7.1.1 Frank Alfred Jillett & Marcia Cran Richardson
For some unknown reason Katie Jillett must have never mentioned to her family of the whereabouts of her older brother Frank.
It would seem that in the letter that their mother wrote when she visited Hobart to visit Thomas when he was dying, that she called him Alf.
The great thing about doing the family research is re-connecting with other families who are Thomas and Mary Ann Jillett's descendents.
These photos show Frank Alfred Jillett (1879 d 1946) and with Marcia Cran Richardson at their marriage.
Marcia's family worked in the sugar cane industry in the Wide Bay area.
It is also amazing to notice the strong resemblance between different members of Alfred and Catherine's family. Frank's grand daughter Jan Russell has provided all the photos of Frank's family.
Frank and Marcia had four children. Marcia, Richard, Harold and Tasma.
Tasma is still alive at the time of writing.
