    Hello. I am the granddaughter of Elizabeth A Hicks who married George Arkinstall in 1908. I noticed that the death year for my grandmother is shown as 1996, but it should be 1969. We were unaware that the Hicks lived in Wollongong for a long time. My husband and I lived in Wollongong about 35 years, before retiring to Bonny Hills, near Port Macquarie – strange coincidences! We would love to know more about George and Catherine, if you have information. We knew Minnie, Kate and Albert, but never met Ada.
    My mother, Eva Arkinstall had the photo of George and Catherine near the car.
    Hope to hear from you,
    Margaret Felton.
