Hi Robyn -

There is a marriage for a Harriett Arnold to a George Nicholls Hunter but thi is not her. I have been in correspondence with mebers of her famimly and we are both quite sure that this is a differentHarriett Arnold who was born in West Australia.

Cant find this Harriett Arnold you say was born in WA which was the one you said married George Hunter. Theres a death for a Harriett Hunter in 1926 in Wellington WA which is around Serptentine, could family be wrong as theres no harriett marrying a robert higgins?


Robyn has anyone actually sighted either of the certificates of Harriett's ARNOLD's marriage in 1905 and death in 1926 in Western Australia to completely eliminate this as your Harriett?

Cheers

Hi Robyn

Could this be your Harriett?

1903 electoral roll has

Harriett HIGGINS, home duties, Zulu Creek, Corryong, Division of INDI
Robert Dawson HIGGINS, Miner, same address.

Can't see her with this name anywhere else - there is another Harriett Higgins living in Colac area later but her bloke is not Robert.

Sue,
just  checked and cannot see his death in Victoria,  perhaps  he died in WA  and he was from Geelong, Victoria  might have been  there visiting?

Hi Jenn,
Yes.
More likely. I totally got that backwards ;D
No sign of Harriett in either cemetery though.
Unless you can see her in Vic.

Sue
ADDING : Further information on the above to eliminate/confirm  him as a candidate for Harriett's husband.

Hunter, Jean  Mary is at the same location as George, in the adjoining niche.

The Harriet Arnold who married George Nicholls Hunter was born in 1884. Again too young for my Harriett b 1869 . I have been in correspendece with her great granddaughter. George Nicholls Hunter was born in NSw in 1880 to George Hunter and Harriet Elizabeth Moss.

I have also looked at the fiche in the BAttye Library on two occasions and Harriet is not the one from Victoria.

Several years ago I wrote to a contact in the AGS publication and got all the details. Sadly lost in a change of house.

Can quite positively rule this couple out.

I am still no further forward with this lady. I have scoured Qld records as well as NSW.

I would have thought that being born in 1869 she woul dbe deceased by 1979 and 1985 for NW and Victorian records. Qld still finish earlier and in WA I have scoured cemeteries etc ad even goen to Perth to look in the Battye Liibrary.

Many years ago I corresponded with a decendant of Harriet Arnold who married George Hunter and I a satisfied that she is not th elady in my tree.

Electoral rolls have not hepled so fara.

Any other ideas will be appreciated
