  • Notes 
    • His birthday is in the Phillips birthday book. His marriage certificate lists his birthplace as Euston, Gundagai, NSW.

      At age 17 he is supposed to have made his way up to Queensland. He is likely to have stayed with the Phillips which would be about the time he is listed in the birthday book.
