Matthew Andrew McDonell

  • Born: 1873, Emerald Hill 1
  • Marriage: Ethel May

  General Notes:

In 1892 there was an "Andrew McDonell" at 10 (now 8) Anderson St Sth Melb. It seems possible if not likely that this was Matthew Andrew McDonell whose parents were then living opposite. The photo on this page has on the back what looks like either "Mr McDonell" or "M A McDonell" , "10 Anderson Street South Melbourne". I'd estimate it was taken before 1900 which would have Matthew only in his twenties and this man looks a little older than that. Could it be his father? His name could have been written n the back if he had been the customer maybe having a copy made of an earlier photo?
