Hello,

I have just received the transcript of the following death certificate:

790/1904 SANDS JAMES 89 YRS BRAIDWOOD BRAIDWOOD

James SANDS (Altered by Geo R Williams District Registrar 26 Feb 1904 from John)
Died 24 Feb 1904 Hospital Braidwood, NSW
Old Age Pensioner - age 89
Born Glasgow Scotland - 52 years in NSW
Father & mother unknown
Supposed to have been married in Scotland

Buried 26 Feb 1904 Presbyterian Cemetery Braidwood
Reay [?] M CAMPBELL for Presbyterian Minister
Witnesses William GAULEY & Peter McGREGOR
Registered 26 Feb 1904 Braidwood 1904/790

Known facts for the James SANDS in my tree:

Born 15 Oct 1814 Torryburn, Fife, Scotland

Married 9 Mar 1844 Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland

Arrived in Australia in 1849:
Assisted immigrants arriving in Sydney & Newcastle, 1844-59
Surname Firstname Events Age Remarks Vessel Year Reel
SANDS James 33 and wife DIANA 1849 2135, 2459
SANDS Jane 32 and husband

1903 NEW SOUTH WALES ELECTORAL ROLL
*** Surname FirstNames State Address Town RollNum Division SubDivision Occupation
M Sands James NSW Braidwood 814 Eden-Monaro Braidwood Labourer

I guess the next move is to get a copy of this one:

3378/1890 SANDS JANE - ROBERT MAGGIE BRAIDWOOD

Jane ANDERSON born about 1817 - parents unknown - but birth can't be found in ScotlandsPeople nor in the fiche in Dunfermline Library.

I have a copy of the marriage certificate but it's a :D

09/03/1844 SANDS JAMES JANE ANDERSON/FR4858 M Dunfermline /FIFE 424/ 0170 0062

"James Sands Weaver Dunfermline and Jane Anderson willingly there gave in their names for proclamation in order to Marriage being regularly proclaimed and no objections made their Certificate to that effect was granted."


No NSW marriages of James SANDS and Jane...
Only one NSW birth from 1840-1900 of a matching Jane:

# 31211/1885 RUSSELL Jane Thompson Robert Maggie PATRICKS PLAIN

and she married Colin MacKENZIE in 1905.

Regards,

Dave
