The Argus (Melbourne, Vic.) - Thu 3 Jan 1924 p.1
DEATHS
HARVEY.-On the 31st December, at her residence Bretonne, Buninyong, Ann Jane Cavan Harvey, relict of the late Robert McFarlane Harvey, C.E., aged 86 years.

The Argus (Melbourne, Vic.) - Thu 3 Jan 1924 p.8
PERSONAL.
Mrs. Ann Jane Cavan Harvey, who died at Buninyong on Monday, aged 88 years, was a sister of the late Dr. W. Rankin, of St. Kilda, and Mr. Joseph Rankin, manager of the old Federal Bank, Melbourne.
Her husband, the late Robert McFarlane Harvey, was the first municipal and mining engineer on the Buninyong and Ballarat goldfields. ...

Can't see a 1923 death reg in Vic. Also looking for the right death for Robert Harvey. 4x Robt in Vic. index.

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks Ellie.

Must have married at 19 or age at death is a bit out. Oh 86 and other says 88. I'll check the images on Trove.

The Rankin family was from my area in Ireland - County Down.

The Argus (Melbourne, Vic.) - Tue 3 Nov 1857 p.4
MARRIED
On the 27th ultimo, at the residence of William Bailey Rankin, Esq., surgeon, brother to the bride, at Buninyong, by the Rev. G. Russell, Robert McFarlane Harvey, Esq., civil engineer, to Anne Jane, third daughter of the late H. M. Rankin, Esq., Newtownards, County Down, Ireland.

Looks like an error on death reg with father as William.
