Hi Sylvia, many thanks for your information on Florence Hunter, her Father was Presbyterian, her Mother Catholic. Florence was raised Presbyterian, however family suspect she may have converted to Catholicism.
I have mistyped her 2nd time to Australia, if it is correct, it would have been 1948 aboard the Ormonde. I will try and pursue the probate information that you gave me, Florence appeared to have a moveable date of birth, she was born in 1902, however at times her birth year has been recorded as 1905 and once as 1909. Thank you so much
