Can you help Bradford Craig Starkie?
I'm looking for information on my step grandmother. Perhaps you can help me?
My maternal grandfather was married three times. Mavis, the woman who is second from the right in the photo below, was my grandfather's third wife. Her name was Mavis. She identified as Anglo-Indian and was living in Huntingdale, Western Australia when she met my grandfather. I believe Mavis was born in India. I believe they married around 1980, and this photo was taken on the day of their wedding, not long after they met. They met via the personal columns in the newspaper which was the 1970s equivalent of internet dating. I never actually met Mavis, but I met her daughter, son-in -and grandson once around 1980. The grandson was in school at the time, possibly Southern River Collage in Gosnells or Huntingdale Primary. They lived in Huntingdale WA. Her grandson would be in his 50s or 60s now. Mavis died on 13 Mar 1994 in Gosnells, and is buried with my grandfather in Midland Cemetery. I'm interested in knowing a bit more about Mavis. I have researched my family history, and Mavis's story is part of the story of my family.
I was raised in Thornlie and my recollection is that there weren't a lot of people of Angl- Indian descent in the City of Gosnells at that time, so if you went to school with a boy of Indian descent in the Gosnells area in the late 70s or early eighties, that person may be my step cousin.
If you are related to Mavis or know someone who is or knows who she is I would appreciate a message. Otherwise please forward the message to anyone you know who is in the Gosnells or W.A. Anglo-Indian Community.
