may be something or may be nothing.

does anyone know who this lady is that is buried with Victor Stewart HELSDON?
there doesn't appear to be a corresponding death, marriage etc  in NSW or QLD.

McROBERTS Agnes Mary Stewart  05 / 11 / 1893  Unknown 

HELSDON Victor Stewart  22 / 11 / 1919  Unknown 

Toowong Cemetery.

I can see by  the indexs that Ellen Stewart married Fredrick Lewis so  that will be the Mrs Fred Lewis referred to in Margaret Stewarts funeral notice.

Hi Jenn,

Adelzia did have a sister called Mary b 1873, possibly it is her.

Sorry I am a little slow matching BMD's, this is my first experience of Australian records :-\

further searching under the name Mary STEWART for the death in 1893 reveals:
1893/26479
Agnes Mary McRoberts Stewart
Mary Stewart
** born Queensland aged 14 months
no father listed.
Mother Mary, probably Adelizas' sister.
Off to try again.

Hi Leanne,

Many thanks for your interest :)

The person this child is buried with is Adeliza's son, Victor Stewart Helsdon b12/10/1888. He married Charlotte Leftwich in 1911, so am suprised his birth date was unknown.

So I think it is safe to say that the child buried with Victor Stewart Helsdon is the son of Adeliza's sister Mary.

With the middle name of McRoberts, a child born before marriage, and then her sister Mary marries a William McRoberts...perfect. ;D

going back to the names on the notice for Margaret STEWART,
I think we can account for Mrs M. Mathieson.
Mary McROBERTS marries Francis MATHIESON in 1902.
1902/1884
 McROBERTS Mary
MATHIESON Francis

then Mary herself is deceased by 1921,
1921/34493
Mary MATHIESON
Father John STEWART
Mother Margaret FRASER

Mary is buried with John STEWART
