William Edward Meehan, son of Michael Meehan and Annie Harris.

William Edward Meehan was born at Yarrawonga on October 2, 1908, to 40 year old Annie Harris and 52 year old Michael Meehan.
William's life story as I know it is sadly lacking, because he died before he started a career or married anyone. My limited knowledge of William Meehan concerns the sad tale of he and his younger brother James both dying of tuberculosis in 1931.
James died first, aged 17, in January of 1931. William passed away on October 2 of the same year....on his 23rd birthday. He was buried in the Fawkner Cemetery on the following day.
