I've tried John, Janet, Isabella, Alexander and Catherine and I can't find the family in Scotland or England or Wales in 1851.

I can't find the marriage or a birth/baptism for Isabella or George or Alexander.

No births found in Monmouthshire for John or Catherine.

The shipping image clearly has Monmouth.

Marnoch


I still can't find a birth/bap for Isabella using Is* Sand*.

No birth/baptism for Isabella in Banffshire.

THE LATE MRS. I. MANEWELL.
The late Mrs. Isabella Manewell, who
passed away recently, was the eldest daugh-
ter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Sandeeson,
and was born in Scotland on the last day
of the year 1841. A year later she was
taken to Wales by her parents, and at the
age of 15 came to Australia, landing in
Sydney on her fifteenth birthday. ...
It looks like Marney Banffshire but listed on SP. No place like it.

I can't find a baptism in Scotland abt 1821 for a Janet Skinner with mother Isabella.
