I have found a tree which has Samuel dying in Melbourne in 1875 and Eliza dying in Brunswick, Victoria in 1893. The tree doesn't give a lot of information.

The Argus (Melbourne, Vic.) - Sat 11 Nov 1893 p.1
Deaths.

Did Frank Edwin have a brother Samuel whom you may not have found?

Cancel that - I've just read posy#8 again. Could be a cousin or just a coincidence.

Not sure so will have to do some checking. The 'Hill' bit is a problem.

That tree is correct for Eliza.

Vic. Marriage 1866
HILL Eliza
TURNER, Samuel
164/1866


I can't find a death for that Eliza - no father listed as Hill and no spouse listed as Samuel.

You have details for the Samuel Turner/Eliza Price marriage in 1848.

You have details of the death of Eliza Turner nee Price in 1893.

Therefore I wouldn't worry about the Eliza Hill who married a Samuel Turner in 1866.

It is more interesting that the newspaper entry re Eliza Turner nee Price's death states that she is the wife of Samuel rather than his widow, which implies that Samuel was still alive in 1893.

Yes, thanks.

I can't find a death in Vic. index that fits. None with mother as Leigh and those with father as Samuel have ages that don't fit. Those with unknown parents have ages that are way out.

I can't find Eliza and Mary together in 1841 and this is the only Mary I can find who might fit.

Any tree with deaths for Richard and Harriot and their marriage ??
