For a few years now I have been searching for information regarding one of my Great great grandFathers.
When we first started looking for him we only knew him as Ken Mckenzie and that he was a surveyor. This information was provided on his son’s ( Walter John Wooller/McKenzie, my great grandfather) death certificate, by his father-in-law, Edwin Buckman.
My Great great grandmother, Eliza Matilda Wooller, had three children that we know of at present, as far as I have been able to establish she never married. On all the children’s birth certificates no Father is listed, but on wedding certificates and death certificates their last name is given as McKenzie.
Now my grandmother, Eliza Matilda, had 2 boys and 1 girl. The girl being the youngest of the 3. speaking of the girl, (Amy Christina Wooler/McKenzie). In my researches I lost track of her I knew she had been born but I couldn’t find what had happened to her. And I looked in the records of 3 states.
One day when I was visiting my father he asked if there were any certificates that i would like to get. So I did a quick search on the DBM database and found a record of a marriage with the brides name similar to my great aunt’s name, so I asked him to order that and see if it was the right one.
As it turned out it was. The reason I hadn’t found it before was that on the marriage certificate her name was spelt the french way, Aimee instead of Amy. And this certificate was more helpful in the search for my GGgrandfather. From this certificate we learn’t that his name was George Kenneth McKenzie, and that he was deceased at the time of his daughter’s wedding in 1901.
So this is what I know about him so far. His name : George Kenneth McKenzie ; but went by the name of Ken or Kenneth. Also he was dead by the time his daughter got married in November 1901. And that his occupation may have been that of a surveyor.
The closest I have come in my search is the death of a George kenneth McKenzie in Perth Hospital in Perth,WA, Australia just prior to his daughters wedding. On the death certificate his occupation at time of death is listed as being that of a Civil Engineer. So that comes close to my search criteara.
But what I need is some documented evidence that ties the man who died in Perth hospital with the family over in Sydney. So this is why I am asking for some help. If anyone knows of any document or photo, or certificate, connection between a George Kenneth McKenzie and either a Eliza Matilda Wooller or William George Wooller/mcKenzie; Walter John Wooller/ McKenzie or Amy/Aimee Christina Wooller/McKenzie. I would be happy to have you contact me and let me know of the details.
