Hi Dave

Long shot time :biggrin:

There are a couple of trees that have the correct birth and death details and this:

John Hamilton
Spouse: Margaret Mccarthy
Date: 1893
Place: New South Wales
Reg Place: Marrickville, New South Wales
Reg Year: 1893

There is a John and Margaret in Melbourne S. up to 1937 in the E/R.

Thanks Geoff.

John is another of those easy ones in my tree. :biggrin:

Looks as though I'll have to get a copy of that marriage one day.

If you think that is difficult look for any trace of his cousin Linden McCOUBRIE aged 25 in 1886. :)

Death of John's aunt in Victoria:

No 1536 9 October 1886 Glen Park Shire of Bungaree County Grant Margaret McCoubrie Female 54 years Exhaustion Hydatid of Lungs and Liver 12 months Dr Womaski ? 22 September 1886 James Hamilton Farmer Ellen Hamilton MS Newell - 11639 - John Morris Assistant Undertaker employed at Funeral Ballarat East Wm D McKee 11 October 1886 Ballarat East 11 October 1886 Cemetery Ballaarat C Morris - Carter McSully ? John Morris - Ballynahinch Co Down Ireland 20 years in Victoria - Ballynahinch Co Down Ireland of 22 years John Alexander McCoubrie - James deceased Linden 25 years

Is this a sister?

Marriage 4731/1893 NEALE ARNOLD I - McCARTHY MARY J - MARRICKVILLE

Looks like a double wedding with consecutive reg #.

I wonder why John would be in Sydney? No relations there at all. Aunt and uncle and cousins and siblings all in Victoria. One uncle in north Queensland (my branch).

Is John buried in Fawkner?

The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1956) - Monday 18 August 1941 p.
FUNERAL NOTICES
HAMILTON.-The Friends of the late Mrs. MARGARET HAMILTON (widow of John Hamilton) are respectfully invited to follow her remalns to the place of interment, the Fawkner Cemetery.

It's possible there is more than one John and one Margaret.

Don't know about Limerick and don't know any death has been found in Australia for John Alexander.

Miss Margaret HAMILTON Magheradrool daughter of James Hamilton aged 20 married John McCoubrie on 21 Jan 1853

McCoubrie John 1853 Parish: MAGHERADROOL (PR)
Action Source Surname First Name Year County

John, Linden and his father John Alexander probably as tough as any in my tree will ever get. :D
