We are descendents of Charles Frederick Dickens and his son William Mckellar Dickens, born 1870 according to our records in Mansfield Victoria. We presume this is the same William McKellar you have listed born 1863. Our copy of the marriage certificate places him at 35 years old in 1905. He married Jemima Hannah Oscroft and their children were William, Ralph, Mary, Robert, Caroline Emma, Betty, Lola, and James. Caroline Emma had an Auntie Annie White who we think might be the daughter of Annie Dickens White (Mrs. Robert White that you refer to). Caroline Emma's cousin was Clifford White. The William McKellar in our line was born in Mansfield Vict. and buried in Hay, NSW. Do you have any information on this line that might conclusively tie them together and explain the 1863 vs. 1870 gap. We show that William McKellar had a previous wife and 3 children before these children listed above that we don't have information on. The 1905 marriage was a second marriage.
