Hi Chrissy

Looks like they arrived in Sydney in 1912.

Here is his WWI record:
KENDALL Abel : Service Number - 1976 : Place of Birth - Burmingham England : Place of Enlistment - Liverpool NSW : Next of Kin - (Wife) KENDALL Ellen

States he was a bricklayer, aged 31 in 1915 and had served in Shropshire Light Infantry. He had several tattoos! See

It looks like he also served in WWII and lied about his age:
KENDALL ABEL : Service Number - N75849 : Date of birth - 22 Jul 1893 : Place of birth - BERMINGHAM ENGLAND : Place of enlistment - PADDINGTON NSW : Next of Kin - KENDALL ELLEN

I guess this is his son's WWII enlistment?
KENDALL ABEL : Service Number - NX19678 : Date of birth - 06 Jun 1902 : Place of birth - BIRMINGHAM ENGLAND : Place of enlistment - PADDINGTON NSW : Next of Kin - KENDALL THELMA

Abel snr died in 1957 and Abel jnr died in 1977. Ellen died in 1961 - assuming her parents were George & Phoebe? See

WATSON Ada Eliza
Death notice

Sorry I can't help

P.S. Happy new year!

Hi, I tried to find two half-sisters of mine unsuccessfully a few years ago. It's a long shot but maybe you could turn up something for me. They are:- Gladys (on birth cert but known as Johanna) Muller born between 1950 and 1960 father Johann Muller (Austrian) and Ruth Watson, same year range, father was Tom (probably Thomas) Watson (Scottish). Both girls were born in the UK to Ada Eliza Martin/Mason/Muller and finally Watson, she died in Sydney NSW circa 1978. I traced them to Sydney, NSW circa 1976 and our mum died in 1978. We kept in touch for a while but then sadly life moved on and I've moved several times, and they're probably married with families now. I have a daughter and grand-daughter and it would be lovely if we could be reunited with them. My name was originally Sandra Victoria Martin, dob 28.8.1944 and for a time I was known as Mason, my first stepdad! then eventually I was adopted (1957) and became Anji Waring. If you could dig up something for me it would be wonderful. Many thanks.

Sandy (or Anji) :-)
