Obviously you already have Jane(t)'s marriage on the Vic index:

Jane Edmeston DUNN m David Chisholm  CAMERON
1892 Victoria reg no 5140

Unfortunately the index does not give the actual place of marriage.

Here is her death index information:

Janet Edmiston CAMERON, 48
Died Hotham, Victoria
Father: Jephthah DUNN
Mother: Margt HAMILTON
1899 Reg no: 2077

I actually got it from her husbands death Cert. working out dates by what was written in it.

Another chatter then helped me out.

Her name and married name showed up on a memorial stone where her husband was burried.

Purely by chance l came across it.

But you have located the parents and reg. number for me also with her age l can work out her possible date of birth - thanks for that.

Or is there a chance you could find her year of birth for me.

 ;D ;D ;D

Jamison,

there is a record of Probate for Jephthah - a wood merchant of Glenpark, Mangalore, died 7 Aug 1890.

 Unfortunately the will itself is not digitised but his wife Margaret is mentioned and what looks to be a brother of your Jane - William Hamilton DUNN, wood merchant also, of Melrose St, North Melbourne.  He left the tidy sum of 2800 pounds.

And a bit more-

There are digitised wills for Donald and Janet on PROV site also.  Janet's gives a good list of her siblings.
