The death notice for Maria implies that her husband was still living at her time of death. Therefore, your Edgar isnít going to be her husband, as he would be well over 100 years old.

Maybe he came here to be with family members who were already here.

I donít think you need to post a photo. His name isnít common, so anyone searching should pick up on it.

hi Jamjar

you're right. If the death notice implies that the husband is still alive, then it can't be my Edgar Melville.
I also thought that the death notice would have said that Maria is the widow of... instead of wife of...

What a shame, it isn't him. Maybe my Nan was wrong all along about her cousin moving to Australia.
