I am Tracing my Grandfather of my mothers side

I have little information but I hope the following may help

His name was William Drake and he was I believe one of seven boys, He married Dorothy Nagle of Sydney some time in the early 1900's . He worked on the warves in Sydney

Ther marriage fell apart but I dont think they ever divorced, William died around 1950, Dorothy around 1952, She is buried at Rockwood Cemetry in Sydney

They had three duaghters Jean (Jessica) Kitty and Gwen

All three girls went to boarding school at Leichardt (when the marriage failed) and Dorothy worked as a barmaid in the hotels of Sydney to support them.

Jean married Leslie James White and had nine children

Patricia, David, Janice Sarah, Keith (me) Leah, Stephanie Carol and Wesley

Kitty married Peter Grey and had 4 children
Forbes, Ian, Diane and Veda

Gwen married a chap called Scott-and they had one child Beverly

Any help appreciated

Best Regards

Keith G WHite
