  1. Elsie Maud MANSFIELD (Jane Elizabeth REED , William , William , Thomas ) was born 1 on 15 Mar 1874 in Adelaide South Australia. She died on 30 Mar 1946.

Elsie married 1 Richard Edward Carrick CORRELL son of Robert CORRELL and Elizabeth SAVAGE on 18 Aug 1893 in St Lukes Church, Adelaide. Richard was born 2 on 17 Oct 1867 in Woodside, South Australia. He died on 25 Feb 1930.

Richard was the third child of Robert and Elizabeth (nee Savage). He was a great worker for sport and his achievements throughout his life are set out in the following newpaper report taken from a scrapbook owned by the late Doris Gilbert: "After a long illness, Mr. Richard Edward (Dick) Correll, who was well known and respected in Adelaide sporting circles, died at his home, Anglo Avenue, Parkside on Tuesday. He was born at Woodside on 17th October, 1867, and was the son of Mr. Robert Correll, one of the founders of the Onkaparinga Racing Club. He was educated at Pulteney Grammar School, and for thirty-three years was associated with Harris, Scarfe Limited and later with the Government Produce Department. In his younger days, Mr. Correll was a good footballer. He played with Port Adelaide from 1890 to 1898 and then joined Norwood Club, and also served on the committee. He did not allow his interest in football to flag, and acted as secretary of the Veteran Footballers' Association. He was an enthusiastic worker on the the committee of the Charity Carnival. He was the first secretary of the Hardware Assistants' Athletic Association. Cricket also attracted his attention, and he won a trophy for the best bowling average in the Lyric Club for a season. Mr. Correll was well known in racing circles, being a familiar figure at the Victoria Park race tracks. For the past ten years he reported track gallops at that course for the 'The Advertiser'. His interest in the Onkaparinga Club was also great, and since 1920 he acted as clerk of scales for the coming meeting. He was justifiably proud of the fact that he had not missed a Great Eastern Steeple chase since it was first run in 1876, when it was won by "Tormentor" which was owned by his father. More than one hundred of the old comrades on the football field and sporting friends of the late Mr. Correll were present on Sunday afternoon at the Mitcham Church of England cemetery where Mr. J. H. Gosse (President of the Norwood Football Club) unveiled a memorial headstone placed over his grave through the efforts of the Veterans' Football Association".
