I think Jane is the one born 1873 but not mentioned in mother's death notice.

or if this is the one born 1873 then mentioned in mother's death notice.

Marriage 1894/C0821 Arney Richard William - Morrison Jeanie

That would mean Jane Miller Morrison is not the one born 1873 ...

There is no birth in Qld. for a Jane Morrison.

David married Florence Alice.

1898 C2124 Florence Alice Thompson - David Morrison

Don't have his arrival or that of sister Jane/Jeannie or their mother.

1909 QLD Electoral Roll - Herbert - Townsville
MORRISON David Miller, Nelson st., fireman
MORRISON Florence Alice, Nelson st., home duties

J M M is in 1912 so born before 1891 so can't be a daughter of William junior & Florence Alice.

No hits in Trove in Qld. for a 'jane miller morrison' so I'm lost - no birth and no death ??

Thanks Geoff.

No. Only had William's arrival so far.

Jane nee Burk was either 80 or 83 in 1922.

Mary Morrison married Cragg and died in WA and no birth in Scotland or Qld. for Mary.

Age at death for Jane nee Burk must be a guess.

Age on shipping record possibly out too.

Seems we have two daughters of William senior and Jane Burk - Jane/Jeannie and Mary with no birth on FS in Scotland.

I dunno.

Need age at death for this one to see if it's the one born 1873.

Death 1966/B82228 Arney Jean William Morrison Jeannie Burt

ARNEY JEAN Unrecorded Unrecorded 92 Years 18-07-1966 Hemmant Cemetery Location LAWN-4-156

No burial for Richard William Arney there.

Ok that is sorted so who is J M M ???

We have no birth or marriage for Mary Morrison who married Robert Cragg.

Townsville Daily Bulletin (Qld.) - Wed 8 Feb 1922 p.4

MILLER-MORRISON.-On February 5th, 1922, at the residence of her daughter, Mrs Robt. Cragg, Subiaco, W. A., in her 80th year, Jane, the relict of the late William Miller-Morrison.

Given age at arrival the 1960 death would be a close fit.

Looks ok but no birth on FS for Mary. It's not as Elizabeth as that is 1871.

Nothing for J M M after 1925 Lilley.

I've tried Miller-Morrison as well in Qld. index.

Still can't see a marriage or death.

Lots of married Jane Miller ... in Qld. rolls.
