      You wouldnt know the deaths dates by any chance as the only information I have is that Charles and Margaret had 5 living children so I'm guessing several of the children died very young

          Thanks for your help Keldon it's much appreciated, Having just found a recent link to family in Australia, it's all new and exciting to me. I've found George Chapman White born 1859 , he died 1860 and is buried at West Terrace Cemetery in Adelaide South Australia as are several others. I'm have no luck atm finding anything on Florence Eliza White b 1858 , Clarissa Augusta White b 1865 and Walter Albert b 1866. No deaths or marriages. I know Charles Wife died in July 1867 and he remarried Adolphina Miller in 1871. I have information that Charles had a further two children but have found nothing as of yet

            I've found Clarissa, she was buried as ...
            Charissa Augusta Spooner (nee white) died 1893.
            Her husband was Arthur Murray Spooner. Turns out Arthur was a bent copper. He embezzled money from the police funds. In June 1890 he was sentenced to 3 years hard labour. So he could possibly still be in jail when Clarissa died.

            Just need to find info on Florence now.

                    Emmaline Louise Cooper (nee White) b 1873 - d December 1893 married Arthur Herbert Cooper on the 22nd February 1893.

                    Is it possible Emmaline died in childbirth
                    I can't find anything on Harry Arthur Frederick apart from his birth and death 1884-1959

                    ​​​​​Did he marry or could he have served in the Forces

                      Wee update I've found Harry WW1 records, so now I just need to find out if he married.

                      Still nothing on Emmalines death atm
