Hello,

NSW Birth 33179/1902 SMITH GLADYS G - WILLIAM E - HANORAH M - MANILLA

NSW Death 106962/1980 MELLEFONT GLADYS GERTRUDE - WILLIAM EDWARD - NORAH MARY

Looking for the marriage of William Edward to Hanorah/Norah Mary.

These in NSW don't seem to fit:

3584/1895 SMITH WILLIAM T - MOYLAN NORAH - NEWTOWN
1527/1898 SMITH WILLIAM P - MANNION NORAH - NEWTOWN

Thanks.

Dave

Thanks Geoff.

I missed that one. Manilla is SW of Armidale so that fits.


Couldn't find all the baptisms I wanted today. One family had three children baptised the same day but something is wrong with the details in the index. Don't know yet if the volume is wrong or the sequence number or both. :rolleyes:

A possible death:

25971/1966 SMITH WILLIAM EDWARD - WILLIAM HENERY - MARY - TAMWORTH


William Edward Smith 1958 New South Wales New England
William Edward Smith 1963 New South Wales New England


No middle name:

Norah Smith 1958 New South Wales New England

Not in New England in 1963. Can't see an obvious death.

6265/1961 SMITH NORAH UNKNOWN UNKNOWN NEWCASTLE

Any occupation for Norah in 1958 other than 'home duties' ?


William's death is not in Ryerson so no age at death and past 1954 so not in TROVE.

Ditto that 1961 death in Newcastle.

News about the death of William Smith

ELDERLY MAN'S DEATH

DOCTORS REFUSE CERTIFICATE.

Mysterious circumstances surround the death of William Edward Smith, 70, at Uralla. He was found lying dead near his home, and a post-mortem was held, but the doctors refused to give a certificate. Contents of the stomach have been sent to Sydney for analysis.

ELDERLY MAN'S DEATH. (1931, February 11). Singleton Argus (NSW : 1880 - 1954) , p. 1. Retrieved August 12, 2012, from http://nla.gov .au/nla.news-article81185619

Geoff

Edit: The link is fragmented, will look to addressing it..

This should do it!
