This orphan has been claimed by: Lois Everett

I decided to research my family history.  The gravity of sorrow felt for these little boys is great even though I was born 96 years later. 

regards Lois Pearl Everett.

Mary Ann Mortimer lived in Launceston after she married William James Everett. I hope she got to spend some time with her brother John.
