From on Wednesday, 25 September 2013
As far as I knowGeorge & Annie had a son, Vivian who gave away his sister, Lillian (note spelling from the Portland Guardian newspaper 4 Feb 1914) when she wed Alfred Budd (born Timaru, New Zealand) on 15 Jan 1914 at All Saints' Church, Portland, Victoria. the other child I know of (Leslie) was a male also. He acted as best man at the wedding.
Hope this might be helpful. However, if you have other information about the children I would appreciate hearing from you. My interest is the Minogue family, my stepmother's family. My stepmother was Agnes Mary Minogue, a grandniece of Annie Jennings (nee Minogue).
Patrick.
