Margaret Russell / Williamson
« on: Sunday 06 September 20 21:18 BST (UK) »
Have found a marriage record for Margaret Williamson to George Russell Launceston Tasmania on the 21st September 1890. Margaret is a widow.
She was mentioned in a will of a Waller relative in 1900 so I was curious to see whose daughter she was.
So going backwards found a marriage record for Margaret Ellen Dowd to John Williamson on 18th April 1883 Hobart.
Trying to work out if they are the same person. Dowd's are related to Wallers.
I am hoping that she was born in County Cavan Ireland.
Can anyone help. Thank you

ADD:
A tree on Ancestry suggests that this is the Rebecca and William Waller that arrived on the Caroline Middleton 29 Sep 1854 as per your other thread

Dowd's are related to Wallers.

These link to the 1893 birth of May Elizabeth Dowd, parents George Dowd and Margaret Roseman, that wasn't registered until 1968.
https://stors.tas.gov.au/RGD33-1-75P62J2K
https://stors.tas.gov.au/RGD33-1-75P63J2K

Possibly the same couple, another birth. Married C. Cavan 1883

First of all many thanks for all the information. Very much appreciated.
I have been looking at the Williamson will and am having trouble reading the word before William Wallers name.
Could you tell me what you think it says. Thank you
