Dear Ailin 

 

Yes the article relates to my mum's (Edith) father and mother.     I remember when I was about 8 years old spending about 12 months or so staying with grand mother in the old Gladstone house.  We have a photo some where in the early 1980's, dad or I had taken of the old house with the TV aerial on the house. 

 

Mum was the youngest of 9 Lee Fook children.     If I remember correctly mum's father (James) died when mums was young (may be about 14), grand mother had a hard life rearing the children, she continued to grow vegetables to support the family.     I note the old house is owned by a Mr.  R. Moore, he could be the grand son of Mrs Moore who used to live across the street.     Old Mrs Moore was a close friend of my grand mother.      Thank you for the article, I will send it to Karen and Michael.(Russell Loon's two children)     I have forgotten when you left Italy the country you moved to?. 

 

God Bless    Cousin Russell
