Mary Robertson age 91 died Yarram – Patrick Smith & Brady unknown – 1937

a tree suggests;
Mary Smith b 24 Feb 1845 London – Patrick Smith & Ann Brady (details unknown) married 2 Oct 1869 John Robertson (1831-1920)

Possible for Mary – Weekly Times Sat 30 Jan 1937
Another old Yarram resident Mrs John Robinson who went to the district in 1846 also died last week, Mrs Robinson had been blind for 20 years.

Pos for John
The Argus – Thu 19 Aug 1920
YARRAM – The death occurred at Port Albert of Mr John Robertson sen., one of the last known residents of the locality. He was born at Orkney Islands 80 years ago and arrived at Port Albert 52 years ago. He was at Eureka Stockade.

Thanks Val.

That looks right for John and Mrs John.

I did search Trove for combinations of Mary and Robertson and Yarram and Port Albert but not using Mrs John.

The State Library has fiche for marriages in Vic. and if you look up both names you can sometimes get pob.

Possible brother with mmn Brady born RD Stepney who appears to have died young.

I looked in Vic. before I looked for a death in England.

Looking for siblings to help find the family in 1851 census.

If Mary was born 1845 and in Vic. in 1846 then ... her parents should be in Vic. index.

Don't know if the 1846 bit is correct.

Thanks Geoff.

That 1851 census looks to be ruled out by mmn. Well, not finding it as Brady.

Too many deaths in the Vic. index.
