Hello Barbara,

Thank you very much.

This is the marriage:

William McFARLANE & Agnes McGREGOR
31 Dec 1861 Milton, Glasgow, Lanark

and her death in NSW:


Burial record has age as 47.

I don't know who the informant was but if parents are both wrong then I'm not sure about age at death either.

I'm trying to prove the information in a tree re Kilmarnock is correct.
