An Ancestry tree has Agnes Brash being the daughter of John Brash and Agnes Drummond. See documents forum. She was born around 1825 Canongate, Edinburgh. The tree has her marrying Robert Kyme prob in Australia and dying on 1 Dec 1903 Eaglehawk, Victoria. Can you help me find out when she went to Australia and if the death info and parents are correct?

Hello Barbara,

No Agnes BRASH in Assisted or Unassisted to Victoria.

Can't find them in 1903 Electoral Roll in Victoria or find any Will or Probate record for either in Victoria.

Every time I search this one crops up in Victoria:

Springvale Botanical Cemetery Kyme John Robert Cremated 17/05/1960

The Kyme name is more common than I expected. There are several families.

No burial for any Kyme in Eaglehawk or nearby cemeteries.

This search page searches through the Cemeteries within the Trust including Axedale Cemetery, Bendigo Cemetery, Eaglehawk Cemetery, Kangaroo Flat Cemetery, Neangar Memorial Park Crematorium and White Hills Cemetery.

At the time I first found them I didn't know it was Robert Bolton Kyme we were after.

1903 death for Agnes ?

Vic. BMD now 45 min past the time the site was due back on line.

That one died 1918.
