The name of the youngest child (the boy) is Lawrence Cavanagh Farrell. He is the youngest child of Charles and Maude. Lawrence is my father.

Ann Farrell (Black) was Mary(Mollie)'s daughter. I also have been developing the family tree from Thomas Farrell and Margaret Cavanagh(those pictured in the Darebin homestead photo MM110119). I have a Melissa Smith in my records.
