Birth JOHNSTONE ELIJAH J 5222/1860 GEORGE - ANN - BERRIMA

Ok, no other births and no sign of the marriage of George to Ann.

I think that's a fake name Johnstone and a fake husband George.

Something is not right. Elijah says he was born Berrima.

1884 MARRIAGES Solemnized in the District of -
No. - May 8 1884 St. John's Church Parramatta
Elijah John Murray - Bachelor - Berrima - Builder - 23 - Parramatta - Hugh Murray & Ann Cannon -
Annie Elizabeth Stowe - Spinster - - 18 - Balmain - Thomas Stowe & Emma Sewell Smith - Millwright
Married in the Church of St. John Parramatta According to the rites & ceremonies of the Church of England
Parties signed: Elijah John Murray, Annie Elizabeth Stowe
Witnesses signed: Charles John Purdue, Lillie Allen
By me W. I. Günther Officiating Minister

The transcription for that marriage has Johnstone and Stone.

Stowe could be taken for Stone but Johnstone for Murray??

There is this marriage.

Deaths for 14x Hugh in NSW index and not one in district of Parramatta.

No death in index in Parramatta for an Anne either.

Can't find the Proctor - Cannon marriage. Perhaps it never took place.

I have one Proctor and one Procter family in my tree and the spelling get swapped all the time even with members of the same family at the same address in the same electoral roll.
