EDIT: Martin & Edward in the 1905 E/R post #3, so possibly didn't remarry..
 
Kate is a bit of a mystery.

... Miss Kate Sedelsten, of Benalla ...

That's all I can find. A marriage and one daughter with two birth reg. No other children and no death for Kate.
 
Deaths in Vic . index 1886 - 1889 for several Cath are infants.

No Sedelsten deaths in Vic. Index 1840 - 1940.

Back to this one. This is the puzzle.

FITZGERALD, Kate; SEDELSTEN, Kate; 13882; 1918

Is the name change the result of a marriage (not yet found) or just a change of name ?

So, looking for the 1866 birth.
