Hi Jean

Thanks for your quick reply. No, I did not see a church listed on the source I found confirming the marriage in 1895. The info sited included:
Australia Marriage Index, 1788-1950
about Katie Holmes Name: Katie Holmes
Spouse Name: Frank Weakley
Marriage Date: 14 Nov 1895
Marriage Place: Queensland
Registration Place: Queensland
Registration Year: 1895
Registration number: 000276
Page Number: 11990

When you mentioned the children you refered to Kate and Frank differently in the spelling. Is there a reason for that? I only ask becasue we have been trying to figure out where the name Stanislaus comes from??? Any information you can find would be greatly appreciated. As mentioned, I know they lived in this area for a brief period of time, but I don't know much about why they went to Australia (One coming from England and the other From Ireland - I don't know if they met before Australia) or why they left to come to America. It is my understanding that some Weakley's stayed in the area of Queensland Australia.

You mentioned no Church in the area of Monal Creek? Why is that? is the area small?

Thanks Again for your reply, it means alot that people will take their time to help.
