Something is wrong somewhere :confused:
I can not find a birth for Esther with parents as Robert and Frances, yet its the right death for Esther from what I can tell.
Found a tree also and no Esther on the list of kids born to Robert and Frances Hearn.

Im going back to the beginning and starting over again.

Found the error I think. Frances was married before and Bright was her married name.

The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954)

POTTS—BRIGHT.—January 30, at the Wesleyan Church, Wollongong, by the Rev. B. J. Meek, the Rev. T. Frederick Potts to Esther Annie Lee Bright, relict of the late Mr. John Bright, of Wollongong.
