Golby Mary Ann 1834? 2?May 1917 83 dau/Nathaniel & Harriett Parramatta All Saints NSW

The notices have her age as 85 and 12 May.

I've complained several times to ACI that they have lots of errors trying to do family history instead of making the site what it is supposed to be - a way of finding a grave location - no section - no row - no plot.

Can't be that one - arrived in Dec and from Ireland.

I can't find an arrival to NSW.

I can't find an Ann or a Mary Lemon arriving Vic.

No death for a Nathaniel Lemon in NSW or Vic. old enough to be her father.

I plan to visit the local library tomorrow so I hope to get the images of the ones in post #3.
Not sure what to believe re parents on death reg.

I can't find a marriage for Nathaniel Lemon to a Harriet.
This has to be an error.
