Dear Stuart,

I have been tidying up loose ends with our McLEAN family and we can now definitely eliminate this marriage and the people involved. See the following certificate:

Qld-Transcription of Marriage: Alexander McLEAN & Clara Fanny Ann MILLS. 1870. Reg# 1870/197. *When and where married: 24th February 1870, Ipswich. *Names and surnames of parties: Alexander McLEAN; Clara Fanny Ann MILLS. *Condition of the parties: Bachelor; Spinster. *Birthplace: Queanbeyan N.S. Wales; Louisa Creek, Macquarrie, N.S. Wales. Married at the Wesleyan Parsonage, Ipswich. * According to the rites of the Wesleyan Church. *Rank or profession: Farmer; Private Life. *Age: 27 years; 16 years. *Usual place of residence: Fassifern; Fassifern. *Father's name and surname, Mother's name and maiden surname: Robert McLean and Sophia Milman; Henry Phillip Mills and Louisa Newbould. *Father's rank or profession: Labourer; Farmer. *This Marriage was solemnized between us: Alexander McLEAN & Clara Fanny Ann MILLS. *In the presence of us: Richard Curtis, Sarah Anne Curtis. *By (or before me): John Gardiner Officiating Minister. *

Your records will show that our Roderick should have had the following parents:

Name and Surname of Father: John McLEAN

Name and maiden surname of mother: Grace McGUINESS (McINNES/ McINNIS)

Similarly our Roderick would have been aged 19 and not 27 at the time of the above marriage, and our Roderick was b. 21 Dec 1851 Tomago NSW, NOT Queanbeyan NSW.

The death certificate I sent to you earlier suggests that our Roderick never married.

Best regards,

Phil

Note: DOB is calculated from Alexander being 27 years old at the time of his marriage to Clara in 1870.

Dear Stuart,

I have been tidying up loose ends with our McLEAN family and we can now definitely eliminate this marriage and the people involved. See the following certificate:

Qld-Transcription of Marriage: Alexander McLEAN & Clara Fanny Ann MILLS. 1870. Reg# 1870/197. *When and where married: 24th February 1870, Ipswich. *Names and surnames of parties: Alexander McLEAN; Clara Fanny Ann MILLS. *Condition of the parties: Bachelor; Spinster. *Birthplace: Queanbeyan N.S. Wales; Louisa Creek, Macquarrie, N.S. Wales. Married at the Wesleyan Parsonage, Ipswich. * According to the rites of the Wesleyan Church. *Rank or profession: Farmer; Private Life. *Age: 27 years; 16 years. *Usual place of residence: Fassifern; Fassifern. *Father's name and surname, Mother's name and maiden surname: Robert McLean and Sophia Milman; Henry Phillip Mills and Louisa Newbould. *Father's rank or profession: Labourer; Farmer. *This Marriage was solemnized between us: Alexander McLEAN & Clara Fanny Ann MILLS. *In the presence of us: Richard Curtis, Sarah Anne Curtis. *By (or before me): John Gardiner Officiating Minister. *

Your records will show that our Roderick should have had the following parents:

Name and Surname of Father: John McLEAN

Name and maiden surname of mother: Grace McGUINESS (McINNES/ McINNIS)

Similarly our Roderick would have been aged 19 and not 27 at the time of the above marriage, and our Roderick was b. 21 Dec 1851 Tomago NSW, NOT Queanbeyan NSW.

The death certificate I sent to you earlier suggests that our Roderick never married.

Best regards,

Phil
