Hi Dave :)
Just to confuse you...there's a tree in Anc which has Ruth marrying a James Hill bn Tasmania 1843.
James had a sister Harriett and a brother Bennett. Parents listed born England died in Tassie.
Alice Amelia died aged 23 yrs Launceston in 1889.
Ruth Hill died Tasmania aged 32yrs 1876.
Harriett Ada 18 married Nathaniel Ablitt Clark 1886 Launceston.
James Bennett married Maria Maher 1894 in Launceston.

Thanks Ozn. :)

It's possible because I certainly can't find them in Queensland.

I can complicate this too. :biggrin: A sister:

Marriage 14 July 1880/C0655 Hill Henry James - Bale Rachel Elizabeth

Children
1882/B29539 Hill Herbert John - Henry James - Rachel Elizabeth Bale
1884/C05067 Hill Vena Hannah - Henry James - Rachel Elizabeth Bale
1888/C07076 Hill Alice Mabel - Henry - Rachel Elizabeth Bale

Death 1948/C02410 Hill Rachel Elizabeth - John Lloyd Bale - Hannah Lloyd

I can't find a death for Henry. I even wondered if it was the same Henry. :rolleyes:

No mention of Henry:

The Courier-Mail (Brisbane, Qld. : 1933-1954) - Tuesday 11 May 1948 p.6
DEATHS
HILL Rachel Elizabeth.-8th May, Guy St. Warwick, late Auchenflower, beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother of Mr. and Mrs. H. G. Hill, Mrs. V. Crone, Mr. and Mrs. L. Crone & Family, Mr. and Mrs. H. Crone, aged 91 years 8 months. At rest.

Regards,

Dave

I have found the following on the Tasmanian BMD fiche:

Joseph HILL 30 & LLOYD Eliza 24 at Launceston 15 Feb 1842 RGD 37 #1357

Harriet Ada HILL 18 & CLARK Nathaniel Ablett 21 at Launceston 22 Dec 1886 RGD 37 #717

James HILL died 3 Dec 1879 aged 70 at Launceston RGD 35 #712

Alice Amelia HILL died 10 Jun 1889 aged 23 at Launceston RGD 35 #252

Cannot find a birth for James HILL or a death for Ruth HILL.

No birth reg for James I can understand but if Ruth died in 1876 then it should be on the fiche.

One set of fiche cover BMD 1803-1889 and another set covers marriages 1900-1909 so there is a gap in the coverage of marriages on fiche.

I am lost. :rolleyes:

The James who died in 1879 was not the one born abt 1843 to parents Joseph and Eliza. Fiche clearly had age as 70. Estimate of age can't be that far out.

Is it the same James / aka Henry HILL who married the BALE sisters?

I'm thinking the James/Henry born 1843 died after 1887.

Joseph bn 1811 England died aged 82yrs in Launceston 1898.
Could find no fiche to check that one.


I would like to find proof Ruth died in Tasmania in 1876. I'm now wondering if I should check all with given name Ruth on fiche for 1876. Perhaps she remarried.

Thanks gibbo. :)

I might be wrong but I still think it's the same HILL who married the sisters.

If not then we have nothing at all apart from the marriage for the one who married Rachel.

Dave this could be a possible error or if not it could get real interesting:rolleyes: Apparently Henry was born in Tassie which might explain why the family went back there. ALSO notice Ruth and Henry's mother's both have the same maiden name:eek: I wonder if there is something to that:rolleyes:

Yes, Ruth's death. I will check all named Ruth for that year on Monday.

I didn't find the 1843 birth for Henry to confirm what is in that tree.


Rachel is probably buried in Warwick.

Is it just coincidence Ruth and Rachel married a HILL. Or too much to have Henry return to Queensland after Ruth died to marry Rachel?

Rachel was 24 in 1880.

Birth 1856/B0190 Bale Rachael Elizabeth - John - Hannah Lloyd
3781/1856 BALE RACHAEL E - JOHN - HANNAH - BRISBANE MORETON BAY

Children
1882/B29539 Hill Herbert John - Henry James - Rachel Elizabeth Bale
1884/C05067 Hill Vena Hannah - Henry James - Rachel Elizabeth Bale
1888/C07076 Hill Alice Mabel - Henry - Rachel Elizabeth Bale

That points to a death for Henry.


That tree has no death for the Henry who married Ruth.
