Glass Family of Yackandandah Victoria Australia

The Glass family lived in Yackandandah Victoria Australia. They originated from Bratton in Wiltshire England. My grandmother’s sister Eileen Mackey married Joseph Glass. There are many Glass family members buried in Yackandandah cemetery.

Eileen Mackey married Joseph Glass in Melbourne on 20 November 1919. Eileen called “Sis” was my grandmother’s sister.

When my father was growing up he had a lot to do with his cousins, Joe and Bernard, sons of Eileen and Joe, even though they lived in country Victoria at Yackandandah. Because of his fondness for his cousins I have included old photos that we found in a biscuit box and information I have gathered on the Glass family in my Fanning research.

While I am not a direct Glass descendant I hope these photos and the report may be of interest to those who are directly related to the Glass family. I would love to know who the other people are in the above wedding photo.

One thought on “Glass Family of Yackandandah Victoria Australia”

  1. The photo of Joseph Glass with the baby is in fact of me, Eileen Glass. It was taken at our home at Allans Flat in 1948, the year of my birth. I have had this photo in my bedroom for decades.
    Grandfather lived with my parents Joe and Tessie and I was named for my father’s mother, Eileen Mackay. The photo is significant because it was the first time grandfather held me. He had grown up in an era when men did not have anything to do with babies and would often tell my mother not to allow my father to hold me.
