The death notice for Catherine indicates that John is deceased. John is also not mentioned in the funeral notices of his son James in 1905. Itís not the 1883 death, which was a babe.

James: http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article174059122

Catherine: http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article20074908

So gives an up-to time frame.

Deaths occurred in Brisbane, for other looking.

When and where did they marry?

Maybe a connection, maybe not, but just today I indexed a Death Notice in Cairns Post, attached.

As earlier family has been documented in Queensland, this person (Dale Morelle, presumably female) may be part of the descendant family of this unusual surname?
At least, you could keep it 'just in case'.
