Totally stuck Geoff.

No births, not ages at death to give a clue when children born and Edward died.

The 1872 Braidwood marriage should be on film at State Library.

Must be the right marriage in Brisbane. Meffin = Miffan

Possible remarriages

1873 C471 Elizabeth Dennis - Richard Rendall

1884 B8866 Elizabeth Dennis - Samuel Harrison

No death as either with father = Miffan.

One tree does not include daughter Elizabeth.

Still can't find the right death for Edward Dunn.

Seems James Dennis was a convict from Kent.

DENNIS James Earl Grey 1838 43/2872 Ticket of Leave [4/4183; Reel 951] District: Moreton Bay; Tried: Kent Dover QS

DENNIS James Earl Grey 1838 45/0680 19 May 1845 Certificate of Freedom [4/4398; Reel 1020] TL 43/2873

Catch you later Geoff.
