Thanks Val.

I've had no luck finding a birth for Elizabeth.

I have Wylie and Malcolm in my direct line but earlier than the James & Mary Newlands marriage.

Still can't find a birth for Dorothy or Elizabeth.

Was the family still in Queensland between 1865 and 1884?

There is a William Lyons in Warwick from 1860s through but he is still there in 1888.

I think this is the right one:

Death 7 Jul 1885/B17958 Lyons William - Daniel Lyons - Elizabeth Sullivan

Perhaps Ireland explains the failure to find Daniel's marriage.
