What does it Actually say on her death cert?
Do you have Georgeís death cert?
Were there other children born in Australia? Is there a useful birth cert for one of them?

Her death cert states she died of Cerebral Thrombosis, my grandfather George (jnr) was born on 26 May 1887, Oatlands, Tasmania.

There are 8 children born to George and Ellen in Tasmania, William Jmaes was 2 years old when they left England.


Monday 10 July 1939

DEATHS:

HARDING - On July 9, 1939, at the residence of her son-in-law, Mr W. F. O'Connor, 27 Keane-Street, Launceston, Ellen Elizabeth, widow of the late George James Harding, aged 90 years. Born Ramsgate, England. Private interment Carr Villa Cemetery, Tuesday morning.
C. T. Finney, 16 Brisbane Street.

So what does George juniors birth cert say re his parents?

I can only see one Ellen Paxton marriage on FreeBMD . Lichfield reg, 1870. NOT Middlesex. Something is wrong with the page number and itís not letting me see other names  :(

Apparently that groom is Charles GILBERT. 

So no 1870 marriage.

Wow......that is the family,  thank you so much....

Ellen would have been around 21 years of age when William James was born.

So it may be safe to say, Reuben and George are one and the same...but why change his name and ship to Tasmania?

All I need to do now is to find parents for Reuben Mark Reeves, I do know he had 2 sisters Phoebe and Sarah, have no idea where any of them were born.

Will keep searching ......thank you wivenhoe, your help is very much appreciate.

Regards

Cienna.
