Seeking information on this couple and their children please

Known children:
Robert John b. c1881, d. 1918 (KIA in France, enlisted in Australia)
Rose
James (possible link to Royal Canadian Mounted Police)
Samuel b. c1891, d. 1973 Western Australia

Robert's next of kin was mother Rose of Ballywattick, Ballymoney, Antrim.

Samuel is my connection (as below). I don't know what the NSW connection is.

Sunday Times, Sunday 28 January 1923
THOMPSON-HUNTER.--On December 20, 1922, at Ross Memorial Church, West Perth, by Rt. Rev. the Moderator (Mr. Blanchard), Samuel, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Thompson, Ballymoney, Ulster, Ireland, to Margaret, only daughter of Mrs. Hunter and late Joseph Hunter, Waroona. New South Wales papers please copy.

Samuel's wife was Margaret Devlin HUNTER b. 1893 Queensland, d. 1977 WA, daughter of Joseph HUNTER (d. 1922) & Mary DEVLIN (b. c1860, d. 1931). No marriage found for Joseph & Mary in Australia. They went from Qld to WA by 1897 (2 sons born, I have their details).

Thank you :-)
