Frederick Richard DUTTON and Emma Elizabeth DOUGALL

Following on from the previous post, Frederick and Emma had 3 children, and like his father, he died at a relatively young age (44 years).
The children were in their teens at this time:

Joan Shirley - 18 years
Frederick Richard - 16 years
Marjorie Loretta - 14 years

The year was 1952 - cause of death Coronary occlusion/coronary insufficiency.
Not knowing any of my mother's family has led to me only having details gleaned from indexes and war records. So I know that in 1936, Frederick & Emma were listed on the Queensland Electoral Roll for the district of Brisbane, sub district Fortitude Valley and were residing at 2 Helen Street TENERIFFE. Frederick's occupation was listed as Cleaner. (death certificate shows the same occupation).

He enlisted in the Australian Army for WW2 (Service No. Q153191) and the date of enlistment is shown as 15 May 1942 at the Valley. Date of Discharge was 10 Feb 1947 and he had the rank of Sergeant.

I often wondered whether there was a genetic health problem with some of the Dutton males, for them to die at a young age.

At this stage I have no family photos of either Frederick or Emma.
