BROWN Thomas James Funeral notice 29MAR1918 Funeral late of Parramatta Sydney Morning Herald 29MAR1918

Death BROWN THOMAS J 7331/1918 THOMAS ELLEN - PARRAMATTA * 27 Mar

If cemetery record is correct it's the wrong one or he remarried ??

Brown Thomas J 1846? 27 Mar 1918 71 son/Thomas & Ellen; h/Margaret - Mays Hill NSW

Mays Hill = Western-road cemetery

No marriage in NSW index for a Thomas J to a Margaret.

1918 looks more likely, son Francis' marriage in 1906 has mother dec and father presumably living. Same for Charles Alfred in 1912.

Geoff

EDIT:
8757/1906 BROWN FRANCIS F/CULLEY MAGGIE SYDNEY [Some records have her as Kelly]

496/1912 BROWN CHARLES A/DICKENS LIZZIE SYDNEY

No marriage in NSW index for a Thomas J to a Margaret.
This may be worth a thought..

NSW Mariage Index:
4517/1880 BROWN THOMAS/MCFARLAND MARGARET PARRAMATTA

Would mean Sarah died by 1880.

Have rechecked the image from the 1892 marriage of Thomas William [post #8], it doesn't say Sarah is dec. :rolleyes:

NSW Births:
BROWN EMILY M 15475/1883 THOMAS/MARGARET PARRAMATTA
BROWN MABEL E 19365/1887 THOMAS J/MARGARET PARRAMATTA

Geoff

EDIT: The 2 births look right for Sarah's death 1876-1880 given Emily May in 1903 & 1913.

Thanks Rupert.

Thanks Geoff.

Not adding up.

Burial in May's Hill = Western road cemetery in 1878

BROWN FEMALE INFANT 8864/1878 WALTER PIGISMUNDA - PARRAMATTA

Can't find a birth for Sarah as Finch around 1848 in NSW or Qld. index.

The 1870 burial in Mays Hill could be Thomas senior.

BROWN THOMAS 5227/1870 AGE 61 YEARS DIED PARRAMATTA PARRAMATTA

1880 remarriage looks ok as does the 1918 death.
