Surnames: FREEMAN MURPHY DONNELLY
Gordon Freeman married Daisy Murphy in Perth in 1915.

In Sydney in 1939 he married Matilda Theresa Donnelly.

Daisy died in Perth in 1948.

I cannot find Gordon and Daisy's divorce, which would have been in the period 1934-1939.

Is someone more competent than me able to assist, please?
Thanks

Info on this famiy in Ancestrys public trees x 4

Am unsure if there was more than one person with this name around the same time. Theres also a Gordon Keith Whitley FREEMAN. The G K FREEMAN seems to have a few quite different occupations from a missionery to an orchardist to an engineer ??? If he was the one bloke he certainly moved house a lot got about the country !

Bye

The divorce may have been in NORTHERN TERRITORY or SOUTH AUSTRALIA, the couple were in NORTHERN TERRITORY 1930 - 1934, & Gordon was in SOUTH AUSTRALIA in 1934.

Many thanks for all your help.
Freeman was sacked as Superintendent of the 'Half-caste Home' at Alice Springs in 1934.
It would appear that Freeman and his wife then separated.
My guess is that he divorced in SA or NSW - but how can I find out ? I have trawled Trove, but ...

I think Freeman added Whitney to his name sometime after early 1934- but I have no idea when or why.
How did you find his various occupations please ? I am not very good at this !
Thanks
