No age at death for Eliza.

And I can't find a tree yet that helps.

There is a gap between marriage date in 1838 and first baptism in index - 12 Jan 1844 looks to be first birth date.

Parents deaths:

4685/1881 SIGGS RICHARD - RICHARD UNKNOWN GOULBURN
2431/1891 SIGGS MARY - JOHN UNKNOWN ARGYLE

Thanks Geoff.

I was hoping we didn't get to Richard the convict a second time. :biggrin:

Yes two marriages for Mary.

Thanks for age at death for Eliza but it's more likely she is older. I'll check the baptism records again at the library for a twin and for any baptised the same day but missing from the index.

Any record for a burial for John at Hillston? If you have access to records of all those buried at Hillston then I've got others in my tree I'm sure.

Thanks for the burial record. Being a volume past 123 it's one that is not on film:

Burial V1837553 127/1837 Mc CARTHY CHARLES

Yes, a RC marriage and again one I could not look up:

Marriage V1836214 126/1836 McCARTHY CHARLES - SULLIVAN MARY - LD

Thanks Geoff. That's more than just the '1922' I get from the death reg. Lots of the country NSW ones are not in Ryerson index and not in newspapers either.

The year in the reg is the year of birth even though the V record is actually a church baptism and the baptism date can be years past the date in the index.

So I'll have to scan Vol 61:

Volume 61 Reel 5021 #1-end (3116) Bap 1840-1844 Roman Catholic
