Citation details: 786, 985, 1070 and 1071
Note: With the NSW Marriage Index entry showing Emily married John T Mathers and the fact that James was 71 years old at the time, raises doubts as to the validity of the numerous reverences to this marriage in the Pre 1860 Pioneer Register and the reference in the Australian Cemeteries Index web site. If anyone has the certificate of the marriage referenced, I would be pleased to receive a copy. Or can anyone provide other supporting evidence? Did she really marry James or did she marry John?
