Marriage 1854 HARREX George Thomas (b. ) - CARR Mary (b. ) Vic. #4745x1905

Death 4045/1862 HARREX Mary 38 CAHILL Denis - Catherine McALLISTER d. Vic.

The Argus (Melbourne, Vic.) - Tue 15 Apr 1862 p.4
DEATHS
HARREX.-On the 14th inst., at her residence, Cambridge Arms Hotel, Collingwood, Mary Scholasticia, the beloved wife of Mr. George Thomas Harrex, aged thirty-eight years.

I don't know yet if that an error with Carr or Cahill or if Cahill is Mary's maiden name.

Thomas age 35.

No, it looks like Mary born Cahill and married Carr then married George as Carr.

Death and marriage both 1854 but no full date for either event yet.

Post #8 age 35 but can't prove the death is the right one or that it is before the marriage in same year.

Pity Catherine's notice didn't mention Mary.

No marriage for Denis and no birth for Mary Cahill in NSW index.
