I'm afraid I don't have anything on the Coopers which you mailed the list
about but I was wondering if you could confirm the Dale link in your name.
I am trying to trace to the family of my grandfather, Jack Dale, who was one
of 5. Their father was William Dale and mother Eva Cowling. He had a
brother, Alan, who moved to Queensland from the UK, probably Brisbane, after
WW2 with his wife Elsie.
Alan and Elsie had several children, I have names for 4 but am aware there
was a 5th whose name I don't have. They were all boys - Jimmy, Andrew,
Robert, Lawrence and another.
Does any of this sound familiar as we have lost all contact with this side
of the family?
Pingelly, Western Australia
