Sisters: Mary & Elizabeth PRICE-JONES or JONES or PRICE

I'm looking for the family of my cousins Mary and Elizabeth PRICE-JONES (or JONES or PRICE depending on what the census takers chose to put down.) Their family lived in Pennsylvania (Blakely area) and were originally from "South Wales." Mary and Elizabeth were living in Australia by 1921.

Mary married J. DALZIEL of Stawell, Victoria, Australia.On-line Service Records suggest that J. Dalziel was probably JOHN WILLIAM DALZIEL, born c 1881 in Stawell. John was a blacksmith and served in the 39th Battalion Veterinary Corp, 3rd Australia Division. His father was JOHN GIBBON DALZIEL, Main Street, Stawell, Victoria.

ELIZABETH married GEORGE GRANDIN in Australia. (His name may have been Charles George Grandin.) They lived in Sewel, Victoria and Melbourne and had three children: HERBERT EDWARD GRANDIN (died 1975 NSW), who worked for the railways, CHARLES GRANDIN, who was a musician in Sydney in 1921. ELSIE CALLANDER GRANDIN born c. 1889 died in 1969 Carlton Victoria aged 80. Elsie's husband was ARTHUR HUNT.

I would greatly appreciate information about any of these family members. Learning more about the Price-Jones connection may also help me to sort out my great grandmother Margaret Jones from hundreds of others in South Wales.
