Thanks Val.

Father is Kerin/Keran.

Don't know what belongs and what does not.

RC baptism and RC burial but CofE marriage ??

Roman Catholic Baptisms in the Parish of Yass in the County of Murray 1854
Lucy - Tarence ? Claffey & Elisabeth Rusden Abode: Murrumbidgee Quality or Profession: Labourer When Born: Octr. 14th 1853 When Baptised: Novr. 18th 1854 By whom the Ceremony was performed: P. Magennis R.C.C.


Marriage 5100/1880 THOMSON ALEXANDER - CLAFFEY LUCY - TUMUT * 12 Oct 1880

THOMSON Alexander & CLAFFEY Lucy 12 Oct 1880 CofE TUM very definitely CofE - Canberra/Goulburn Diocese records.


Don't know if the electoral roll is the right one because I don't know who Mary is.

Don't know if it's the right burial with an error for age and middle initial.

Not a common name so only one or two Lucy Claffey. ??

Death CLAFFEY LUCY F 3288/1928 THOMAS ANNE - TUMUT

Death 3513/1899 CLAFFY KEERAN AGE 80 YEARS DIED TUMUT TUMUT

2nd Marriage 7209/1900 NAUGHTON THOMAS H - CLAFFEY ELIZABETH H - TUMUT


Death 15913/1907 NAUGHTON ELIZABETH H - JAMES MARY - TUMUT * 30 Dec 1907

Death 12377/1911 NAUGHTON THOMAS H - HUGH BRIDGET - TUMUT * 14 Aug 1911

This may be the right one if parents are wrong on death reg. Or it's the wrong baptism.

RUSDEN ELIZABETH 546/1838 V1838546 22 JOHN MARGARET

Only one death in index in Aug 1931 for a Lucy Thomson so burial day after death would fit but with errors for age and initial.

Have to find who Mary Thomson is. Her mother could also be Mary but no idea re father.

I don't have a death yet for Alexander Thomson. Large number of possibles,

RC Rookwood but not the same section - may or may not be correct.

Thomson Alexander Unk 09/03/1912 SEC*M2*N**802

Can't find a notice in Trove.

If this is the death of Elizabeth nee Rusden then one error in my tree has been found.

CLAFFY ELIZABETH 4926/1861 JAMES MARY - TUMUT

Birth CLAFFEY ELIZABETH H 18436/1872 JAMES MARY - TUMUT

That's the one who married Thomas Naughton.

Don't now if that is the right Elizabeth Rusden.

Still not sure about the death in 1912 for Alexander.

Still don't know who Mary Thomson is in post #1.


Marriage 674/1852 V1852674 38C SELWYN ARTHUR E - RUSDEN ROSE E - CT= Maitland

That Rusden does not fit anywhere. Maitland is north not south of Sydney.

Parents don't match and no marriage in NSW index before 1854 baptism and that Elizabeth would have been 16.

But no marriage or death for that Elizabeth Rusden born 1838. ??

1937 seems to be the last for a Mary Thomson in Wentworth Division.

Nothing in Ryerson 1936 - 1943 with residence as Waverley or Woollahra etc...

No birth in index after 1880 for a Mary daughter of Alexander.

4x marriages before 1930 in NSW for a Lucy to a Thomson but not one is a Lucy E.

One is ruled out - Lucy Jane

This death is a bit of a problem.

THOMSON LUCY ELIZABETH 8583/1948 ROBERT WATT - MARY - BALMAIN

Not in Ryerson

Lucy Elizabeth Thomson 1943 New South Wales East Sydney

No birth for a Mary Thomson with parents Robert & Mary. So still don't know if 1930 roll in post #1 is in or out.

Lucy Elizabeth Thomson 1931 New South Wales Wentworth

If August 1931 is the right burial with wrong initial and age out then could still be in 1931 roll.

The baptism, the marriage and all the birth reg for children all have just Lucy.

May or may not be the right Alexander in 1912. That burial is in a totally different section of the cemetery.

Don't know if a married name will help find Alexander. 3 daughters & 2 sons, Francis & Walter.

223/1916 ECCLES STUART L - THOMSON IRIS M - SYDNEY

642/1916 SMITH WILLIAM A - THOMSON EVA C - SYDNEY

308/1919 BECK FREDERICK M - THOMSON AGNES E - SYDNEY

Can't find a marriage notice to see if it says 'late Alexander ...'

Nothing much in Trove to help.

2969/1904 THOMSON FRANCIS N - MERRYFULL LILLY M - SYDNEY

Too many possible marriages for Walter.

Births
THOMSON LUCY 12819/1871 ROBERT WATT - MARY - MAITLAND
THOMSON ALICE MARION 1386/1875 ROBERT WATT - MARY - SYDNEY

but not for Mary junior.

Robert died in 1906 at 100 Hargrave-street, Paddington.

May not be that family.

Dunno Geoff.

As I said in post #1 not sure about the 1930 roll or the burial. Still not sure.

The 1931 death with father = Kerin seems to make it the right one although it the only place a middle initial is seen. Burial the day after would fit with a different initial and age a bit out. Only one death for a Lucy in August.
