    • His family lost track of Guy in 1910 where he was last known to be living in Melbourne, Australia. An article appeared on 24 March 1929 in The Sunday Times, Perth, saying: "WILMORE or FARLEY (Guy Wilmore), late of the Farley Trio, who was last heard of living at Dorset road or Dorset street, Melbourne, about 1910". [Since he married ten years later (1939) in East Melbourne, he must not have been far when this article was published; it is unknown if his family found him.] Anne Brooks

    Notes 
    • Guy married Alice Eleanor Fitzroy MARKEY, nee CHILTON, on 25 November 1939 at East Melbourne, Australia. Their marriage certificate stated he was age 66, a "lift attendant", and she, age 58. (Marr. cert) Alice was also musical and references to her performances as Miss Alice FITZROY or Maude RAYNOR can be found in archived newspapers. Guy and Alice had two sons, fostered two other children and adopted another. (Personal communication) Their son born in 1904, Guy Charles Willmer MARKEY, later known as Guy LEOPOLD, was born in Melbourne and died in 1980. He married Catherine HANSON, born 1903, in Melbourne in 1925. It has been suggested that the surname change to LEOPOLD was made in order to escape Alice's husband. (Constable) [4, 5]
