Looking for more on Maria and her parents, thanks.
 
No burial for Maria in RC Rookwood or RC Waverley.

Rookwood but not RC.

Maria Leeder
Date of Death: N/A
Date of Burial: 30 Jul 1891
Age: N/A
Plot: BBB_Zone B/#/917

No birth in NSW index for Maria if father is James.
 
Not that it is going to help but in the newspaper notice of Maria's marriage it states that she is the second daughter of James. There is a marriage in Young of an Elizabeth A Egan to a Squire Potts in 1878. Elizabeth Ann Potts dies in Young in 1939 and her father is given as James.
