Josephine Ruane Death
« on: Thursday 25 January 18 21:14 GMT (UK) »
Morning,

I have been asked to find a friend's grandmothers death that has puzzled the family for decades.

What do I know about her?

Her name was Josephine RUANE and she was born was born in 1883 to MATHEW and MARIA in LISMORE   (NSW BDM Cert 29583/1883 )

She got married in 1906 to John G GIESE  in CASINO (NSW BDM Cert. 6910/1906 )

Josephine and John had multiple children..........and then she disappears......well at least from NSW records.

I can't locate a remarriage, a death or a cemetery record, and Ancestry is not very forthcoming either!

Not sure if she travelled over the border and is hidden in the QLD or other records........but I would love to get a death date and hopefully cemetery location for Josephine.

Cheers

Siouxsie x

Wow.........Debra, you are a superstar. Many thanks.

And Ros.......many thanks, and ditto to Matt.

Now the question is..........when did she marry Alfred Howard........not listed as Howard in NSW or QLD.

This is a woman who went to great lengths to disappear from her family........it will be interesting to unearth her secrets.

His is not a very unusual name, but do we think this is the same chap under a magistrate's order?
