The Brisbane Courier (Qld.) - Mon 10 Apr 1916 p.6
HALL.-In fond remembrance of our dear mother, Agnes Hall, who passed away April 10th, 1915.
Inserted by her loving daughter and son-in-law, Agnes and Donald Hamilton.
Thanks Val.

I had my doubts because the death reg has a 'C' for Country and not a 'B' for Brisbane.

So another death for a William.

Although it's odd David Hall's reg has a 'C'.
David James Hall married Ann Agnes Nancy French – 13 June 1852 Portglenore Ant. Ireland

Thanks Val.

I have another Hall family in my tree in Qld. from Ireland so I'd better check for a connection.

Then they each show a different person for the deposit and they show different pob and parents living in different places.

NSW Archives says 22 March. Can't take more than a year on the voyage - average is 90 days.
well Elizabeth Hall is fine - just which William married her - possibly rules out the William death in 1893 - wrong parents...
