Hello,

Janet [Jessie] TELFER b. 3 January 1812 Jedburgh, Roxburghshire

So that is Janet's 2nd:

Marriage V1847812 32C/1847 TUCKER HENRY - MILLER JANNET CU= CofE Brisbane, St John's (QLD)

I've just found Janet's maiden name so I've started searching. ;)

No sign of the 1st marriage in NSW or Qld.

Regards,

Dave

No death of a MILLER 1840 - 1847 in Qld. BMD, but lots in NSW BMD.

I can't find a death for Janet / Jessy.

This does not add up - HERE

How did she die in 1838 in Scotland and then marry and have children in NSW ???

Births in NSW:

V18482910 34A/1848 TUCKER ROBERT C - HENRY - JANNET

V18502538 35/1850 TUCKER MARION - HENRY - JANET

Sorting facts from fiction. :rolleyes: I'm sorry I found that tree.

Ok, first job. Find a death for Janet.

Ha ha she remarried:

V185312 60/1853 TURNBALL JOHN - TUCKER JESSIE UA
V1853262 81/1853 TURNBALL JOHN - TUCKER JESSIE UA= United Evangelical North Brisbane (QLD)

I still get 2 + 2 = 5

I only know two things for a fact:

1. The 1847 marriage in post #1 - I don't know if that is her 1st or 2nd marriage or if Janet remarried after that. I have no death and no parents for her. I have no death for Henry.

2. Two children born in NSW 1848 & 1850 in post #3.

Jessie was a widow when she married Turnbull. Henry Tucker had died. Well course he had if she was a widow:rolleyes:

Ok found this marriage notice

Saturday 20 August 1853

At Brisbane, by special license, on the 15th August, by the Rev. Charles Stewart, Mr. John Turnbull, Kinnoul, Dawson River, to Jessie, relict of the late Mr. Henry Tucker, Sydney.

Thanks.

I think you will find lots of TURNBULL children with mother's name not = Jessie but back to Janet.

So if some of the tree is correct and the first two marriages are reversed then we have:

1st MILLER & TELFER

2nd TUCKER & MILLER

3rd TURNBULL & TUCKER
