Certificate no 3420
Deposit no 2771

Parents match but don't know if this is the right death or not because Springwood is not near Bathurst.

Death 11355/1915 WALLIS JOHN - JOHN - ANNE - SPRINGWOOD ?

Not in Ryerson - Can't find a notice in TROVE - so no age at death.

2nd marriage (Presbyterian) for John:

Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal (NSW : 1851-1904) - Wednesday 15 August 1860 p.2
MARRIED.
On August 9th at Evans' Plains near Bathurst, by the Rev. J. B. Laughton, John Wallis of Bathurst (formerly of Arthurstown, Ireland,) to Jane, only daughter of the late William Carroll of Bathurst.

I can't find a birth or death for Jane or the right father for her.

How many do we have or how many married twice? :biggrin:

1212/1860 CARROLL WILLIAM S - McLEAN CHARLOTTE - BATHURST

I don't have Jane's death so I don't know if it lists her mother's first name.

In the index Bathurst is just a registration district.

Barraba has to be an error. That is not as per the NSW govt site. Someone has read Bathurst as Barraba somehow.

Other marriages in Bathurst. Don't know yet if any are siblings of Jane:

1198/1860 AYLING JOSEPH - CARROLL CATHERINE - BATHURST

1286/1860 MURPHY WILLIAM JOSEPH - CARROLL ANNE BRIDGET - BATHURST

1248/1861 BYRNES EDWARD - CARROLL MARY - BATHURST

1363/1862 BELL CHARLES - CARROLL BRIDGEL - BATHURST

1690/1868 WILLCOX JOHN - CARROLL CATHERINE - BATHURST

This one for example:

Death 2586/1858 CARROLL WILLIAM AGE 57 YEARS DIED BATHURST BATHURST

Says he died in Bathurst. The last Bathurst is the district where the event was registered. Those two colums don't have to be the same.

We know one William was a convict. If he happens to be RC then we can probably rule him out. Then we have to decide if we have 2x or 3x William.

I can't find a tree that has John & Jane.

There's another John who must have arrived 1860 ish from Wexford, sponsored by a Julia Sterne, but he was a labourer, have discounted him.
