NSW Marriage 4467/1884 MURRAY ELIJAH JOHN - STOWE ANNIE E - PARRAMATTA

NSW Death 16713/1950 MURRAY ELIJAH JOHN - ? - ANNIE - PARRAMATTA

MURRAY Elijah John Death notice 22AUG1950 Death 90 late of Parramatta SMH 26AUG1950

It's possible his mother is not Annie. I wonder how reliable that is.

Looking for the birth around 1860 for Elijah and marriage of his parents.

Thanks,

Dave

Then I would expect Ann's maiden name to be MURRAY.

Yes. Does the occupation look as though it's the right one in 1949? The Division is right if he stayed in the area of Katoomba.
