Don't know who Henry Owen married or where or when.

I can't find anything to verify the Lancashire details.

I also can't find a tree.
 
If William is the 2nd son then is this the death of his brother?

if so we then have Grace.

Thanks Geoff.

Second or third time round and we probably don't have enough info to be sure.

Methodist 2 0000426 JONES JOHN 13 Dec 1916

That Methodist burial would fit with William's Wesleyan marriage.

No age at death for John unless a more complete burial record exists.


I might not have the right burial for Henry, although Goulburn fits.

May have answered me own question...

NSW Arrival Index
JONES Henry 36 John Fielden 1853 Moreton Bay and family Reels 2136, 2465

That would fit with an 1854 death aged 37..
 
Have not found the 1876 one yet.

This would look like her birth, age at death 3y would discount her..

I have found a tree but it has this death for William which is clearly wrong from the details on the headstone.

3668/1869 JONES WILLIAM AGE ABOUT 30 YEARS DIED GOULBURN GOULBURN

Father Henry Owen listed with no birth, marriage or death. No mother listed. No brother John listed. Only one of three children listed.
