"Hi Stuart, I'm pretty confident you have Jane Laurie hooked up to the wrong Robert Laurie. Jane's obit (Dungog Chronicle on Trove) says Robert is still alive in 1939.

I think the right Robert Laurie is the son of Joseph B Laurie and Sarah Sargent, b 8 Apr 1859 in Cobark, NSW, d 4 Feb 1941 in Armidale.

(I'm filling out the Laurie history as a favour for a distant relative/genealogist).

Cheers! Mark Rogers, Canberra"
