DEATHS
SMITH.-On the 26th February, at her residence, Thornbury-street, Spring Hill, Brisbane, Alice, relict of the late William Smith, aged 68 years.

Probably the wrong burial for William as there is no burial for Alice there.

Would be difficult with the death reg index details to find the right birth for William Smith and Alice Wilson.

Crazy. Put Smith and 1893-1898 and you only get William.

Put Alice with no year range and you get Alice.

Spring Hill is not near Toowong so I was marking my tree with that burial for William as only a possible with nothing for Alice.

Back to this one.

Qld. Death 28 Oct 1893/B26429 Smith William - James Smith - Ellen - * born England aged 63 years

Qld. Death 26 Feb 1898/B30398 Smith Alice - Wilson - * born England aged 68 years

Would probably need the help of a tree to find Alice Wilson in England.

Ok dozens of marriages for a James Smith to an Ellen 1820 - 1832 in England.
