NSW Marriage 3750/1888 BURNET JOHN H - CADY MARY GOULBURN * 24 Sep

No notice found in Trove.

NSW Death 18761/1937 BURNETT JOHN HUNTER - JOHN - MARGARET - BURWOOD

Cootamundra Herald (NSW) -Thu 2 Sep 1937 p.2
OBITUARY
MR. J. HUNTER BURNETT
The death occurred at his home, 19 Cole street, Concord, on August 18, of Mr. J. Hunter Burnett, at the age of 75. Deceased, who was born at Goulburn, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. J. Burnett, entered the Railway Department after leaving school...

NSW Births ??
7462/1862 BURNETT JOHN S - JOHN - MARGARET - EDEN
9249/1867 BURNETT JOHN - JAMES - ELLEN - GOULBURN

What to believe? If parents on death reg are correct then the Goulburn birth does not fit even though it fits for age. I'm not worried abut the initial 'S' as the index is full of errors with middle initials. The obituary would have to be wrong with age and Goulburn.

If he was born 1862 he would have been 16 then, but if he was born 1867 he would have only been 11. Aged 16 would seem more likely.

I think the Eden one is correct and the obituary wrong with age and born Goulburn.

Mary's father.

Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW) - Tue 11 Feb 1908 p.4
OBITUARY
Mr. Alfred Cady, an old resident of Goulburn, died on Friday at Cootamundra, where he was on a visit to his daughter, Mrs. John Burnett. Deceased was born 78 years ago in Suffolk, and came to Australia 50 years ago. He spent many years at Camden following farming pursuits. He came to Goulburn later, and was well-known throughout the district. The cause of death was senile decay. He leaves one daughter and four sons.
