Yeah, didn't notice at the time the A. H. didn't fit when I added that birth notice to my tree. Don't know if I found it or if it was found for me whenever.

Errors like that usually get found on second or third round through the tree.

BIRTHS
LESLIE.—On the 27th ult., at East Charlton, the wife of M. Leslie of a son.



Death 1937 LESLIE Henrietta 83 CAMERON Ewen Ann CAMERON b. Penola, SA d. Caulfield, Vic. #5080

Not in Ryerson.

Possibly an error with father and mother as Cameron ??

Can't find the birth in SA for Henrietta. Only births before 1842 are not on civil reg.

The births in SA with father as Ewen Cameron have mother as Jessy McDonald.

That's the error gibbo.

Wrong family. Death in post #1 is correct but not the birth notice.

Fine sunny day so I'm off early to work in the garden.

Found a couple of other researchers, they have nothing validated, but one quotes this for Henrietta's birth, also not validated..
"20 Apr 1854 "Wattle Range", Penola, South Australia, Australia"
