We may have a confirmation of the identitiy of Molly Spence.
In 1911, Mary Margaret O'Grady married William Topping in Qld - 911/C489 Topping William O'Grady Mary Margaret
In 1933, a Mary Margaret Topping marrid a Melville William John Spence - 1933/C253 Spence Melville William John Topping Mary Margaret .
Was Mary Margaret Topping a widow of William Topping or a daughter? Have to check that out but cannot as yet find a death for William Topping.
Mary Margaret and Melville Spence must have had a daughter within a couple of years of marriage as the following death record comes up:
1935/C1113 Mary Margaret Spence - Melville William John - Mary Margaret Topping.
So, did the Molly Spence in the photo look of an age to be Bessie's sister or her niece?
