Thanks Keith.

I found that one but passed it by because wife was Sarah.

Does the tree have the alternative name?

I failed to find a death as Marion McPherson in Vic. or SA.

Can't find a death as Sarah - Maiden name McKay.

Arrived in Vic. later in 1854.

No births in Vic. 1854 - 1860 that fit. ??

McPherson—Died on 26th August, at Skene-
street, Newtown, Marion Agnes, eldest
daughter of David and Jane McPherson,
aged 2 years and 9 months.


I think it's the wrong death.
