I would be purchasing two marriage certificates to compare signatures.

Brilliant find CupofLife.

So now we have a possible indicator that Russell and Margaret were in Wilcannia in 1888.  The obit for their daughter Bertha (Mother M Elizabeth) gives her birthplace as Wilcannia abt 1886.  As well as that there's the use of the forename Herbert for this deceased child (presumably a child) which is a possible link to "Russell MIDLANE"s former identity.  None of the surnames or forenames are particularly common which, at least, makes the theory plausible.

Cando, I'd buy the certificates myself but one in SA and one in NSW and all you get is a transcription which is nowhere near as helpful.  I meant to thank you for the link to the obit as well .

FamilySearch has a record for the 1891 NSW Census which has R MIDLANE, householder at Bena, 1 male and 4 females in 'the schedule'. 

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-896K-NS7L?i=217&cc=2317858

1901 NSW census shows Russell MIDLANE at Bena, 1 male 3 females

But we still don't know if it's the same man as Herbert Russell Midlane COOMBE

Judith a copy of the marriage certificate from the SA Registry would include his signature.  SAGenealogy hold films of the district registers but will only transcribe. Certificates are expensive in SA.

Isn't it possible to get a photocopy of the original marriage certificate in NSW?

Just my two bob's worth :P

Thanks Cando.  Will see if I can find the church registers somehow. 

I don't mean to hijack this thread but it's got me intrigued!

That entry in the index under Herbert Midlane might be worth a look. Maybe its been put in with information in the wrong fields. Its not the first entry that I have seen, that has the wrong thing.
