Is it the wrong death for George, son of Alexander & Rachel?

And coincidence we have 2x George with parents Alexander & Rachel ??

There is a Kinsgton in SA.

It says George is the only son but there is a 2nd son and he died in 1884, after that 1882 marriage.

George born 3 Sep 1859 to same parents.

Also a 3rd son.

Thanks Geoff.

3 Sep 1859.

The marriage notice says only son of Elex Albion, of Kingston ... but there are three sons alive at that time and Kingston is not where Alexander senior lived or died in Qld.

Found a tree now..

Has this first marriage and first four offspring..

"Ireland, Select Marriages, 1619-1898:
Name Alexander Albin
Marriage Date 20 Sep 1849
Marriage Place 307, Kilmore Parish, Armagh, Ireland
FatherHugh Albin
Spouse Racheal Whitty
FHL Film Number101302

Lawson Albin
1853–1853
Hugh Albin
1855–1939
Alexander "Sandy" Albin
1857–1884
George Albion
1859–1919"

First two b. Ireland.

Geoff
 
Thanks Geoff.

I didn't have Lawson. I had Hugh's death but didn't know where he was born.

Dave
 
It seems fairly well constructed, though it has Alexander and Rachel both remarrying, no obvious divorce..

Has this for Alexander remarriage..

"Marriage 28 Aug 1859 Drayton, Queensland, Australia
Eliza Jane Hill
(1828–1907)"

and this for Rachel

"Marriage 4 Jan 1871 West Maitland, New South Wales, Australia
John McMeny"

I haven't checked either..

Geoff
 
These are the offspring for Alexander's 2nd marriage, from the tree.. [Nothing seen for Rachel]

"John Albion
1860–1926
Boy Albion
1861–1861
Robert James Albion
1864–1866
Anne Jane "Sissy" Albion
1867–1927"

Geoff
 
Thanks Geofff.

Rachel died as Albion in Sydney and son George died in Sydney. All the others died in Qld.

Ok, George and Rachel came to NSW. George chooses not to mention two brothers in Qld. But saying his father was in Kingston is rather odd. Or a deliberate move not to list where he actually lived.
