John does not seem to be buried at RC Rookwood. ??


That's the right death for John but is it the right death for Margaret?

Also, is this the marriage?

Thanks,

Dave

The only progress with this one is that the MYLETT name exists in the very early days of the colony of NSW, but no birth for Margaret in the index.

Known facts

Birth 3213/1870 CULLEN JOHN THOMAS - JOHN JAMES - MARGARET - NEWTOWN * 31 Mar

John's death and buried somewhere at Rookwood.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Wednesday 29 June 1904 p.16
DEATHS
CULLEN.-June 28, 1904, at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, John Cullen, aged 66 years.

Thanks trace.

Have not seen ref to birth in NZ before.

Age at death fits 1870 better than 1872. I don't know if we have one or two families with these births:

3213/1870 CULLEN JOHN THOMAS - JOHN JAMES - MARGARET - NEWTOWN * 31 Mar
1360/1873 CULLEN JAMES FRANCIS - JOHN JAMES - MARGARET - SYDNEY
1024/1875 CULLEN FRANCES - JOHN - MARGARET - SYDNEY
2198/1878 CULLEN FRANK - JOHN - MARGARET - SYDNEY
2189/1881 CULLEN JULIA - JOHN - MARGARET - SYDNEY
9276/1886 CULLEN JOHN J - JOHN J - MARGARET - NEWTOWN


The 1904 death for John (not John J or John James) fits for the father of the John Thomas born 1870 Newtown.

If the John Thomas who died in 1946 Newtown was the one born in NZ then parents are John & Margaret or both names are incorrect.

There should then be a death with same parents for the one born 1870 Newtown.

The one who died in 1946 does not have parents matching the 1872 NZ birth. Age also does not match as well as the one born Newtown 1870 with parents that match.


The Sydney Morning Herald - Tuesday 19 June 1888 p.14

Margaret was RC. Is J. Cullen the same John who died in 1904 and is not buried in RC cemetery with his wife?

I would say the Electoral rolls show the family, minus Margaret and plus Alice Grace so it has to be the John Thomas born 1870 Newtown.

So, back to the question. Is this the marriage and can a birth be found for that Margaret and do parents agree with 1888 death?

290/1869 CULLEN JOHN - MYLETT MARGARET - SYDNEY

1888 Margaret buried RC Rookwood but 1904 John not.

Thanks Ellie.

That's an extracted record and the only one for the children so possibly connected to a church baptism.

NSW BMD have the date as 31 Mar. It can't be a baptism date on BMD because only the V records are baptisms. All records without the 'V' prefix and the Volume are births.

It is the right John Thomas so the right marriage and therefore the right death for Margaret. She is not in the 1903 roll.

John is not on the Deceased Estates Index on NSW Records.

I'd still like to find where John is buried in Rookwood. He is not in the index for RC with Margaret.

May not be much help, but are also these burials for a Margaret at Rookwood..

Cullen Margaret 54 10/12/1893 SEC*M1*5**291 Burial
Cullen Margaret 50 30/04/1904 SEC*M1*F**1088 Burial

Probably discount the 1904 burial if she is not around in 1903.
