JAMES WHITE CLARK
In the early hours of Tuesday, 13th June, there passed peacefully to his reward an aged servant of God in the person of James White Clark in the 91st year of his age. The late Mr. Clark was born in Wiltshire, England, in 1849, and came with his parents to Australia two years later, his people yielding to the lure of the diggings in Victoria. After some time at Ballarat they moved by team into N.S.W. etc

If that is Thomas in 1852 where is wife Rachel?

I have to go out to govt office re my pension.
 
Thanks Ellie.

If they married in Australia then arrival for Rachel ?

Obit says James arrived with his parents at age abt 2.

If they married in Australia then James was born before they married ??

No birth for a Jame White or James Clark with mmn blank.

No birth in Vic. index for James.

Thomas should be in 1851 census if 1852 is correct arrival.

I can't find an arrival on PROV for Rachel or a birth in Vic. for James.

The obit must be totally wrong re birth in England and arrival with parents two years later ??
