  • Notes 
    • Violet's birthday book has that Jim arrived in Mackay on the 05 Oct 1910. This is not correct as he arrived in 1909 and this is confirmed in Lizzie's postcard to Mena on the 25 May 1909 where she says, Our cousin will be out in the end of June or the beginning of July.

      Arrived on the Oswestry Grange.

      The Courier-Mail Sat 22 October 1938
