Hi,

Seeking any info re Arthur James Peterson.
I believe he was an engineer based in Double Bay Sydney,
after possibly serving as a Major in the British Army in WW1.

Arthur married my Great Aunt Jessie Naomi Sydenham,
born 1899 Colac Vic, wed in Manly NSW in 1935.

Wedding Number 4701 NSW.

Jessie was raised in Colac Victoria, and moved
to Manly in the late 1920s, where she lived with
her sister Zoe, and brother in law Herbert Longden,
at 54 Addison St. Manly.

From Census Records, Jessie moved back home to near Colac
pre 1943, as did her sister Zoe, some one may also assume her husband Arthur may have passed away around this time.

Any Birth or Death or personal records or photos re Arthur J Peterson in particular, would be greatly apppreciated.

Thanks,
K. J. "Mixo" Sydenham

You may have it but Jessie's death in 1950 was in Victoria (reg 16604).

Death notice from NLA Trove:
The Argus, Saturday 4 March 1950
PETERSON.-On February 28, Jessie N., who passed away at Moana, Colac. -A loving tribute from her sisters.

Do you need the deaths of her 3 sisters? Or anything on Arthur's parents?
