From on Tuesday, 2 September, 2008
Hi Elizabeth,
I'm trying to track down the ancestors of my mother's grandfather & great-uncle, the twins Richard and Robert Grayling Jones. They were born 12 January 1873. Richard wed Cecilia Eldridge and their children included Cyril Charles, my maternal grandfather. See Eldridge family tree
I found through http://www.familysearch.org the records relating to twin brother Richard and Robert Grayling Jones. They were born in Lexton, Victoria 1873 to James Jones and Susanna Eliza Grayling, daughter of Richard & Jane Grayling nee Luddon.
Kind regards,
Goopy Weaving
