Jessie listed as full age, spinster, born Bourke so born before 1858.

I can't find a birth for Jessie Clark/Clarke in NSW with parents that match the marriage.

Parents don't agree.

Death 15644/1920 FORSYTH JESSIE E - WILLIAM - HELEN - SYDNEY

There is no Clark(e) - Clark(e) marriage in NSW that fits with John or William and Helen/Ellen/Eleanor.

Dunno what's going on with this Ellie.

Sister is a Lynch. That would suggest if not a half sister then Martha may have changed from Clarke to Lynch when her mother Hellen/Helen/Ellen remarried. I think the witness 'Hellen Lynch' is her mother.

I also can't find the Clarke & Lynch marriage.

Forecast today and tomorrow for Sydney 39C. Some suburbs will be over 40 and will probably break the all time November record.
