Since my last post I have sent for George Thompson's marriage
cert. He and Marie Josephine Power were married at Coen, Nth Qld 22 January 1903. His parents were listed as John Thompson & Jane Cummins, and John was a farmer. I have this week received George's birth cert and his parents were both listed as having been born in Armagh. My hesitation in accepting these as Adrian's forebears was partly because John was described as farmer when George married in 1903. I had expected that if he was dead he would have been listed as Deceased. I have been told that sometimes people were listed by their last known occupation, so this could still be right. I have sent the necessary monies to Warwick Family History Society for some research to be done there, and also the Stanthorpe society as that is where Marie Power was born.
Will let you know if anything further eventuates
