Would appreciate an age on this one, hoping for the mid 1800s.
The height of the gent would determine which husband of Harriets this is, might be fun to have a guess.
We would also appreciate if there is any way to spruce up the photo some
Many thanks

Other family researchers have pointed in that direction, but I personally have found no proof.

For some reason, I missed your August message.
Yes, I've found some very interesting bits and pieces for the Delasalle bunch.
My great gran, Harriet, was daughter to James (and Sophia,) son of John and Mary.
Trouble is, there are way too many Thomas's...LOL.
If I can help in anyway, please let me know.

Cando...thanks one more time!
I do have a photo of tombstone for Catherine Francis, but this one is much clearer.
Searched the website provided for many others of my tree, and found some treasures.
Several of the records for children of Richard Crowe and Catherine gave her maiden name as Francis...yeah!
Your help is much appreciated.

Just a follow up..
from Trove

The Burrowa News (NSW : 1874 - 1951) Friday 18 September 1931 p 1 Article
The death occurred last week of
a well-known district resident, in the
person of Mr. Michael Francis, of
Marengo, aged 70, after an illness of five weeks duration. Death took
place at the residence of Mrs. Harry James, in William Street, Young, a sister of the deceased. The late Mr. Francis was a native of County Clare, Ireland. He came to Australia at the age of six, and has lived at Marengo for 58 years. His wife and only son predeceased him. Mrs. K. Crowe, of Bexley, is another sister. The funeral took place to the Marengo  cemetery.

**Note 58 years would indicate that family moved to the area after Peter died in 1873.

Mrs Harry James was previously Elizabeth Francis, and Mrs. K. Crowe was previously C/Katherine Francis, her sister.

I am sure that the records Cando found for us are the one and same and will not further pursue a birthdate for her.

Hi Cando

Many thanks for searching on my behalf.

I had found the births for the children of Catherine and Richard and the marriage and death for Catherine and Richard but you have provided me with other "goodies" I did not have. 
The death notice indicates an age of  74 in 1943, so born in ~ 1869.  This is where I am not sure I have found the right person.  Perhaps she was not sure of her birth date, or wanted to appear younger for whatever reason. :(

My grandmother, Elizabeth Francis, was born in 1869 recorded at Strathalbyn. (She was not a twin) Her sister, Margaret, born and died 1871 was also recorded at Strathalbyn.

I am thinking that perhaps her death certificate would provide names of her parents, rather than the marriage certificate.

Once again, I appreciate your kind efforts on our behalf.
Valerie :)

Peter and Catherine (snr) Francis arrived in Adelaide in 1866,  along with Michael their only surviving child, having lost two babes on the voyage to whooping cough.
I can find two births following their arrival, Elizabeth 1869 and Margaret 1871.
However, on the death certificate of Catherine Sr., (1898) there is mention of a daughter Katherine, age 31 (thus born ~ 1867) along with the other children.
Peter died in SA in 1873, so I'm thinking C/K must have been born there also.
After his death, Catherine (snr) moved with her children to Young, NSW.

Any suggestions as to where one would look further to find this birth?
Is it possible it did not get registered because it was so close to their arrival in Australia, or?

All comments welcome, and thanks for reading.

Just to add my TWITTY notes:

Thomas Harley Twitty married Sarah Browning 9 April 1804 St Mary, Wilton by Salisbury, Wiltshire.

Thomas H. and Sarah had a son, Thomas Harley Twitty, born 18 April, 1807 and died 6 January 1808 in Salisbury.
They also had a son Henry Twitty, born 30 July 1809, Salisbury and died 24 Dec 1887, Poole, Dorset.
Sometime between around 1809/1810, Thomas Harley Twitty, Snr, died ( I cannot locate a record of this) and Sarah remarried to Thomas Adams Bayley on 30 Sep 1810, St. Martin, Salisbury.

He was christened Henry TWITTY (father's last name) but after Thomas Bayley and Sarah married in 1810, he was called Bayley on all subsequent census.  He is also mentioned on Christian Adams Bayley Will. (mother of Thomas A. Bayley
"And in case both my said grandsons shall die under the age of twenty one years and without leaving any child or children there upon trust to convey pay and assure any said estate and effects unto Henry Twitty, son in law (meant step-son in those days) of my late son, his executors, administrators and assigns, etc" written in 1832

His marriage, however, is recorded as TWITTY.
Henry Twitty married Susanna Pitman 24 Sept 1832 at St. James, Poole, Dorset.

Sarah and Thomas A. Bayley went on to have 3 more children, one of whom is my 2x great grandfather.

She was born about 1785 in Salisbury, and died Dec 1821 in Poole, Dorset very close to the birth and death of her third child, daughter Sarah.

Hoping this is of some assistance in your search,
