Also, I have been told that Finlay and Catherine were buried in a roadside grave, possibly the reason why I cannot find mention of their burial anywhere. Further, I can't find a newspaper article that mentions either their death or their burial.

.... I do know the supposed death dates for Finlay and Catherine, and that is the 29th of Nov 1866 and the 19th of November 1868. ...

...
NB NSW BDM death certificates include details of burial (or cremation) and have done so since civil registration commenced in 1856.  I would expect a roadside burial to be noted on the dc.  BUT ... if there was a coroner's enquiry, in the second half of the 19th C it is possible that the burial order was not followed up with a formal registration of the death, particularly if in rural NSW where due to sparse population, it may be several years between inquests and not everyone remembered the formal paperwork processes.   

Hi,

Using the “Date of Event” option at NSW BDM online index, I can find that index has the following for 17 – 18 -19 November 1868.

Registered Scone district:
Female MCDONALD (and as Macdonald), parents as William and Ann #6518   

Registered Maitland district
Catherine MCDONALD, (and as Macdonald) father as John, died Maitland  #4874

Registered Sydney district
Catherine McDONALD, (and as Macdonald) parents as James and Bedelia  #464

Using same option re dates  (Nov 1866 etc)
Finley MCDONALD (and as Macdonald), aged 70 years, died Scone, registered Scone #6568.

I would expect that these official records (or official transcriptions of them) would include details of their burials.

Yes I have this one on my list Muss  :)  Hopefully this one will contain Finlay's death cert and burial details  :)

And thanks for the info that Jane McDonald died 1897 also probably has a probate file.  :)  I will photograph this too.

Ros
adding : there is a probate file for a Catherine McDONALD who died the same year as our lady but it is the wrong date and the wrong lady.

I found some deaths of Farquhar McDonald which didn't seem to match.   Just tried Fear* without success too.

Ros,

Did you try searching 'Fer' as the gaelic pronunciation is actually Feracher.


Yes Annie I tried Fer* and Far* in the NSW BDM.  I haven't checked other states.

I didn't know that was the Gaelic pronunciation - that's interesting.

A NSW baptism for a child born in NSW for Finley and Catherine ...  :D

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XTCJ-1BX

Francis, born 13 July 1844 to Finley and Catherine MCDONALD,  baptised 22 September 1844, at Scone.

NSW BDM online INDEX has this as  Volume 28, line 2821.   I am sure Volume 28 is Church of England.    It is likely that the ceremony was initially registered in St Luke's parish registers.   :)
