William WILSON , 1856–1943 (aged 87 years)
Annette Gregory (Hudson) recalls that her father-in-law recounted that his grand father William was born in Glasgow. This is supported by the statement at the time of the birth of his daughter Ann, that he was born in Scotland.
The year of his birth has been by calculation in that it was stated that he was 87 years of age at the time of his death in 1943.
The death certificate for William includes the information that he had been in New South Wales for 78 years at the time of his death in 1943.
This was his occupation at the time of the birth of his daughter Ann.
This was his occupation noted at the time of his death.
Residing here at the time of his death.
I have checked the Sydney Morning Herald for the 13th to the 20th September, 1943 and I found no Death Notice relating to him. It may be in the Newcastle Morning Herald.
For William's death.
