As May was born in 1892 she would be 47 in 1939, thats why I dont think its her. I have both Williams and Mays birth certificates and her parents marriage certificate. Thanks to everyone for all the information. I have a copy of Williams service records, thank you though cupcakes.

Janet,
May Florence Kelly Ms Nugent

Cupcakes has found her birth from 1892
Her marriage to Patrick Kelly in 1937
Her death and burial in Charleville in 1939.
This woman was definitely the daughter of Thomas and Bridget

You say you found a burial for May Kelly in Charleville but she was the wrong age.

Thomas and Bridget's daughter May would be around 40-41 yrs old in 1939

Edit:
http://www.interment.net/data/aus/qld/murweh/charleville.htm

Above link is the cemetery records from Charleville.
May Florence Kelly was 40yrd old when she died.
Are you certain that William's mother was May F Nugent, the daughter of Thomas Nugent and Bridget Nagel?
How old did you expect William's mother to be at 1939?

I have also found electoral records for all the others covering many years, but again nothing for May.

Thank you everyone. Obviously I'm doing something wrong because I can not find the marriage on ancestry for May. I have located marriage for all her siblings but nothing for May.

Thank you Anne for that link. May I ask how you know about May Nugent marrying a Kelly and how you found the date of death. Are you related? I did find a May Kelly buried in Charleville but the age wasnt right for our May.

Looking to find relatives of the abovenamed - daughter of Thomas Nugent and Bridget (Nagle). Siblings Michael John (2/10/1890) Ellen Frances (26/2/1895) and Alice Bridget (8/6/1898). Have established through electoral rolls the family lived at 26 Jackson Street Hamilton as late as 1949. We have a possible marriage between Michael and Caroline Bowes in 1919, and their two sons Stanley Joseph and Michael Thomas Nugent. We would be very interested in hearing of descendants of these people. My husband is the son of William, son of May, but we have no information on May at all. William was raised in Nudgee Orphanage in Brisbane.
