Delighted to find the photo of Lewis and Mary Ann's children. Catherine Rogers Crowle was my husband's grandmother.

Hope this is of interest.

Hi Friends I have been searching internet sites for some months now regarding my father's family. I found Elizabeth Janson's site and your photograph of the children of Mary Ann Grace Williams and Lewis Crowl. I knew the name of Poad as my father's relations and instantly knew that I had struck pay dirt. Thank you for supplying the photograph of my half ancestors. I have been told by my father that Margaret Annie in your photo was also known as "Bid" for reasons unknown.
The name Crowl/Crowle spelling changed for reasons unknown to me or my father (still living).
I may be able to fill in some gaps for you regarding my grandfather, although I never knew him. Lewis John Crowle born Bendigo Victoria in 1881, one year before Lewis Crowl Snr (Mine Manager at Eaglehawk Sandhurst) died in a mining accident 1882. Lewis John Crowle lived in Bendigo for 27 years before moving to Western Australia where he lived until his death, 20th December 1953 at Bunbury District Hospital aged 72 years - Register of deaths No. 18953. Buried at Anglican Cemetery Bunbury. He was a station master/railway employee at various country locations in Western Australia. At age 30 he married Amy Eileen Kruger b.around 1886 Horsham Victoria dec'd 24/12/1960/61, aged 25 on 19th April 1911 at Midland Junction, Church of the Ascension Western Australia. Amy Eileen Kruger was the child of Henry Richard Kruger (Dec'd), Bank Manager, (Horsham Vic.?) and Lucy Annie Mary Bennett -their issue Dora Kruger and Norman Kruger (school teacher?). Haven't had luck tracing this side of the family.
Lewis John Crowle & Amy Eileen Kruger had 4 children:
1. Dorothy Amy Crowle (Dec'd - aka Billie) born around 1912 who m. Desmond Kelly with one issue Kathleen Kelly (Still living WA).
2. Kathleen Joan Crowle b. 22/6/1914 - 24/12/1998 who m. prior 1953 Max Ranson (Dec'd) with issue Ross (still Living WA), Maxine (still living WA) and Ronald (Dec'd).
3. Betty Lewis Crowle b. 1919 (Dec'd) who married Arthur Christian Williamson 9/9/1950 (aka Snooks Dec'd) with issue of Arthur Garry Lewis (Garry) (still Living WA), Kim (still Living WA), Rodger (still Living WA), Geoffrey who died at a few days old and then Terry Williamson (still Living WA, who were fostered out after Betty's death.
4. Peter John Crowle (still living WA) b. 15th October 1928 in Bellevue WA. m. Maxine Pearl Jarvis (still living WA), daughter of Ernest Edward Richard Cave Jarvis and Lillian Iris Ella Smith of Bunbury on 9th September 1950 - both dec'd.
My father was touched that the reason his father did not talk much about his father was because Lewis Crowle had died when he was only one year old and so he didn't know him at all. Thank you for your contribution to our family. I have a lot of people to contact I think. Regards Marilyn McCutcheon nee Crowle
