Not necessarily too helpful for George, but there is an Inquest for Clara in the Qld. Archives, 1892 [If you know how to access it :eek:]

Geoff
 
This looks like Clara's burial, so can get a lead for George's residence, hopefully.

Clara Eugene Edwards

Thanks Geoff.

No idea re inquest from Qld. Archives.

Getting sick of the search function not working for the passenger lists and having to download the whole database.

Yeah. too true, still having a similar problem with one of mine [a death] from a few months ago, I don't get on too well with the Qld. Archives :(

Geoff
 
The only George Edwards I can see at mo is in Fortitude Valley, Etta married in 1907 [Noffke from Ispwich]. She would be too young to find her up to 1907.

Geoff
 
Found two tree and neither have a death for George.

Nothing in the funeral notices for William Noffke or Etta that helps re George.

William and Etta died two years apart but they are buried in different cemeteries.
