Hello,

Births Mar 1852
Gordon Susanna Maria Kensington 1a 5

The Sydney Morning Herald - Friday 19 December 1873 p.8
MARRIAGES
BARNES-GORDON.-November 28, at St. Mary's Church, Balmain, by the Rev. H. A. Langley, assisted by the Rev. J. N. Manning, Edward Prior, youngest son of the late Mr. John Barnes of Murrumburrah, to Susie Maria, daughter of the late Mr. John Gordon, of London.

Birth of youngest 11657/1897 BARNES FLORENCE E - EDWARD P - SUSANNAH M - COOTAMUNDRA


Possible 2nd marriage 4905/1902 MILLER JOHN J - BARNES SUSANNAH M - RICHMOND

Richmond is a long way from Cootamundra and this death probably fits the marriage:

18256/1951 MILLER SUSANNAH MARY - WILLIAM - ELIZA - PARRAMATTA

Looking for a death for Susannah after 1897. Parents John & Maria.

Regards,

Dave

Thanks Julie.

That's Parramatta.

I can't find a birth in NSW for Susannah to rule that one out for sure.

Ok the age at death does rule that one out:

MILLER Susannah Mary Death notice 13JUL1951 Death 91 at Fairfield West Sydney Morning Herald 16JUL1951

I can't find a death notice in the newspapers for Edward. I also can't find a burial but probably at Christ Church Cootamundra or Cootamundra General Cemetery, but nothing on-line.

No other death in Ryerson that fits.

This i found is very interesting indeed.

In 1902 Susanna Barnes married John James Miller, whom she had known for 29 years. He was the brother-in-law of two of Susanna's daughters. Nellie and Hilda.
JJ Miller and his wife. Susanna. sailed for Canada c1903, settling in Vancover.
Six of Susanna's seven daughters (two of them with their husbands, Alexander Archibald and William Miller and families) joined the family in Canada, as did Compton South Miller(although Compton returned after 12 months in Canada).

Possible death for John James Miller born abt 1861/Age 89 -24 Dec 1950 - Vancouver

After seeing 3 Barnes and Miller marriages thought it was going to be the Aussie version of 7 brides for 7 brothers :2fun:

Not quite, Julie. Several cases of three but no more in my tree. :biggrin:


I have a 7th son named Septimus but not a 7th son of a 7th son.
