    • His family lost track of Guy in 1910 where he was last known to be living somewhere in Melbourne, Australia.
      An article appeared on 24 March 1929 in The Sunday Times, Perth, saying: "«i»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".«/i»

      [Since he married ten years later (1939) in East Melbourne, he must not have been far when this article was published. "Wilmore" is an incorrect spelling of the name in this article. A living descendant has stated there was no such street or road as "Dorset" in Melbourne at that time; there was a "Dorcas" street.]
