MARRIAGES
WIGHTMAN - RITCHIE.-January 28, by the Rev. Dr. Fullerton, Mr. James Wightman, of Sydney, to Jessie, eldest daughter of Mr. Peter Ritchie, of Manning River.

Is that the same Peter moved from Yass to Manning River or a different one. Is Jessie the Janet b. 1851? I can't find a death for Jessie.

Looking for info on Peter and Mary Ann.

Regards,

Dave
