Mary Campbell GALT b. abt 1849 Paisley, Renfrew d. 29 Oct 1926 Qld.

Death # B50349 Anderson Mary Campbell Niven Galt Jean Pauley

Toowong Cemetery
Anderson Mary Campbell 30 / 10 / 1926 78 years

- parents:

Niven GALT /GAULT b. abt 1820 Paisley, Renfrew d. aft 1855 ?

Jean/Jane PAULEY / PAULIE b. abt 1824 Kilmarnock, Ayrshire d. aft 1855 ?

Other PAULEY deaths in Queensland:

1870/C0072 Pauley William - - ** born Scotland aged 48 years
1910/B12573 Pauley Susan - McLean - ** born Scotland aged 82 years

William PAULEY & Susan McLEAN
Marriage: 16 Jul 1847 Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland

So it looks as though Jean/Jane and William were siblings:

name: William Paulie
gender: Male
baptism/christening date: 07 Oct 1821
baptism/christening place: , GIRVAN, AYR, SCOTLAND
birth date: 31 Mar 1821
death date:
name note:
father's name: William Paulie
father's birthplace:
father's age:
mother's name: Mary Campbell

Hence Mary's middle name Campbell. She arrived in Australia with her parents but no death have yet been found for either of them:

Assisted immigrants arriving in Sydney & Newcastle, 1844-59
Surname Firstname Events Age Remarks Vessel Year Reel
GALT Jane 28 and family Anna 1855 2137, 2468
GALT Niven 30 and family Anna 1855 2137, 2468
GALT Mary 6 and family Anna 1855 2137, 2468

Also, this is the only marriage I can see for Niven GALT:

Niven GALT & Jean POLLOCK ?
29 Mar 1844 Low Church, Paisley, Renfrew

Did he marry again ?

I can't find a baptism for Jean/Jane.
