Subject: [AUS-SAGEN] Property called "Chasse" at Cross Road, Kingswood SA
I'm interested in a property of about 2 acres, called "Chasse", on or near
Cross Road, Kingswood. It was sold in 1925, see:
The vendor, Alexander John McLACHLAN (a senator in SA - see ADB), was
brother-in-law of the wife of my 3rd cousin Ralph WILLIAMS (1888-1969).
Ralph's wedding was held at "Chasse" in 1914 and was reported in the press,
My questions are:
1 Does the property or house still exist?
2 Where precisely is (or was) the property?
3 If the house no longer exists, are there any images of it in the period
say 1900 to 1930?
Thanks for any help.
