Elizabeth BLAKE nee HARRIS - can't find her death
« on: Wednesday 06 June 18 02:30 BST (UK) »
Hi - Elizabeth HARRIS married Andrew James BLAKE in 1877 in the Wentworth district, NSW. The couple had six children, all born in the Wentworth district.  The youngest, Bertram, was born in 1890 but died in 1891, again, in Wentworth.

Andrew and the kids then turn up in the 1890's in Norseman, WA. They lived there and in Ravensthorpe.

However, there is nothing to indicate that Elizabeth moved there with them so I suspect she died in NSW. There are 3 possible deaths between 1890 and 1900:
BLAKE  ELIZA             No  13736/1890 daughter of  JOSEPH  and LAVINIA    at  WENTWORTH

 BLAKE  ELIZABETH A  No 7324/1898   daughter of GEORGE A  and    SARAH A    at  TUMBARUMBA

 BLAKE  ELIZABETH     No 13059/1898     Parents Unknown               at          BEGA

I suspect the first one at Wentworth is the correct one, but can't find any death notices on Trove, and I am reluctant to invest in a certificate!! I don't have any subscriptions to the paid websites - is there anyone who can help me to confirm or rule out the three above deaths please? Or point me in another direction?

Thank you!
