I am totally confused.

Assisted 'General Hewett' 1848 Sydney and/or Newcastle Reels 2135, 2458
PARKES Isaac 60 and family
PARKES Dolly 60
Hannah 42
Susannah 38
Robert 32
Charlotte 37
John 24
Charles 19

PARKES Frederick 34
PARKES Joanah C 26
Frederick 10
Victoria 7
Celina 5

Aged 34 in 1848 so must be the 1894 death.

This is the marriage for the one who died in 1919.

NSW Marriage 989/1861 PARKES FREDERWICK - FAZAKERLY MARGARET - CHIPPENDALE * 5 Dec 1861


So where is the birth and arrival for the one who died in 1919?

Scroll a good 3/4 the page down, a number of notices as it appears his grandaughter died around the same time.

Thanks gibbo.

Something is very wrong with the details in my tree re this family.

This was the starting point.

NSW Birth 3146/1865 PARKES FREDERICK W - FREDERICK W - MARGARET - REDFERN * 13 Nov

Which pointed to the 1861 marriage. After that it seems to have gone wrong.

The 1919 is the correct death and no parents on the death reg. So born abt 1839 but where?

William for the one born 1865 but marriage and death have no 'W' for his father who died 1919.

And William for the son of the one born 1865. So not sure if the one born abt 1839 has that middle name or not.

1913 NSW Electoral Roll - ANNANDALE - JOHNSTONE-STREET POLLING-PLACE
PARKES Frederick William, senior, 268 Johnstone-street, horse-owner
PARKES Frederick William, junior, 268 Johnstone-street, chemist

NSW Death 20149/1934 PARKES FREDERICK W - FREDERICK - MARGARET - PETERSHAM * age 72

The 1861 marriage is not on the list of CofE and no notice found in Trove so far. Margaret's family were RC, but Margaret was buried CofE.

Same grave as the 1919 Frederick.

Assisted to NSW and lots of others so more than one family - perhaps 3 generations.

PARKES Frederick 34
PARKES Joanah C 26

Deaths for 2x Frederick in post #1 fit so that bit solved.

Death for Joanah ?
