Bap V18632084 71/1863 CLAFFEY LUCY - TARENCE - ELIZABETH * RC

I'll try to get a copy of that baptism tomorrow afternoon.

Marriage 5100/1880 THOMSON ALEXANDER - CLAFFEY LUCY - TUMUT

THOMSON Alexander CLAFFEY Lucy 12 Oct 1880 CofE TUM

1903 ?
1913 ?
1930 ?

Death 14572/1931 THOMSON LUCY E - KERIN - ELIZABETH - WOOLLAHRA * 30 Aug 1931

Not in Ryerson - Can't find a notice in Trove

RC Rookwood
Thomson Lucy G Age 71 31/08/1931 SEC*M2*9**5263 Burial

I think it's the right death and the right burial for Lucy. No middle initial on BMD index for her baptism or marriage.

Death of Alexander?

Thanks,

Dave

An error in the notice? Or the wrong death? Or a 2nd marriage I can't find?

THOMSON.-October 22 1935, at Marrickville
Hospital Alexander beloved husband of Christina
Thomson, aged 62 years.

Born abt 1873 and married 1880. I don't think so.

Wrong death.

Another error in the index

Bap V18632084 71/1863 CLAFFEY LUCY - TARENCE - ELIZABETH

Roman Catholic Baptisms in the Parish of Yass in the County of Murray 1854

The first few columns are a bit faint but no doubt about the date.

Death 14572/1931 THOMSON LUCY E - KERIN - ELIZABETH - WOOLLAHRA * 30 Aug

No idea yet if that Naughton is connected to the others in my tree.

That Claffey family and my Naughton from Ireland.

Death NAUGHTON THOMAS H 12377/1911 HUGH BRIDGET - TUMUT

Not connected to my Naughton family with parents as listed on that reg.


Death for Alexander ???
