I am seeking descendants if this man. His parents were Leslie William Wilson and Clara nee Reynolds.

Clara was my grandmother and married Leslie in 1920, however I am led to believe that he is not my grandfather as they divorced in 1923.

I really would like to find out more info on Leslie if possible. So if there is anyone who can help me please make contact.

I really want to solve this riddle for my mother- Clara's daughter

Have you tried "Search all trees" under the Search button above?

If you find a possible match you can contact the tree owner to see if you have a match.

I would suggest that you delete the automatic message that is already in the message box and write your own as members will not open their tree without first establishing the connection with you.

Leslie W Wilson and Clara Reynolds married 1920 at St Peters Sydney they had two children William David b 1920 and Lorna May 1922 although Leslie only acknowledge William as his.

In 1923 Leslie William Wilson was the applicant in a divorce application with Clara as respondent and a Joseph Dooley as co-respondent. I have a copy of divorce application - but it does not appear as though it ever became absolute.

William David married Amber May Lawrence at Liverpool NSW in 1944.

Any help appreciated.
