No births for children and no marriage that fits in Vic. BDM for Alfred Riley & Sarah.

Something does not fit.

RILEY must be an error but I don't know why it says Melbourne papers.

Marriage 1894 * can't find

Maryhill, Lanark
James MACFARLANE & Mary WYLIE

Also can't find a birth around 1872 for a Mary A R Wylie/Wyllie.

James is not here.

McFARLANE William 44 and family
McFARLANE Agnes 40
William 19
Allan 13

He must have arrived between 1898 and 1913. I presume with Mary and two children.

Ok, finding bits I didn't have.

Death MACFARLANE MALCOLM JAMES 54836/1973 JAMES MCGREGOR - MARY ANN R - BULLI

The birth for Malcolm Mc can be ruled out.

No Geoff.

Problem with no hit in SP for marriage or births of children - may have been twins.

James had 9 siblings and they all died in NSW so don't know why it says Melbourne papers.

I can't find James in 1891 on FS.

DEATHS
MACFARLANE.-September 24, at his residence Kilmarock, Underwood-rd., Homebush, James McGregor, late of Ultimo tramway depot, the beloved husband of Mary MacFarlane, aged 55 years.

FS does not have 1901.

Not 1909 Nepean - Granville * I looked that up at State Library years ago.

Parents William and Agnes also died in Sydney.

Paper says residence is 'Kilmarock'. Agnes was born in Kilmarnock.
Was thinking this for 1881, but Kilmarnock is about 25-30 miles SW of Glasgow?
