Researching Reginald James Cunningham is quite the complex mystery.
Lived in Sydney have photos of him in his Army Unifom,
Can I please have ideas where to look next
You have given quite a bare minimum of details. What else do you know about him and how do you know that he was born in Canada?
BTW Is he the guy who married Florence Maud Marley in NSW?
Thank you for your reply .
There is not much we know about Reginald James Cunningham .
He Married Florence Maud Marley in 1952
It says he was a market gardener from Mona Vale and she was from Yelverton St St Peters NSW
HIs age is 36 years and her age as 35 years
It states his father was William Cunningham (Deceased) Company Director
Mother Elizabeth May (Davis )
He died 1986 in Bundaberg.
And that is all we know.
He does not come up any census but Florence does.
Thankyou for your assistance
I’ve seen a few trees for him that seem to have varying details regarding his birth place and his parents, so I’ve got the following questions
At the moment I’ve only got one theory left that I have not been able to rule out. Unfortunately it isn’t a theory I feel very confident about, so I’m hoping that any possible answers to the questions will help me a bit … I know that you can't always answer every question, but sometimes that might be an answer in itself ... e.g. maybe he doesn't have James as a second name at all, so try to give a comment for each of the 6 questions.
Everything we know is here say.
1 .He told his family he was born in Canada Quebec
His family William Cunningham was deceased on his marriage certificate.
He told everyone he was Reginald James his only grandson also has the James as a second name.
His uniform is Australian
He told his family he went to war and he fought in The Desert against Romell he then went to New Guinea.
He wore a Army uniform
Do not know he married in 1952 and his age on that document is 36 years
He could have been born before I have also seen that one in Tasmainia with the wife Jeanette. But feel he is too old.
He lived in NSW and he lived in Queensland.
His son was born in Brisbane.
He is on NO Census his wife is
Florence Maud Cunningham (Marley)
Lived in St Peters in NSW
She also live in Fortitude Valley
He died in Bundaberg in 1986
There is an Earnest James Cunningham maybe ??????
I feel he definitely changed his name but in those days when a name was changed often there was no paperwork?
I want to thank you so much for this help.
With this man anything is possible.
