369/1878 SLOMAN George (b. Bristol) & FITZWATER Alice Maria
1494/1870 FITZWATER Alice Maria (b. NSW) & SLOMAN George

That marriage looks to be in Victoria but so far I can't find anything in TROVE to confirm which year.

Don't know what is going on Geoff.

The marriages in post #1 with the place of birth you get for the name on the left of the page came off fiche at the State Library. If you look up the two parties then you usually get both pob.

Next time I go to the library I'll have to look up Martha Ferguson.

So 2x George or George married twice so there should be a death for Alice. ??

Death 4428/1875 SLOMAN ALICE M - WILLIAM J - ELIZABETH A - ALBURY ** 2 May 1875

I'll look Martha up and get her pob.

I knew Alice had died but didn't know of Martha. I had not followed Ryerson to look at the actual death notice for George.
