Surnames: Maguire, Bernasconi, Williams
Looking for any information on Annie Maguire / Bernasconi who was in the Charters Towers district at the end of the 1800's and early 1900's. She became Bernasconi in the early 1900's and moved to Brisbane, passed away in 1940 and is buried in the Nudgee cemetary. Children included Gladys, Louis Sydney, John, Arthur, Herbert and Debora. Any information on her and also a Arthur Evan Williams who was also in the Towers area in the late 1800's would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much for that. I believe Arthur was my great grandfather and would like to obtain as much info on Annie as possible and would also like to get some info on a Arthur Evan Williams who is on Deboras birth certificate as her father and who is most probably Arthurs father as well but not on his certificate. He was an engine driver from Wales and approximately 29 years of age when Debora was born but has disappeared from all records.
Once again thank you.
