I have made a posting before, but I still can't find anything about my Gr.Aunt Alice Maud (Hickmott) Palmer. I know she married Frank Palmer and they had at least (2) sons - Claude Richard 1909 : Norman ?William abt.1913.
Not sure of the year, but Gr. Aunt Mary, Alice's her older sister was visiting family of another sister Emily Victoria (Hickmott) O'Leary in Cairns, and I remember Aunt Mary saying she had received word that her sister Alice had passed away. I was young so I never asked where Aunt Alice was living at the time of her death. The year I'm not sure of but I thought it was just before 1963 when I was 16 and Aunt Mary took me to Brisbane to visit my other Gr.Aunt Lilly (Lillian Marie Harriet (Hickmott) Sheppard), Mary and Alice's younger sister and her family.
A wonderful holiday, and one I will never forget as I found (4) wonderful cousins that any family would be so very proud of, they are / were the Laverty Brothers who served our Country in the Regular Army - in ALL the Asian Wars. We lost Trevor at the very young age of 26, Lionel last year in May, Barry the eldest and Stephen the youngest are our surviving heroes.
Please if there is anyone that knows anything about Aunt Alice, I would love to here from you.
