Then Joseph as father on the death reg in post #1 is an error.

Jemima's death date agrees with that tree.

I think that site has more accurate details than the Monaro site.

No. 10 When Baptised: ??? 21st When Born: 22nd July 1839 James Edward son of James & Jemima Barnes Abode: Allyn River Quality or Profession: Farmer By whom the Ceremony was performed: J Jennings Smith

James Edward Barnes

NSW Bap V18541252 40/1854 BARNES JESSIE - JAMES - JEMIMA

No. 344 When Baptised: April 2nd When Born: Feby. 7th 1854 Jessie - James & Jemima Barnes Abode: near Stroud Quality or Profession: Shoemaker By whom the Ceremony was performed: William M Cowper

That is odd for several reasons. A shoemaker ???

Are there 2x William Cowper ? Or is William M the son of William Cowper ??

He was employed on the Estate of the Australian Agricultural Company and they had sheep and cattle. In 1840 he was a farmer.

I don't think you learn the trade of shoemaker in that situation.
