You have me beat on this one Dave. And I hate being beat. I have tried Margaret with no surname and parents George and Mary born Durham but can't find any likely mistranscriptions with brothers as you say.

More clues please!

Hello Barbara,

Thanks for looking.

Margaret is in my tree because she ended up in Australia. This is another for the Migration board. Looks as though the whole family may have left before 1851. Margaret married in 1867 in NSW.

You'll get a kick out of Absalom whoever. :2fun:

Regards,

Dave

Possible death in NSW for Mary with father matches Robert in marriage:

2959/1863 WILESMITH MARY - ROBERT G DIED BERRIMA - BERRIMA

Can't see a death for George with father = John

Death of son John:

18763/1923 WILESMITH JOHN H G - GEORGE - MARY - KEMPSEY

Can't see a death for son Robert.
