Just found a tree that has Jean and Susan's parents as George Donald 1806 Ayrshire - 1870 Yass and Jean Galbraith 1811 Ayrshire - 1894 Yass.

Jean Galbraith's parents are: John Galbraith and Agnes McNish.

So, Jean would fit but not George (Deniliquin)

Thanks Geoff.

Some things fit and some don't.

I can't find a death in or near Yass around 1870 for George.

The death for Jean would fit however I believe she married in 1858:

2971/1858 PATTERSON JOHN - DONALD JANET - YASS

Bap V18444914 47/1844 DONALD JANE - GEORGE - JANE

Presbyterian Baptisms solemnized in the Parish of St Andrews Scots Church, Sydney in the Year 1844
26 June - 5 Feby. 1844 - Jane - George Donald & Jane Galbraith - Sydney - Stonemason - Rev. J. McGarvie D.D.


We have the usual Jane/Jean/Janet bit.

Death 8 Feb 1890/C0601 Patterson Janet - George Donald - Jane Galbraith

No age at death:

Died as Jean G in 1894 at Yass.

EDIT: correction

No luck searching TROVE in 1894 for any notice. I searched for 'donald' AND 'jean' and no hits.
