finding my great grand mother

Annie Marjoram has been a great mystery in the family. My grandmother did not even know she had been nicked from her real mother until at about aged 60 she went to get her birth certificate. It turned out that she did not exist! After some questions were asked, the lies were revealed and she discovered who her real mother had been. She also discovered she had a brother.

I have been searching for some time for information on Annie. The family had her located in Rookwood. But when I visited the cemetery several years ago, with my mother and sister, we could not find her there.

Recently I found her suggested second marriage. This lead me to her death certificate, and with one in tow, I headed off to Rookwood. This time to look in the cremations and in the correct year. So it was with ease that I was able to find her.
