William Durward married Jane E Smith, 1885, Arbuthnott.

The death of an Alice Jane Lewis in 1977, NSW, lists her parents as William & Jane.

This has cast a bit of doubt on whether it is the correct Alice Jane.

Who is Geoffrey Lewis buried in the same plot?

hi,.....
yes! Alice Jane's parents were certainly "William & Jane",
 And she married in Canada ,...widowed in 1925, Canada....the guy she married was Richard Ryder lewis ,
I have no clue who Geoffrey Lewis .....unless he was her son , (although i had'nt come across any children for Alice & Richard ). ???

Richard was born in Montgomeryshire, Wales, 1862. He was 57 when they married. Cannot find any Welsh relatives named Geoffrey but he had other siblings who could have moved to Oz
