Brevities.
One of the oldest residents in Blayney district, Mr. Wm. Wallace, was buried yesterday.

Don't know which is the right death.

Also I notice the shipping record says he was married.

I have no death for Sarah.

Names could be Wallis or Wallace in Australia.

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks Ellie.

That's 2x William - Newtown near Sydney and Blayney way out back. Actually, there is a 3rd but initial and location rule Inverell out

WALLIS WILLIAM A 10485/1888 JOSEPH MARY INVERELL

Wallis and Wallace interchange in different Australian records with these families from Wexford.

What I know so far for these families is that they were either living near Mulgoa/Penrith or Bathurst.

Blayney is something new.

Can't see a death for Sarah as Wallis or Wallace with parents John & Jane as per shipping record.

Either remarried after death of William whatever date that was or informant got at least one parent wrong on Sarah's death reg.

Have to search Trove for mention of Sarah.

Thanks Ellie.

You have helped by showing me there is one in Newtown as well. And by checking a site I can't access even at the library. I spent some hours there again today looking at records on A...

William's father died near Bathurst.

Blayney looks to be unlikely with so many families there I'd say they were a different mob.

If 1855 is correct then Sarah probably remarried. No marriage 1855 - 1865.

Only one baptism as Wallis

WALLIS ANNA 1904/1850 V18501904 35 WILLIAM SARAH * CofE

Oh. 3x William & Sarah Wallace families in different parts of NSW including 6 baptisms I can look up making a total of 7

The youngest

WALLACE ELIZABETH 4737/1855 V18554737 42B WILLIAM SARAH

I think we stop Ellie and wait until I have a copy of the baptisms. Find the abode and occupation of William and check if we have one family. If we don't have twins then must be more than one family.

Thanks Ellie.

Quirindi is near this place

WALLACE WILLIAM B 11442/1864 WILLIAM SARAH MURRURUNDI

Some at Bathurst and some at Maitland.

If I can't get the baptisms tomorrow I'll try Friday afternoon.

Sort the children in to the three families then follow the Bathurst ones first. I can't tell the location of the baptisms from the index entry so I have to view the film if they are not on FS.
