Hi Dorothy.  I found a civil birth registration for Joyce Eileen Dunstan, 06 February 1909.  Parents listed are John Thomas Dunstan and Elizabeth Jane Crombie.

Found John and Elizabeth's 1907 marriage indexed on Ancestry.

Found a couple of possibilities for John Thomas Dunstan - this one, this one, and this one.  This is just a cursory search.  I can dig a bit deeper!  :-)

Joyce Ride's death notice, 16 May 1945.  Husband's name listed as Edwin John Ride.  I suspect this is him.

Thanks Vicky for your help. Anything you find would be a welcome send. Please feel free to add to profiles. My main objective was concerning the "Barry" connection. When you follow the trail you will see a lack of information for the decendents especially Shirley Ride and her husband Allan and their children from Australia.

PS: That Death Notice from The Mercury (Hobart, Tasmania) was an awesome find Thank you!!!! 

Also going with information pertaining to John Thomas Dunstan (#3). Have posted your info to appropriate profiles. Again thanks, picked your answer as best!!!

Hoping you have time to dig further to find info on the Barry's. Mine are possibilities but not concrete and still do not have correct dates of birth or locations on that Barry family as a whole.

Thanks Tess. Yes,that is where the trail ends with her. Profiles linked to Dunstan Ride and then Barry have no birth or other information to do a search so tried Elizabeth and haven't gotten beyond her. I was hoping someone that researches Australian families might can find something.
