I am searching for the surname and birth details of the mother of a John Smyth from County Atrim, Ireland and having difficulties due to the spelling - Smythe, Smyth or even Smith in my research results. He married Ann Jane Wilson (1812-1874) who died in Belfast Antrim in January 1874.
I guessed as much. A lot of bankruptcy for this lot? Was it common in Australia at this time ...postboom? The other mother on that birth certificate, Susan Kinsley, (Kinsella link?) is as remote to my research as Isabella.
The cemeteries do have funny names ... Like Field of Mars, Macquarie Park but are all on the North Shore/Suburbs of Sydney (I was born in Lane Cove) Yes - all these are in my current tree. Everything I try to post as attachment is too big but I have the images of gravestones.
Yes, yes thank you, DaveHam9. I have concrete and anecdotal evidence of my Pa who is buried in Macquarie Park, a grave I have visited. He is the Carmi who died in 1960, is my grandfather and my sister who was 6 at the time of his death remembers the house and the event well. My mum was born...
They look very likely to be correct! Hopefully these names will trigger matches.
