Look up, Rookwood Cemetery..
« on: Sunday 02 June 13 21:52 BST (UK) »
Hi. I am trying to find information Re: Ellen Mansfield who was buried in the Church of England section in Rookwood Cemetery on June 29 1916 and also if her husband, Ephraim Mansfield is buried in Rookwood.
I have found out that the information on BDM re: their marriage,  is incorrect as it has Ellens maiden name as being Asekeller and it appears as though that name doesn't exist anywhere. It also shows that they were married in Erskinville NSW and no one at the church can help me verify what her maiden name was as I was told there are no records at the church from the year they were married.
I recently found Ellen's funeral notice which was in the Sydney Morning Herald dated June 29 1916 and it showed her as being the wife of Mr E Mansfield but like Ellen, after 10 years of searching I cannot find any trace as his death, hence my question, is he also in Rookwood.
Can anyone help..
Graham

Hi Kimmiesdad,

George Ephraim Mansfied was born at Rylston NSW  ref # 19885/1876. The son of William and Elizabeth Mansfield. He married Under his 2nd name to Your Ellen Asekeller.

He married her under his middle name of Ephraim but his death is recorded at Concord Sydney in 1949 under his correct 1st name the ref # is 11269/1949.

I will look and see if they are buried together.

There must be 2 of the same name or he married twice ???

3420/1869    MANSFIELD    EPHRAIM .....   BARNABY    SOPHIA    RYLSTONE    
3980/1899    MANSFIELD    EPHRAIM    ......    ASEKELLER    ELLEN
----------------------------------

There was a George Ephraim Mansfield seeking restitution of conjugal rights against Sarah Teresa Mansfield (formerly Maher] in 1911

I think the other may be a possible brother to William Mansfield as his marriage is 1869 as George Ephraim Mansfield wasn't born utill 1876.

Of course it could be the same Ephraim Mansfield with two marriages as you have. I saw that earlier marriage and dismissed it ::)

Hi guys and thanks for your replies but the George Ephraim you mention is not the Ephraim I am looking for.. Ephraim was George Ephraims uncle and was born in England. He was just a lad when he arrived here with his family, George (father) and Marie(mother) formely Hurst..

It would have been better to post on the original thread and or at least answer the last post on the earlier thread.
