NSW Marriage 5499/1885 SMITH HENRY - GOODGER MARY A - WOLLONGONG

We need the details from film 2471 which should list his parents and if they were living in 1855.

How do we know Val they are the right parents?

If the death reg is correct parents are John and Ellen.

2x John and only one arrival found so far. Only one on the Assisted to NSW list.

The 1923 death fits my tree not the 1912 one.

If the “Rose of Shannon” one died 1912 then he is not the one in my tree.

Thanks Val.

But I still don't know if those two are sisters of the John who died 1912 or the one who died 1923.
