Note: Heather advises: "For your information headstone for Archibald Beattie says he died 27 August 1877, but actual death certificate states he died 28 August 1873. Also headstone for Margaret Beattie nee McCorquindale says 27 April 1882 but death certificate actually states 27 April 1878. I don't know why the discrepancy between headstone and certificates."

Publication: Maitland Mercury and Hunter River General Advertiser (NSW : 1843 - 1893), Saturday 11 May 1878, page 14
Note: There is different data as to the DOD of Margaret. Her death was registered in 1878. Heather informs me that her DOD on her death certificate is 27 April 1878. Her obituary supports this date. Her headstone is inscribed with 1882 but there are no deaths for a Margaret Beattie registered in NSW in 1882.
