Far North Queensland, Australia, Pioneers & Settlers Registers, 1825 -1920
Martha Morrison
Birth Date: 5 Oct 1838
Birth: Glasgow, Scotland ? ** No birth/baptism found that fits
Marriage Date: 10 Mar 1863
Marriage Place: Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland
Death: 23 Nov 1897
Place: Herberton
Family Members:
Martha Morrison
John Morrison
Elizabeth Reid

James Graham Jack
Elizabeth Jack
James Jamieson Jack
Mary Agnes Jack

The register lists Martha's parents but I don't take that to mean they died in Queensland. If they did then I can't find their arrival or deaths.

Thanks Val.

Don't know how that fits.

1870/C02141 Jack James Jamieson James Martha Morrison [Mary River]
1872/C02190 Jack Mary Agnes James Graham Martha Morrison

This is curious.

Death 1858 MORRISON Elizabeth (Mother's maiden name REID) Anderston, Lanark Age 62

Unlikely.

Looks like the deaths will remain a mystery.

If Elizabeth Morrison nee Reid died in 1868 why is she listed as deceased when Martha married in 1863 ?

If Martha was born 5 Oct 1838 then there is no birth/baptism record in the index.

Where is she in 1841 census? Not this one

Cert on a Tree:
On the 10th day of March 1863 at 18 Newhall Terrace Glasgow
James Jack - age 33 a cotton weaver Bachelor – father Alexander Jack also cotton weaver Deceased & Isabella Jack nee Graham Deceased. - Witness = John Jack Ministers of ?? March 12 1863 at Glasgow
Martha Morrison a Dom servant age 25, father John Morrison a Hatter Deceased and Elizabeth Morrison nee Reid also Deceased - witness = John Steel and William Jack

That says John and Elizabeth were deceased by 1863 yet a tree has death for Elizabeth in 1868.

We have age in marriage above and age here for Martha. May have been born in Dundee.

Jack Martha 23 Nov 1897 63y Watsonville Pioneer

No Geoff. That one has different parents.

Probably correct parents here:

John MORRISON & Elizabeth REID
21 Oct 1819 Dundee, Angus, Scotland
Batch: M112824

So some children probably born Dundee.

So Martha born 1834 - 1838 possibly Dundee - not found on SP and married in Lanark in 1863.

Should be in 3 census in Scotland.
