Thanks Johnf04 - interesting to see that the verdict was an illness rather than the poisoning as supposed earlier and reported somewhat luridly in the newspaper.

Good find CoL  :)

Hi John Jud Cupo

Thank you for your help and the information you have searched and provided, I will look over the information when I get home.  I spoke with the elderly lady I am helping and she was so pleased to hear who her great grandfather and grandmother are and I have given her a copy of the news articles, which she is delighted with, she is happy :)  And I found some additional information on the family aswell on Papers past. My friend is 89 years old and the information she has provided on her family past her grandparents is sketchy. After some discussion, it is believed Mary was a bartender/barmaid in Laucheston. I really appreciate your help. I'm about to do some searching for Robert in Mary in Tasmania.


Regards

I have contacted the Tasmania Police Museum. Hopefully they can provide me with some information on Robert SNR. I am also looking at the Ireland connection.
