Frederick Lascelles Verton. 1890/1905
Parents were Robert Verton and Elizabeth Pennivale Dow whom we surmise came to Australia late 19th century. Robert was a mining agent.(He may have arrived with large contingent of Americans during the Australian gold rush) Frederick married Jeanette Fletcher in 1897 and they had three children.
After birth of third child in 1902 Frederick disappeared. He may have taken the third child, Roy Leslie Verton with him.
