Thanks gibbo.

The marriage if not in Victoria could be in Ireland.

Well, I'm guessing Ireland not Scotland.

Thanks gibbo. :)

I can't beat that one.

I was wrong about Ireland. I do have two different Ferguson families from Ireland.

The name of the residence, Wairakei, is a place in NZ. Can I guess this time that they arrived via NZ.

Trying to find Minnie's death.

If that's the right John and the right age at death for both of them then Mary was about 4 years older.
