Hello,

Thanks gibbo. :)

I had not got that far. :biggrin:

Was looking for a remarriage and death for Johanna.

2787/1953 WALLACE JOHANNA WILHELINA 81 YRS NARRAWEE CHATSWOOD

Not in Ryerson or TROVE that I can see.

If Joseph did remarry why is Johanna not in 1903 E/R with him?

Birth 413/1905 WALLACE CORNELIUS L - JOSEPH - JOHANNA - SYDNEY

Where is the death for Cornelius Leopold? Oh, Qld.

Death 1962/B50181 Wallace Cornelius Leopold - John - Johanna

Think i stuffed up :confused:Johanna was supposed to be married to a Joseph not a William :rolleyes:
 
Not so sure, gibbo. :)

WALLACE/WALLIS is a very common name.

Joseph was born 1850 so I doubt his father died around 1952.

The trees have no death for William or Catherine or Johanna.
 
Yeah. Apples on a lemon tree. :2fun:

Huge number of deaths for a Catherine WALLACE.

According to one tree for Catherine:

Date of Conviction: Age: 20
1837 Carlow

I can't find her in transportation database or on NSW Records site.


I'd better check the fiche again for others at the address besides his son:

That Catherine who arrived in 1829 might not be the right one.

Yes. :biggrin:

I think the RC one is out. I think the 1815 one is too early. I think the 1837 one is too late. I'd better find one more Catherine.

The tree has no death. It won't be easy finding the right death for either Catherine or William.
