One piece I can't get because I'm not a member of Genealogical Society of Victoria:

GSV - Non-member search
McCOUBRIE, M Ballarat Gazetted 22/01/1869
Age in 1886 is on Margaret's death certificate. Pob was from a search for a birth that fitted. Place of birth, 20 years in Victoria, place of marriage, age 22 when she married then listed spouse and all children of marriage.
Putting 'margaret mccoubrie/mccoubry/mccoubrey/mc coubrie' in TROVE gets no hits.
Surname: McCOUBRIE
Given Names: James
Event: Death
Father: John Alexander
Mother: Margaret
Age: 19
***: Male
Birth Place: BELFAST
Death Place: BALLARAT
Year: 1872

pher Steed, aged twenty-seven years, youngest

County Down, Ireland. Home papers please copy.
No idea if connected or not:

The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1957) - Saturday 2 April 1921 p.13
NEWBOULD - McCOUBRIE.-On the 19th February,

street, Seddon, to Doris, eldest daughter of Mrs.
M. and the late A. McCoubrie
, of Droop street,

No daughters listed on Margaret's death certificate.
Looks like a different family:

The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1957) - Saturday 14 April 1928 p.13
McCOUBRIE.-On the 12th April, at Berwick,
George Alexander McKinley, youngest son of
old Geelong pioneers, late John and Emma
McCoubrie, aged 52 years.

Nothing indicating children of a Mr L. McCoubrie.

My branch was around Gordon, Burrumbeet, Ballarat, Bungaree, ...
No, I saw that it didn't really go anywhere..

I thought I was on to something with this earlier... but can't make a link..

Thanks for looking Geoff.

I can't see how there is a connection with the date 1865.

Time to move on. :)
