Also

Qld. Marriage 25 Sep 1891/C01798 Stewart James - Nixon Elizabeth

Death 29 Jan 1924/C0785 Stewart Elizabeth - James Nixon - Jane Ross

Death for James after 1924 will be harder to find as I don't have his parents yet.

1825 may be too early Val.

James Nixon to Jane Ross and then birth Elizabeth Nixon ?

William Stewart to Jane Ross and then birth James Stewart ?

Can't find either marriage on SP.

No births in Qld. index for Elizabeth Nixon or a James Stewart that fits.

Ditto the NSW index.

Ages at death would help.

Elizabeth Nixon born abt 1859.

James Stewart born abt 1859.
