    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ngan_Phan-Koshnitsky . Though I'm only estimating, maybe there was another girl named 'Nga Phan'...
    There was; Nga Phan is Tasmanian and I knew her but never played her, and she did indeed tie for first in the Australian Junior. Probably the strongest of the many strong St Marys girls of the time coached by Gene Clark.

    I'll look at the rest. Number 1 looks like what they call "vandalism" on the site.

    Number 1 had been there for seven years (!) and was an anonymous edit from an IP address that never made any other edits. It may have been vandalism/trolling or it may have been an experiment (sometimes people deliberately insert errors onto pages just to see how long they survive.)

    Great work! Some coincidences are amazing...
