April A-Z Challenge – S for Susan Waters

April 24, 2017

The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is a challenge put out to bloggers to publish a post from A-Z every day in April, except for Sundays. April 1 is A, and so on throughout the month. Bloggers can post randomly or on a theme. The theme I have chosen is ‘My Ancestors’. I used this same theme for the Blogging from A-Z April Challenge in 2015. This time the ancestors posted about will mostly be more distant members of the family. Hopefully, when combined this will form a full picture of my family history.

 SUSAN CATHERINE WATERS was my great great aunt. She was born on 5 August 1866 at Kyneton, to parents THOMAS WATERS and ELIZABETH ANN COCK.

In September 1884, Susan married ALBERT EDWARD MANCER, Rochester, Victoria. where they lived out their lives.

Sadly, two of Susan’s sons were killed in WW1.  ALBERT WILLIAM died in the Battle of Bullecourt in France at age 25  and ERNEST CHARLES died in Flanders, Belgium at age 19. Albert died in May 1917 and Ernest in December 1917.

Susan Catherine died in August 1946 at Rochester and is buried in the Rochester cemetery.
