Seeking information on Alice Maud Mary King and her husband William Henry Daw(e) they were married in 1913 and this was registered in East Coolgardie, Western Australia.

William was the son of of Henry Charles Daw and Mary Ann McHugh and he was born on 9 May 1873 in Grace Plans, SA.

Alice was the daughter of George (Sam) King (born circa 1848 in USA) and Ellen Quinn (1832 - 1923). Ellen was Ned Kelly's mother and had married Geaorge in 1874 after her first husband, John (Red) Kelly had died in Avenel, Victoria on 27 December 1866.

It appears that Alice's brother John King (1875-1956) was also in WA for a time in the WA police 1906-8. He served in WW1 and was also a circus rider and stockwhip Champion. john travelled the world and is buried in Buenos Aires.

Any assistance appreciated.
