Died on 5 Nov 1896.

Still can't find anything in Trove. Not in Old Balmain with father James.

So still don't know it Isabella remarried or not.

No, Ernest didn't die until 1933. Don't know that it was in a hospital.

Can't find in Rookwood or Old Balmain.

Rookwood.
Independent K 0001299 CHRISTOPHERSON E 29 Mar 1933
E CHRISTOPHERSON Age 70 - 29/03/1933 Zone F Independent General K 1299

Second wife Eva buried there also.

Can't find the NZ marriage in NZ papers.

Arrival from NZ might have age for Isabella.

Over 50x Mrs Ross arrived unassisted from NZ 1868 - 1886

Marriage 5089/1898 CHRISTOPHERSON ERNEST - ALLEN EVA - BALMAIN SOUTH

Is that her maiden or married name ? No notice in Trove for that one. There is one in 1946 - a son of Ernest junior to an Allen.

No birth in NSW with matching parents for Eva as Allen or Allan.

All the Eva who married an Allen in NSW had a middle name and no sign of one for this Eva.

Marriage has Eva's parents as William Charles Allen & Mary Allen.

EDIT: Eva is a spinster. Mother's maiden name = Marshall

Yes but I can't find an arrival for an Isabella Ross or a Mrs I Ross with a James or a Mr J.

Searching PROV for Unassisted arrivals is not easy.
No, similar on Anc. very little info, that said there are very few [Ross] in that period. It only takes an error in the surname and it becomes virtually impossible to find.
