Could Geoff check address for 1913 for Colin & Louisa..

For address in 1913 – try Hunter Street, Horseshoe Bend West Maitland, where son Donald Campbell McKenzie was born in 1909 and address when father/hubby Colin died in 1939..

regards
Val
 
Thanks Val.

Yes, I did mention that it's a mix of Mc and Mac.

I should have said that these are two separate families.

I was not aware of the earlier marriage.

Thanks Val.

With Windows 10 and my new monitor I can't read the images in the SMH Archive 1955 - 1995 no matter what screen resolution I try.

I've added that to my list of films to look up at the library. At one stage the library removed all the films for that period but I think they are back in the drawers.

Goulburn Evening Penny Post Sat 16 March 1895 - death of 1st wife
TARALGA.
(From Our Correspondent.)
SAD DEATH.--I regret to have to record the death of Mrs. D. Mackenzie, of Narramine, to eldest daughter of Mr. Hugh White of this town. The deceased was only 21 years of age at the time of her death, and had been only about two years married. She leaves a child a few months old. Mrs. Mackenzie had been in failing health for some time, and came to Taralga, to see if the change would benefit her, but although she received every care and attention, her medical attendant, Dr. Brown, from the first held out no hopes of her recovery, the cause of death being consumption. Much sympathy is expressed for the husband of the deceased and her friends in their trouble, and on Saturday the funeral was very largely attended, the remains being interred in the Presbyterian Cemetery at Stone Quarry, the Rev. Mr. Inglis reading the burial service of the Church.

Death of a brother of Donald’s – Goulburn Evening Penny – Thu 9 July 1931

After a short residence at Camden the family went to Taralga.Her husband the late John McKenzie, of Marmont Flat, died 12 years ago and since his death Mrs. McKenzie. had resided with her son, Hugh, near her old home. There are eight sons, all surviving: Messrs. A. McKenzie (Branxton). Donald (Sydney), George (Narrabri), Archie (Taralga); Angus, ('Fiji), John (Narromine), Charles (Molong) and Hugh (Taralga).

(From our Correspondeqt.) Death.-Mrs: H. Bensley of Richlands, who had been in failing health for some time, died rather suddenly last Wednesday at the early ago of 22 years, leaving three little children. Mrs. Bensley had been under treatment in Goulburn and Sydney for a long time, and lately showed, signs of an improvement in health, being up and knocking about the day before she died. The deceased. was a daughter of Mr. Donald McKlenzie, formerly of Burra Lake, but now of Fiji, and a granddaughter Mr. Hugh White, of Taralga, and Mr. and Mrs. John McKenzie of Burra Lake. The funeral took place on Thursday, the remains being interred in the Presbyterian cemetery at Stone-quarry. The Rev. W.

Looks like Donald was in Fiji for a fair while before coming back in 1931.
