Frederick Coldrey

From on Sun, 07 Aug 2005
Hi Elizabeth,
As a descendant of the 'Coldrey's' I read with interest the information you have about the Coldrey ancestors.
I was especially interested in the information that you have for Frederick Henry Coldrey (b. 1863) which states that he and his wife (Jessie McCraw) had only 5 children.
You might be interested to know that they did in fact have a sixth child, Walter Coldrey (b. 1893, Castlemaine), who then married Eva May Willis in 1915 and between them they had 7 children (whose information I can readily supply, if you are interested).
Keep up the great family history work - your website is a fantastic resource!!
Kind regards,
Sacha Pidot
Thankyou Sacha
