This blog is about a family with the surname of QUINN, who at one time resided in the suburb of New Farm in Brisbane. I place this information here in the hope that someone will recognize these people and encourage them to make contact with me.

And I wonder if I ever cross your mind For me it happens all the time
John Noel QUINN, born 25th December 1926, son of Owen QUINN and Martha (nee THOMPSON) of Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, died on Wednesday the 9th of January 1991, at Pottsville in New South Wales, Australia, and was cremated at Tweed Heads. His ashes were returned to Hilda May WILLIAMS, friend and confidant of the past twenty years.
a notice which appeared in the ‘Gold Coaster Daily News’ on Friday 18th January 1991
QUINN On behalf of myself and the family of the late John QUINN, we thank all friends and neighbours, doctors concerned, ambulance services of NSW and QLD for their help and kindness during our sad loss. Hilda WILLIAMS
When John Noel QUINN retired, he and a woman named Hilda WILLIAMS toured parts of Australia in a mobile home. The last known place for Hilda WILLIAMS is Pottsville Beach North caravan park. At about the same time she could receive letters at a post office box at Hasting's Point, these two small communities being only 3 kilometers apart and some 25 kilometers south of the Queensland border in New South Wales.
Hilda was last heard of in about 2005 and it is supposed that John Noel QUINN had died prior to this time. I would welcome anyone to write to me with any information about Hilda or Noel.
