Vic. Death 1892 GODDEN Wm 59 - Jas - Ann LANNAN - d. Violet Town, Vic. #8493 * an error for Lanham

Vic. Death 1915 GODDEN Jas 92 - Jas - Mary LANHAM - d. Woodend, Vic. #7249

Two marriages for James senior or they are brothers and it's an error with mother as Mary.

I can't find a baptism for the James who died in 1915.
