Marriage of John Grant and Mary Sweeney ?? Can't find it in Qld., NSW or Vic. index.

Can't see any births in NSW index that look to fit. Born Glebe age 32. ??

I can't find any tree that helps.

It does look more like middle name is Eva not Ann.

Deaths in NSW index 1900 - 1924 no Mary E Grant. And 2x John J but a long way from Sydney.

Not easy trying to find deaths of Joseph and Mary.

NSW BMD very slow. I get this topic if I google. I don't think that helps.

Yeah, not an easy one, Dave.. Perhaps one to chip away at from time to time.

I've checked the 1903 and 1913 can see John'/Joseph' and Mary' but none together at the same address [no carpenters]. They were both dec. in 1924, as you say with no deaths yet, difficult to confirm anything.

I'm still here. :)

Dunno now Geoff.

I'd better remove that marriage from the list to be sent to BDM. A 'D' is not like a 'J' so not John Joseph swapped.

A marriage before 1890 to a Mary Sweeney.

Still not sure if middle name is Ann or Eva.

Yeah, difficult to make a case for Dordan = John! Not sure how popular the name Mary Sweeney would be at that time.

Is that baptism RC? It does not say but lots of names in that IGI batch would indicate so.

christening: 22 May 1881 Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Thanks Geoff.

The 1924 marriage was CofE but both parents could be RC. No matching burials in RC Rookwood.

Only that one marriage in NSW index for a Mary Sweeney.
