Something is not right.

That one married Richard Siggs but the only baptism for a Rosanna is the one in post #1.

There is another family in the Goulburn area.

Birth and death of that William ??
 
Mrs. Rosanna Siggs, wildow of the late Mr. Richard Frederick Siggs, of Pejar Park, died in St. John of God Hospital this morning at the age of 91 years. ... Born at Cobbity, near Narellan, the late Mrs. Siggs was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Gallaghar. She came to the Goulburn district with her parents at an early age, ...

If parents on death reg are correct and if that obituary is correct then there is no baptism in NSW index for Rosanna.

Yet we have three things that say the above is not correct.

1. A baptism for a Rosanna in 1846 - William & Bridget

2. Rosanna's daughter married a G. Wiles. (a Siggs)

3. William died at the residence 53 Myrtle-st of Mr. & Mrs. McCooey (a Siggs - error in index with Siggo)
