NSW Marriage 1117/1856 GALBRAITH THOMAS PALMER - SHEPPARD ELLEN - BERRIMA * 7 Aug

I can't find a baptism for Ellen in NSW earlier enough to fit for 1856 marriage to be a sister of Sarah Ann. Anyway, the initial is not F. for Mr Galbraith.


NSW Death GALBRAITH FREDERICK H 20258/1935 THOMAS P - ELLEN - MOSS VALE

I can't find a birth for a Sarah to be a sister of that Frederick Galbraith.

I can't find a notice in Trove for the 1874 marriage. It might be on film at the State Library if it is Holy Trinity CofE Berrima.
 
Oh.

NSW Death GALBRAITH ELLEN 10519/1903 JAMES - MARGRETTA - LIVERPOOL

Same parents as Sarah so a sister but no bap for Ellen in NSW index.

Both obituaries are correct then except for the initial F.

So it must be an error with initial F. Or the writer was thinking of the son Frederick.
