I was checking i had the right family and come across this RE Mrs James Hextell. Not sure if its a error and should be Joseph??

Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative (NSW : 1890 - 1954) Thu 18 Mar 1937

The death has occurred at Manly of Mr. Herbert James Wood, a Cudgegong native. He was a brother of Messrs. Albert Wood (Cullenbone), Arthur Wood (Mudgee) Walter Wood (Sydney) and Mrs. James Hextell (Cudgegong), to whom deep sympathy will be extended.

Hope you can follow this.

Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative (NSW : 1890 - 1954)
Thu 22 Nov 1906

Death of an Old Resident.

A very old resident in the person of Mrs. Woods, passed away at her son's (Mr. Robert Woods') residence, Flirtation Hill, on Tuesday morning, at the ripe old age of 78 years. Senile decay was the cause of death. Deceased was the relict of the late Robert Woods, who for years was the stock inspector in this district. The late Mr. Wood it was, in company with late William Blackman, who captured Charlie Johnson, the bushranger. The Woods family is a large one, and includes nine sons and two daughters, besides numbers of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The sons are Messrs. Robert (Mudgee), Arthur and John (Wiltetree), Charlie (Cudgebegong), Albert and Walter (Gulgong), Herbert (Port Macquarie), Edga (Dubbo), and Henry (New Zealand) ; the surviving daughters are Mesdames Jas. Rayner (Limestone), and J. Hextell (Cudgegong). The funeral was held on Wednesday, the remains being interred in the Presbyterian portion of the general cemetery. In consequence of the absence of a Presbyterian minister, the Rev. F. J. Branch officiated at the grave.

Ok now I'm confused.

Mary A Cafe/Leafe 1848 or Mary A Caunt or Elizabeth Caunt 1855

Two marriages for Robert??

Can't be with marriages in that order.

2x Robert Wood. 1855 marriage can't be Robert junior.

... and J. Hextell (Cudgegong). ...
It's the right obituary for Mary A, but it is Leafe?

Ok, still no birth reg for daughter Mary abt 1857. Not as Woods.

WOOD JOHN W 1990/1849 V18491990 34A ROBERT MARY A * CofE

WOOD CHARLES 2328/1852 V18522328 38A ROBERT MARY A * CofE

WOOD HALBERT J 253/1855 V1855253 53 ROBERT MARY A * Presbyterian

I can look those up on Friday afternoon.

I hope the mother's maiden name is on the baptism records.

It should be possible to sort out 2x Robert Wood.

WOOD SAMUEL 1309/1855 V18551309 42A ROBERT ELIZABETH

WOOD JOHN 5706/1857 ROBERT ELIZABETH CAMDEN

WOOD ELIZABETH 11195/1858 ROBERT ELIZABETH PICTON

WOOD MARY A 6314/1861 ROBERT ELIZABETH CAMDEN

Oh. Something is not right.

The funeral was held on Wednesday, the remains being interred in the Presbyterian portion of the general cemetery. In consequence of the absence of a Presbyterian minister, the Rev. F. J. Branch officiated at the grave.
Rev Branch is a Methodist minister. Cemetery record has burial in Methodist section.

This must be the death. There is a Flirtation Hill in Mudgee and Gulgong but not Granville.
