I had not taken any notice of the gap in the births until you mentioned it so I went back and re-checked I had typed the information given to me by the McCaffrey family member correctly. The dates are the same as the ones I sent you.

I also dug out the funeral notice I had for Elsie and it says "devoted Mum of Cyril (dec), Dud (dec), Barry (dec) and Don". There was an article written in the Manning River Times on Elsie on Wednesday 9 April 2003 regarding her passing and it states that "she married Hugh McCaffrey in 1915 and moved to Kingaroy in Queensland before returning to settle in the Manning. Hugh died in 1951, but Elsie stayed at Mitchells Island with son Don and enjoyed the company of her grandchildren, great grandchildren and many friends until her death".
