Age at death points to birth in NSW abt 1883 - parents John & Margaret ??

William married Catherine Ann Cady and they had 2 sons Donald George born ?? and Robert William born 1919 and two daughters.
Donald married in 1940 and Robert in 1944. I've not traced the daughters yet. They both married.

Not sure if parents on death reg as John & Margaret are correct as I can't find a marriage for them or a birth for William that seems to fit.
Either way, looking for William's parents, their marriage and their deaths.

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks Val.

Thanks Geoff.

I didn't think Donald was as old as that so assumed birth would be as Holden.

I've not checked yet how Alice Emily Stinson fits. I have the family so it could be another loop in relationships in my tree.

Most of this will have to wait until next week for internet connection to be entered into my tree. I'm at the local library now.
