DEATHS.
The death took place at Tooyal on Tuesday last, of Mr. John Holden an old and respected resident of some years. Deceased suffered for some time with cancer in the lip, which eventually resulted in his death. Previous to his residence he spent many years of his life in Victoria, being a native of the sister State. Deceased was 63 years old at the time of his death. ...

Birth not found in NSW or Vic. index.
 
Parents
Marriage V18414374 74B/1841 HOLDEN THOMAS - Mc DONALD MARY - JC= Presbyterian Woollongong

They are both from Scotland and I don't have anything on either of them before that marriage.

Death 1882 HOLDEN Thomas 67 Unk Unk UNK d. Yarroweyah, Vic. #10539

Death 1911 HOLDEN Mary 86 (HOLDEN error) John ? Sarah ANDERSON d. Numurkah, Vic. #10446

Something very wrong with that death reg but it's the only Mary Holden in the index in 1911.


Thanks,

Dave

Some trees have this for Thomas..

Others just have b. 1815 Glasgow.

Thanks Geoff.

Seems no record on SP for either of them.

The trees are full of errors such as that one that has March 1911 for Mary.
