Don't know if 1866 death is the right one. The only hit in Trove for a 'John Platt' in 1866.

1866
ACCIDENT.—A lad named John Platt, in charge
of a woodcart, yesterday, at Grassy Flat, was
trying to stop the loaded cart from going back by
placing his foot behind the wheel, but not succeed-
ing, the wheel went over his left toe, crushing the
point of it off. The lad was conveyed to the Hos-
pital, where he had the wound dressed.

Several baptisms abt 1808 in Yorkshire for a John Platt but not one on FS with parents John & Fanny/Frances.

No marriage on FS for a John Platt to Fanny Walker.

Several John Platt/Plats/Platts in Yorkshire in 1841 but not idea which one might fit.

No marriage on FS 1815 - 1830 for a John Platt to Mary O'Connell.

Marriage 1857 CAMPBELL Archibald (b. ) - PLATT Mary Ann (b. ) Vic. #233

Can't find a notice in Trove

Death 1875 CAMPBELL Mary Ann 49 PLATT John - Mary O'CONNEL b. CHEL d. Vic. #5385

Born CHEL = ?? Chelsea ? Chel= Cheltenham, Victoria but it's usual to put the pob in upper case if it is say England.

I can'f find any notices for Mary Ann's death. Since she was relatively young when she died i was hoping a notice might have given other family members name to work with or a obit for her.
