Personal Notes:
Apart from raising their own large family, Florence and Peter Johnson adopted a son Leslie Allan born in 1907. After winning a scholarship, Les attended Townsville Grammar School from 1921-1925 and later gained a BA degree. Les died on 17 Aug 1964.

Leslie Allen B. 24-Feb-1907 has two birth records under the same number 1907 / 006757, one surname "Atkinson" the other "Johnson" but NO father is listed. Question , who is "Johnson" ??? Is there a family secret here ??

Combined with his Birth records (Atkinson & Johnson) and Death record (Johnson) I guess that's makes him a "JOHNSON".

Beatrice Blanche NEWTON gives birth to Leslie Allen who has no dads but two names (Atkinson and Johnson). I can understand the Atkinson (her dad's name). But she (Beatrice Balnche) was born early too. So, her name was NEWTON, not ATKINSON. Very confusing. Who was the Johnson?

- Notes: The other problem with her "evidence" is that she, unlike your mother was an orphan, losing both her parents. Her mother Beatrice (Atkinson) died when she was very young in a typhoid epidemic. Her father remarried but within a short time was killed in a mine accident. The step mother now without a bread winner was left with two young children who were not her own and apparently did not cope too well. This lead to a famous family story where (Great) Grandma Atkinson made an epic journey (including a stagecoach section) to snatch the children. However she herself was doing it pretty tough and couldn't cope with two extra mouths to feed so my mother was kept and raised with her uncles and aunts (she regarded them as brothers and sisters.) Her brother Les was adopted by a wealthy family and he did pretty well for himself. He got a university education (apparently brilliant and a superb athlete) and became a school teacher. He was principal of the high school at Sarina for many years.
