Hi Stuart,

I am the great granddaughter of George by his 2nd marriage.

I am also the owner of his police batton. If you would like to know about his 2nd family as I see Glenn Manion has given you all info from 1st marriage but not 2nd family. I have more photos of 2nd family if you are interested including marrickville and burwood house photos. Also George died at the Lidcombe Lunitic Assylum - address Granville NSW. The address you have listed was actually my grandmother Janet's home address in Hurstville NSW, nowhere near Granville. Glenn didn't discuss the fact that he was going to give my pictures to anyone but never the less I am happy to make contact with you myself. Regards Jodie Worboys

Note: Family history has it that Mick became too much of a handfull at the age of 93 and was moved to the Lidcombe State Hospital. His final weeks were spent in delerium where he would be raging at demons who he believed were coming to get him. This was a difficult thing for the nurses to handle as he was a large man of 16 stone or so. His sole possessions that were left to his family comprised a top hat, his police baton and a concertina. He fathered 19 children from two marriages.

Ruby Clara survived infancy unlike many of her siblings and had seven children, six boys and one girl. She was married for 23 years. Her mother died when she was 7 but she is remembered by decendants of Mick's second marriage. She fondly remembered her step mother by giving her daughter Ruby Janet, the stepmother's name as a middle name. This was a common practice in the Manions.
