No age at death to really confirm that Jane born 5 Feb 1844 Sydney married as Janet on 29 Aug 1858 and died as Jean G in 1894 at Yass.

No luck searching TROVE in 1894 for any notice.

2 ages noted for her in her death notices :rolleyes:

The Sydney Morning Herald

Inquest Place: Yass
[Congestive apoplexy]

So he is the husband to the one who died in 1894. Her 1894 obit says he husband had drowned in the Yass river.

The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser (NSW : 1843 - 1893)

GrENERAL NEWS.

Mr. George Donald, of North Yass, has been drowned in the river there. It is supposed that he was attacked by apoplexy whilst bathing.

Thanks, Dave. But post #18 reads as Janet b. 1844 and d. 1894... my mistake..

Geoff
My mistake corrected in red.

No age at death for Janet who died 8 Feb 1890.


25 in 1837 shipping record does not fit for 90 or 84 in 1894. 90 is a wild guess.
