NSW Birth 19559/1895 KIRKLAND NELLIE - ROBERT - MARY R - SYDNEY

No marriage for a John Clark to a Marion Birkmyre.

1861 census for a Jane B Clark aged abt 5 ?

I can't find a Marion married to a John Clark in Lanark in 1851.

Arrival before 1890 ?

Not 'La Hogue' 1878 or 'Allanshaw' 1883.

Thanks emeltee.

I searched for a marriage of John Clark to Marion Birkmyre because of this.

NSW Death 18269/1945 KIRKLAND JANE BIRKMYRE - JOHN - MARION BIRKMYRE - MARRICKVILLE

Perhaps Marion's middle name was Birkmyre. If not then perhaps the informant thought Jane's mother was a Birkmyre because of Jane's middle name.
