Thanks Rupert.

I had to check where Wheeo was and it's SW of Crookwell. :)

I'll see if I can find something to confirm those details.

Death 5346/1893 ANDERSON MARY - JOHN - HONORAH - CROOKWELL ** 8 Sep


I can't find a death reg that fits for Henry.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Tuesday 13 March 1900 p.10
COUNTRY NEWS
CROOKWELL, Monday
Two old residents, Messrs. Henry Anderson and John Mortimer, have died.

The notice in the newspaper suggests a death on 12 March but this is the only reg I can find:

Death 1804/1900 ANDERSON HENRY - -GUNNING ** 7 Mar

so if no reg does that mean an inquest?
 
Hi there,
Did anyone find anything further about Henry’s death?
cheers, Michele
 
Hi Michele and welcome to the Forum.

Nothing further found so a bit of a mystery.

Hi there, I visited Wheeo cemetery (near Crookwell NSW) & thought I’d share some photos of Henry & Mary Anderson graves. It’s a tiny cemetery on farmland. I found it to be a really special experience & wondering if anyone else has visited?

Also, I have the Anderson family history book - see photo but am wondering if anyone has found evidence Henry was born in the Shetland Islands? The only record I could find that matched with his year of birth was not him. Henry continues to be a very mysterious man!

Appreciate any help! Cheers, Michele

Thanks Michele for the photos. I've not been to Wheeo or Crookwell. I've been to Braidwood where my Anderson family ended up. They came from W Lothian.

I don't think 7 March is correct. I think the date has been taken off the only death reg in the index the seems to fit. The headstone clearly has 12 March. As for Shetland, I have found nothing re Henry's origin.

Thanks Dave. Oh yes I know Braidwood.

Yeah it’s a challenge when there’s discrepancies with dates. Hopefully someday we can find out more about Henry. Appreciate your reply!

Cheers,
Michele
