Marriage 1857 CAMPBELL Archibald (b. ) - PLATT Mary Ann (b. ) Vic. #233

Death 1875 CAMPBELL Mary Ann 49 PLATT John Mary O'CONNEL d. Vic. #5385

Can't find a notice in Trove for Mary Ann. Not buried in one of the Bendigo cemeteries.

Looking for Archibald's death. Lots of hits in Trove but nothing that fits with names of children.

Thanks,

Dave

The Australasian (Melbourne, Vic.) - Sat 9 Dec 1882 p.11
MARRIAGES
CAMPBELL - MAXWELL.-On the 21st ult., at the residence of the bride's parents, by Rev. J. A. Marsland, assisted by Rev. H. Saloway, William James Campbell, of Sandhurst, to Frances Henderson, eldest daughter of W. H. Maxwell, Coleraine.


Does not mention parents. Mother had died. Perhaps Archibald had also.

Deaths for 14x Archibald between birth of youngest child in 1866 and 1882.

Place of birth as Glasgow may not be correct.

Death 1877 CAMPBELL Archibald 41 Donald - Marion COLE b. Glasgow d. Vic. #3595 Spouse PLATT Mary Ann

Ignoring pob I can't find a family that fits in Scotland in 1841.

Did the family leave Scotland before 1841?

No other Campbell deaths in Victoria with parents that match.

Over 120 deaths in Victoria for a Donald Campbell.

Can't find a death in Vic. for Marion/Marian listing father as Cole.
