has her father as George Edward Hall school teacher deceased and Annie Askew
I have never been able to find George Edward Hall his death records,his parents were George Hall and Mary Tannery Owens and he was born in Canada Halifax Nova Scotia around 1834 and they came to Australia 1852 but his wife Ann Askew remarried in 1876 to a Hayden

I hope i am not confusing you also with all this, but i really appreciate any help you can give, as i am nearly 70 now and i would like to put my tree into book form for my children, but i would like to make sure i have the correct information before i start my book,
i suppose the next step would be to send for the marriage certificate for Frank Thomas Maddox and Caroline and hope this would give the parents, i think this is my only option i will keep my fingers crossed and hope it is the correct certificate,
Thnks again
Regards Patricia
