Thanks Geoff.

Interested now in finding Mary's death.

In 1862 he married Mary Saunders, who
predeceased him by nineteen years. There
were, seven children, of whom two sons
and three daughters survive.

Researching at it's worst.. 15 public trees have Mary's death 20 May 1910 South Australia.

The death is for another Mary. Clearly daughter of the late Mr B Andrews & husband's middle name didn't raise alarm bells.

ELLIS.-On the 20th May, at Brompton, Mary
Ann, wife of George Wren Ellis, aged 70 years
Rest after wariness

OBITUARY.
Mrs. Mary Ann Ellis, wife of Mr. G. W.
Ellis, and daughter of the late Mr. B. An-
drews
, died at the residence of her Boson-in-
law (Mr. H. Evans), Port-road, Brompton,
on Friday, at the age of 70 years. Mrs.
Ellis arrived in this State 51 years ago, and
she has since resided at Hindmarsh. She
left one son, two daughters, and five grand-
children.
