Trove Tuesday - Emmie Ball

Emmie Ball, a Great-aunt of Mr GeniAus, married Eric Gladstone Deadman from Liverpool, NSW. I turned to Trove to add some Emmie stories to our family tree.

This article reported that Emmie was a Bridesmaid at her Brother, Fred's wedding. 

"The chief bridesmaids were Miss Emmie Ball (sister of the bridegroom) and Mrs. Lucy Fox (the bride's sister), both wearing pale pink silk voile and carrying bouquets of pink and white chrysanthemums."

I have been adding people to my surname study at WikiTree. One of them was in Australia and another WikiTreer added some details from Trove.
