Hi,

Still trying to find a marriage for George to Mary Agnes Clowser. The nearest I can find at the moment is George John Cowan to a Marrion Agnes Monks.
Will keep looking.

There is a birth on the transcribed index for a Ethel May Cowan 1879 Fitzroy Victoria parents George John Cowan and Mary Agnes Monks. Perhaps Mary was married Previously though I can't find a marriage.

The marriage between George John Cowan to Marrion Agnes Monks took place 1873 New South Wales. Where did the name Rachel come from as one of Georgina's middle names? As there seems to be discrepencies with her middle names.

On the birth index Allan Joseph Campbell Cowan has mothers name Mary Agnes Miller.

I'm not finding any deaths for a Mary Agnes Cowan.
