Here's the info from the 1930 census---it matches with your grandmother's death date being late 1937 since she died at age 51 and is 43 in ths 1930 census. Your father's birth year looks off. I will see what I have for the 1920 census and get that to you too.

My gg-grandfather Edward had a brother John who moved to Australia where he married a Catherine Beamish.

A distant cousin (descended from my ggg-grandfather Nathaniel's sister Mary) wrote that he has a "John" listed as an additional son for Edward Skeuse and Mary Donovan (I only have the baptismal records of 2 boys: Nathaniel and Edward)....perhaps that will be the connection between our families....I would love to see the wedding cert with John's father's name listed....In any event, I will be in Ireland next month & will see if I can find a birth record....Beth
