Forgot to comment on Ellen Kennedy. We have no knowledge of her. May be the mother of James ?
Might be coincidence but one of Beresford's daughters second christian name is Ellen.

Hi all,
Have now received a copy of Marriage Certificate. James Kennedy and Jane Murray Married 10/06/1915 at residence of Mr. Charles Millis, Nanango Qld.
James Kennedy - Birthplace - Rockhamton Qld Age 23 Usual address Kingaroy Qld.
Parents -  Robert Kennedy and Mary Niven.
Jane Murray - Birthplace - Missiboddi, Bourairlle, New South Wales. Age 19. Usual address , Nanango Qld.
Parents - Francis Murray (Deceased) and Elizabeth Thompson
Witnesses - Frank Murray and Annie Alice Murray.
I can find James' record of birth on Qld BDM index but can not find Jane's birth on NSW BDM or a marriage of
Francis Murray and Elizabeth Thompson on either Qld or NSW BDM.
I have googled Missibotti an Bourairlle which came up blank. Are these fictitous place names or recorded incorreclty?
Can any one help solve this little puzzle?

Jack

well found there Merlin

there a re a number of children born in the same area to Francis and Elizabeth Murray/Murry/Murry.

There is a death that might be relevant
Francis Murray died 1903 at Bowraville NSW REG no 5343

there is also the death in Qld of Francis Murray with the parents listed as Francis Murray and Elizabeth Thompson, no doubt a brother who was perhaps the witness at Jane's Wedding.


In 1881 on  the Devon   there is an entry for Francis Murray aged 25 and Elizabeth Murray aged As they are unassisted passengers there is nothing more on them.

However I did find this marriage

on the same page

Francis Murray and Elizabeth Thompson at Wharfedale Yorkshire 1880

Thank you Merlin, you surely are the magician.
And a BIG thank you all that have assisted especially Jenn for all your previous work, you are a Gem!

I am sure I will be back seeking further assistance. I am now going to concentrate on my side of the family for a while which is South Australian based.

Kind regards

Jacko
