Camperdown Chronicle (Vic.) - Tue 8 Jan 1918 p.4
LISMORE
The death occurred at the Lismore hotel on Friday last of Miss Reid, an aunt of the licensee, Mrs Haines. The deceased was ailing when she arrived at Lismore, and succumbed to an internal growth. The interment was made in the Cape Clear cemetery on Saturday.

Looking for the death reg, thanks.
 
No death in Vic. index in 1918 for a REID or REED with place of death = Lismore.

Mary Kerr is the "Mrs Haines"

Vic. Birth 24183/1866 KERR Mary - Joseph - Nancy REED - b. Springdallah, Vic.

Vic. Death 1880 KERR Nancy 34 - REID James - Mary McCRAE - d. Vic. #3560

An aunt of Mary, so a sister of Nancy/Nanny.

No death in index for a female Reid or Reed with those parents. ??

Ok im really confused :oops: Lismore is NSW and google tells me that Cape Clear cemetery is in VIC. She died on Friday and buried Sat so how would they have gotten her back to VIC and buried within a day :confused: Have i missed something?
 
There is a Lismore in Vic. as well.

Lismore is a town in Victoria, Australia, located on the Hamilton Highway 170 kilometres west of Melbourne. It is part of the Corangamite Shire local government area. At the 2016 census, Lismore had a population of 420.
 
Lismore is used as a place of death in the index.

Vic. Death 7711/1919 HAINES Mary 48 - KERR Josh - Nanny REID - d. Lismore, Vic.
 
Thanks gibbo.

I'm stuck too. Don't know how old she would be and if you look at the ones with no parents there are none left who died in Lismore.

Only two burials in that cemetery in 1918 and neither fit.

Nancy/Nanny born abt 1846 - parents if correct on death reg - James Reid/Reed & Mary McCRAE

So, a birth for her and for any sisters. ?

Births not in Vic. or NSW or England. Or Scotland.

So, probably Ireland.

Yes.

Possibly nowhere as I'm stuck.

Finlayson has not helped.

One death has father as John but I think that is an error. Death in Vic. for James Reid who married Mary McCrea/McRea.
