Note that in the first card the writer calls Janet by the name Jenny. Did she use this name in everyday life?
It's not known whether the cards were written by George or Janet but given that letter-writing was usually done by the woman of the family, these are probably samples of Janet's handwriting.

When they left Braidwood, George and Janet moved to the Burwood/Croydon Park area where they lived the rest of their lives. This is a photo of their headstone at the cemetery attached to St Thomas Church of England at Enfield NSW. They are buried in plot 5 of Section 46
