Patrick Smith died days before 1911 census-

Based on this death record an the 1901 census it would seem Patrick was born in about 1855, which makes sense in terms of the civil registration records

Hi Sharyn

We do not have any photos at all, though I suspect Bathurst gaol records may have one.  Those records are help at NSW SRO and Kingswood which is miles from anywhere ;)

I was surprised that Francis was not mentioned in the notes for Peters funeral, perhaps they became estranged.  Francis seems a pretty free wheeling character and it's possible he did not like the fact that Peter became a Policeman and then a Prison Warder.

Most of Peter and Catherines' children were male and I find that generally the females are the best keepers of family histories.  When I started, Caths mum had a heap of info on her ancestors but no one know anything about the Smith line

Regards
Steve
