I had the Berrima death in my tree that is why I queried BDM re no specific dod in the index and received the reply in post #1.

The marriage in 1832 is ok. It's the two deaths to sort.

Looks like only one Elizabeth so with Emerson as the executor the correct death would be the Gundagai one.

I had the wrong one in my tree not realising there were two who died that year.

The Bowral/Berrima one is a bit of a puzzle.

No birth in NSW index for a William Clemson with parents George & Sarah.

CLEMSON GEORGE T 9496/1881 EDWARD FLORA - PENRITH

Births
CLEMSON HORACE 11662/1861 WILLIAM H ELIZABETH - PENRITH

CLEMSON CHARLES W 12243/1863 WILLIAM MARY A - PENRITH

That must be William junior who married Mary A Purcell in 1862.

Death of William Jun.

Baptism CLEMSON WILLIAM S 1175/1841 V18411175 25A WILLIAM H ELIZABETH

No marriage in NSW index for the one who died Berrima. Births in NSW index for William senior and junior but not a third William.

William senior and Elizabeth nee Sharp had lots of children.

Can't find anything else in Trove for the one who died in Berrima.
