Nellie Elizabeth Thomas was born in Western Australia in 1902. She was the daughter of Alfred Benjamin Thomas & Ellen (Nellie) Josephine Thomas (nee Martin). Nellie married Oswald Hodges in 1919 in Western Australia. Nellie left Oswald and journeyed to New Zealand about 1930's with or to another man (whose name is unknown to my family). Oswald Hodges filed for divorce in 1943 which was granted in Perth, Western Australia. I would dearly love to find her family as it is known that she had at least one daughter and one son. It is believed her son was in the New Zealand Air Force and he came to Geelong in Australia about 1946 or 1947. Nellie's daughter also had a daughter. Nellie had two brothers whose names were Harold and Alfred and one sister, Edith.

Just wondering if anyone has any information on Ellen Martin, born in Philadelphia, USA, around 1876. Ellen Martin gave birth to my grandmother, Doris ‘Lulu’ Gwendoline Martin on March 5, 1900 in Wellington, New Zealand. Doris was adopted by James Doyle (1852-1926) and his wife Alice Brooks (1867-1954) in Wellington on May 19, 1900, and became Doris Gwendoline Martin Doyle. In 1919 Doris married Albert Harold Hanlon (1890-1982), and in 1928 married Francis Eric Quinlivan (1899-1986). There was no record of Doris' father on the adoption file, so it looks like the father will remain a mystery. I don't know if Ellen stayed in New Zealand or returned to the USA.
thanks very much,
My name is Stephen Holder, my wife's maiden name was Margaret Slater, her father was Robert Slater who was born in Paddington, London, England in 1910. Robert's sister, Frances Slater was born in 1919. She married Owen Vincent Tracey in England about 1940. Owen died in 1941 while flying for the R.A.F. Frances then emegrated to New Zealand in May 1946 and married Allenby C .H. Maslin during 1949 in Denedin, Otago, N.Z. From her marriage to Allenby Maslin there were Christine, Gillian and Allenby S. Maslin I believe Christine married Darryl Anderson in about 1973. I see there is an Anderson tree in 'MyHeritage' by Timothy Anderson and think it's my wife's family. So if you are out there Timothy could you please reply to this message.
