NSW Bap V1855248 53/1855 WHITTAKER MARIA - EDWARD - NANCY

Baptisms in the District of Bligh in the County of - 1855
Maria - Edward Whittaker & Nancy Neale Abode: Harringan ? Marringar ? Quality or Profession: Labourer When Born: Sepr. 1 1852 When Baptised: June 20th 1855 By whom the Ceremony was performed: Alexander McEwen

I can't read or place the abode but it's near Coolah, Dunedoo, Cassilis.

That seems to be the only birth/baptism in the NSW index.

Looking for the marriage of Edward to Nancy and their deaths, thanks.

No Whitaker/Whittaker death in NSW index 1855 - 1856.

Looking to see if Nancy died and Edward remarried but he is listed as a bachelor in this marriage actually in 1856.

NSW Death WHITTAKER EDWARD O 9499/1908 STEPHEN - HARRIET - GRANVILLE

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/157667426
Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative (NSW : 1890 - 1954) Thu 20 Aug 1908 Page 13
Long Creek Mems.
One of the old pioneers of the gold
fields passed away in the person of Mr.
E. O. Whittaker, aged 85 years. I can
recollect him in the early fifties. His
son, Mr. E. S. Whittaker, was the lucky
discoverer of the Golden Gate in 1895,
which led to the opening up of the
Golden Lily (out of which fortunes have
been won), the Coronation, which should
in the near future prove a bonanza ; also
the Nil Desperanrtum equally so.

I can't find a birth in NSW index for E. S. Whittaker.

Edward & Elizabeth.

NSW Death WHITTAKER EDWARD S 19566/1913 EDWARD S - - MUDGEE

Looks like another error in the index with middle initial.

There is another Edward Whittaker in Sydney.
