Victoria? Looking for the (possible) marriage of Elsie Violet Myrtle RAYSON who married Jack DAVIES - there is a 1930 entry in Queensland (#001150) Jack DAVIES but bride's name is Elsie LAWSON not Elsie RAYSON
Elsie and Jack had 1 son Hugh DAVIES - not known when/where Hugh was born.
Background details:
Elsie born 1906 in South Australia. Father's name: Stanley RAYSON. Mother's (incorrect) surname on Elsie's birth entry: Annie FORSTER (Mother's full correct name: Marie Matilda aka Annie STARK/STARCK.)
Stanley Rayson, wife & 2 children later living in Victoria.
Mother Annie RAYSON died in Victoria June 1956 - ashes at Fawkner Cemetery (Death notice - The Argus: Annie Matilda, from 6 The Righi, Ivanhoe, wife of Stanley Rayson, loved mother of Elsie Mrs J. A. Davies, mother-in-law of Jack, grandmother of Hugh).

Other details since found for Elsie
- Electoral Rolls 1977 at Batman Ivanhoe and 1980 at Templestowe Ivanhoe.
- She died 2000 ashes at Fawkner Cemetery.

Any suggestions/help much appreciated.

Ann: Many many thanks for such a prompt reply - should have posted msg sooner. I don't know why when I checked Vic. marriage searches that nothing came up.

Hi Mgt,
If you were using Ancestry to search for the marriage it wouldn't show as Ancestry VIC Marriage Index only goes to 1920..

If using VIC BDM the spelling (eg. Jno for John) might have been the issue.

Hello Anne - You were able to help me in July 2012 - Not sure if you're able to help me again or could redirect me elsewhere?
I'm relooking at the RAYSON/DAVIES connection with regard to two deaths their dates now sourced from cemetery records and/or newspaper adv. I'm also including their parents' names which hopefully will assist you while searching.

DEATH: (Might be under the spelling of “DAVIS” as cemetery entry was under DAVIS not DAVIES)
DAVIES, John Arthur d.11 Jan 1974 late of Heidelberg & Ivanhoe (The Ryerson Index - Search for Notices / Death notice)
Parents' names: Father: Richard Hugh DAVIES / Mother: Dora nee OWEN

Surname DAVIES
Date Of Birth 27 Jul 1906 / Date Of Death 27 Feb 2000 / Age 93
Parents' names: Father - Stanley RAYSON / Mother: Possibly = Marie Matilda aka Annie STARK/STARCK? (this gets a little tricky as mother's name on Elsie's Sth Aust birth cert had incorrect surname - I also have Elsie's birthdate as 26 July 1906)
