Thanks Val.

Canbelego is east of Cobar.

I had assumed George died 1879 - 1883 when Caroline remarried. I can't prove it's either of these:

7076/1881 DOUGLAS GEORGE - JOHN - JANE - PORT STEPHENS
5465/1879 DOUGLAS GEORGE A - WILLIAM - GRACE - GOULBURN * 28 Feb

There is a George junior as well.

George Douglas
Birth Date: 1881
Birth Place: New South Wales
Registration Year: 1881
Registration Place: Port Stephens, New South Wales, Australia
Father: John Douglas
Mother: Jane
Registration Number: 15622

Thanks Geoff.

Port Stephens seemed a very unlikely place. I can't find anything re the Goulburn death.

Caroline remarried so if George didn't die then divorce??


Marriage for George & Caroline??

Dave
 
Thanks Geoff.

Yeah, that death can be discounted..

Can't see anything on divorce in the index or Trove, there is one entry in Trove 1883, for a Douglas who committed suicide, text not to good, doesn't say if first or last name.. I'll see if I can find it again.

Year 2005 in the reg is very strange and a number over 18,000.

No late reg for marriage to Caroline.

Clara married as DOUGLAS and both birth and death reg list both father and mother.

Death 4583/1919 GUY CLARA L GEORGE CAROLINE SYDNEY * 7 Apr 1919

Caroline's maiden name might be hard to find. No parents:

Death 15582/1923 MELIT CAROLINE 75 YEARS MANLY MANLY * 23 Jun 1923

So, death for George. Only a few possibles also for a birth in England for George.
 
Not sure if more can be found from this..

Deceased Estates

No births in Goulburn with father = George A.


If Ada was born 1910 she can't be Ada Turley in 1923.

Minnie's side not Douglas side ?? Can't find the marriage.

No Minnie Douglas buried at Rookwood.
