In that case, I think the marriage and death in SA is a different person. Sorry :-(

Hi Allan

I thought I had found his death in NSW in 1895 but there was a matching birth in 1895 so that Douglas died as a baby.

He could have gone to another state, of course. But I can't see him in WA, Vic or Qld. Not that that means he wasn't there necessarily!

Sorry
:-(

Hi Cherilyn,
Can you try for a burial in Victoria if you have any such records.I'm interested in a Catherine Rogerson(nee Bryden) born c.1828 in Dumfriesshire Scotland though on the passenger list on the ship Port Augusta arriving Hobart from London 31-1-1887 she gives her birth year as 1839.Her daughter Agnes Bryden Brook was buried in Bunyip,Victoria in 1926.Many thanks,
Joan

Hi Joan

Here is her death:

Surname: ROGERSON
Given Names: Cath
Event: D
Father: Bruden Wm
Mother: Ellen BROWN
Age: 73
Death Place: Melb S
Year: 1906
Reg. Number: 14172

She is interred at Boroondarra Cemetery in Kew. See http://www.kewcemetery.com.au/FindGrave.aspx

Name ROGERSON, CATHERINE
Date 30-Nov-1906 [burial date]
Grave Location WES B 0105
Section Name Wesleyan
Grave Type (not recorded)

With her is her husband Wm ROGERSON, who died in May 1915, and grand-daughter Ellen May ROGERSON (daughter of Jno Gibson ROGERSON, who died aged 46 in 1909, both in Hawthorn), and a stillborn baby Brasher, whose 1904 death I can't find. John and his wife are also interred, in a different section, at Boroondarra.

John's will/probate record is available to view online at http://www.prov.vic.gov.au/indexes/index_search.asp?searchid=54

Let me know if you need anything else, such as marriages or deaths for the other children of Wm & Catherine. :-)

Cheers
Cherilyn

Hi Cherilyn, I'm not sure you can help me with this one, (because of the dates) but thought I'd give it a try! As some of the people are alive I'll PM you with those details, but they start with one Edna Johnson born c 1922 in England. Edna came to aus as an orphan when she was quite young. She married a Barry Haydon I think in NSW and had several children (and those are the details I'll pm you). What I'm trying to find if possible is her marriage and death, the latter I think happening about 1996 again in NSW. I'd love to find her children as they are cousins of mine that I never knew about! Thanks in advance, regards Linda :)

Hi Michelle

You could try here
http://www.archives.qld.gov.au/research/index/immigration.asp

His marriage or death cert would give you more clues about his life but Qld certs are quite pricey.

Was he previously married? 1924 seems late for a 1st marriage if he was born in 1873...

Henrietta Maud died in 1961 in Qld (reg C1065), dau of Wm & Henrietta Jane (nee BEASLEY). She was born in Qld in 1896 (reg C10061). Her parents married in Qld in 1893 (C1521).

All the best
Cherilyn.
