Same column has a couple more notices naming Kevin as nephew of Ethel and Ernie Dillon, cousin of Ernie, Edna and Mervyn; also nephew of Ellen and Tom Rusconi, cousin of Rose and Fred. I can't find birth for Clare/Clara A Newell, but there is a registration for Annie C Newell, 1914, Albury, mother Clara E, no father's name, Reg.No.33528. There is a marriage for a Clara E Newell to David Kelly, 1922, Lockhart, Reg. No.12853.

Inserted by his sorrowing daughter Ethel, and son-in-law Ernest, grandchildren Richard, Mervyn and Edna Dillon (Wuraming) : also his daughter Clara, and Mervyn Dillon (Hollyoake). Charles & Elizabeth Nawell had six children - Charles H, Elizabeth A, Harriett, Ellen, Sarah J, and Frederick - all born, 1885-1896, in the Newcastle area. No births recorded in WA. Which of the girls is Ethel - not Sarah J who died in 1896. Both brothers joined the AIF, Charles in October, 1914 and Frederick in June, 1915. Charles died at Gallipolli; Frederick came back. If young Charles had been Clara's father, might the grandparents have adopted her? And, a Charles Henry Nawell married Bridget Hodgkinson 1914 in Victoria. Co-incidence? His WW1 record (www.naa.gov.au <http://www.naa.gov.au> ) states 4 years military service with D. Company G.S.R. I'm not sure what that is, but perhaps possible that he may have served in Victoria. I don't think that I've come up with anything concrete, but perhaps there's a little bit to think about. But we have to smile - This email must have cost me an arm and a leg. I turned the sprinkler on in the garden and became so engrossed with my searching, forgot all about the sprinkler until I'd almost flooded the backyard. Cheers Barbara
