Looking for Mary/Jane's death, thanks.
On Jane's image of her marriage one of the witnesses is a Fanny Sheils. I tried tracing her hoping something might pop up and mention a sister[?] Jane / Mary but i can hardly find a thing on Fanny. There was a Fanny Sheilds who married a Thomas Butler but i can't even find any births for kids they may have had etc.

Thanks gibbo.

I've not tried tracing Fanny. I expected Mary/Jane to remarry within a few years.

2654/1873

That is the next reg number. Accident or coincidence??

A tree has Mary born Scotland 1847 and her death in 1873, no place given.
That is a daughter, she was born in Tasmania. I cant find a death notice or anything to see if her and her father died the same time.

No mention of the child that died, one would have thought if they died the same time that both would have been mentioned and it mentions 3 children so she was obviously still alive then.
