Sorry, no sign in TROVE and no luck with the cemeteries I've tried.

DEATHS
HAMILTON.-On September 24, (result of accident), James Hamilton, of Longwarry, loved brother of Nellie, Cis, and John (deceased), aged 77 years.

FUNERALS
HAMILTON.-The Friends and Relatives of the late JAMES HAMILTON of Longwarry, are respectfully informed that his remains will be interred in the Drouin Cemetery.
The funeral is appointed to leave J. D. Grubb's mortuary, Drouin, THIS DAY (Wednesday) at 2 p.m.
J. D. GRUBB PTY LTD, Funeral Director.

Using pet names - sisters are Mary and Ellen - married CAMPBELL brothers. :)

Thanks gibbo. :)

I dunno. :rolleyes: Curiously that tree omits 2 siblings. He had 2 sisters and 2 brothers.

The HAMILTONS are 100% Presbyterian. Why would my John, who as far as I know spent his life in Victoria, be in Marrickville, NSW to get married?

Is he the only one who married a Catholic? Is there more than one John HAMILTON who died in Victoria in 1937 aged 71 or 72?

One thing you may not realise. A sister of Mary McCARTHY married at the same time - consecutive reg #.

It would be very interesting to find the church in Marrickville.

Perhaps even a double wedding. :eek:

I can't get "Why Catholic - why Marrickville" out of my head. :2fun:


I don't know if it is this church or if the register has been filmed - HERE

I'm not accepting that tree without some more evidence.

In the index twice - Something was changed on the record in 1927:

Birth
13455/1927 HAMILTON JOHN - JOHN - MARGARET - SYDNEY
13455/1927 HAMILTON JOHN - JOHN - MARGARET - SYDNEY

I wonder if he married in 1927.

Possible
Death 10343/1955 HAMILTON JOHN - JOHN - MARGARET - MARRICKVILLE

No age at death:

HAMILTON John Death notice 16APR1955 Death late of Hurlstone Park Sydney Morning Herald 18APR1955

I'll look that one up next week when I go to the library.
