Oh.

Thanks Geoff.

I'll have to search the Newspaper archive. I left that note in my tree but it didn't say it was for Isabella.

Stirling Observer - 2 March 1865

That must be Isabella's death.

Several Graham families in NZ with birth notices but not this one.

Searching 'Alexander graham' is no help in NZ papers.

If we assume Dunedin = Port Chalmers

I've checked all the vessels that arrived 1867-1869 and no Graham family. Passengers lists are incomplete. One vessel reported 50 passengers but only 5 names on the list.

No Frances.

Fanny aged 4 in 1841. Mother Helen had died.

I have a heap of stuff from the local library today to go through. Didn't find this marriage.

5788/1899 GRAHAM ALEXANDER - GANDON FLORENCE H - GLEBE * 29 Jun 1899 * Not CofE

I should say it might be CofE but not on that database that is supposed to be all Sydney CofE registers.
