No baptism in Argyll for Mary with parents that match NSW death reg.

Can't find a marriage that fits for Donald.

No McKenzie baptisms in Argyll 1810 - 1825 with mother = Christina/Christian


The property in NSW was named Strathairn.

Moree Gwydir Examiner & Gen Advertiser – Mon 17 June 1929 – Orbit - Mr A McKenzie

The death occurred in the Moree District Hospital on Friday of Mr. Alexander McKenzie, The deceased,
we understand, followed the occupation of a drover, and in his young days was a very fine horseman. He was 66 years of age, and a single man. A brother William McKenzie resides in Kiama. The funeral took place on Saturday morning, the remains being interred in the Presbyterian portion of the cemetery. Rev. H. Bloomfield officiated at the graveside. The mortuary arrangements were carried out by Messrs. Logan and Co.

Thanks Geoff.

No death in NSW index with the right age for an Alexander McKenzie with parents Donald & Christina. No marriage and no baptism for children on SP for such a couple but that does not prove one or both parents on Mary's death reg are wrong.

The witness has to be a brother or a cousin but not father.
