Another question lnr   ;D

If this is the Thomas McLACHLAN born 1862, and if he's the son of the John McLACHLAN died 1925 for whom you have the death record, does that death record show that the son Thomas is living ??
[Thomas won't be named on death record, but his age will be on record if he was alive in 1925.]

The following Thomas McLACHLAN - born about 1863, can be ruled out.

[Thomas McLACHLAN - died 9 January 1889 - aged 26 years (bc 1863).  Farmer of Maungatua, West Taieri, Otago.   (Will) - left all his estate to his father James McLACHLAN.   Son of James and Mary McLACHLAN.  ]

Cheers lnr
... yes, just when you can view the death certificate, please let us know if Thomas (1862) was around in 1925.

 Hi Thanks for all your work Elizabeth had quite a time of it according to the Police Gazettes I have found a marriage 1915 for an Elizabeth SMITH to a Sydney STEVENS

Hi lnr

Why have you added this 1915 Elizabeth SMITH / Sydney STEVENS marriage to the mix without checking further who they were ???
 
[ This couple went on to have children in 1916 and later.   They lived in Christchurch then worked in  Wellington up until at least 1950. ]
 
  Q  :    Does that mean that you're discounting  the Elizabeth Miller STEVENS aged 77, who died at Wanganui, 1932???

If you look earlier in thread, you'll see the link given by McKha re: "Ellizabeth Miller SCOTT alias SMITH.     The year of that article is 1900.    She says .... that she's 45 years of age (so born circa 1855) ... that she married her 2nd husband about 2 years ago (circa 1898)  ... and when she called at shop asking for a job, gave her name as Mrs STEVENSON.

When the article was posted here and I saw the surname STEVENSON, I was able to link it to some earlier info I'd found re: death at Wanganui of an "Elizabeth Miller STEVENS" who was roughly the same age as and residing in the same area as, Elizabeth Miller SCOTT alias SMITH.

Would just like to know why you've added the 1915 marriage here ???

Hi lnr

It was clarified earlier on here that the 2nd husband mentioned by Elizabeth Miller SCOTT alias SMITH, in 1900, was most likely to have been "a common-law / de facto husband".    At that time she did not give the name of this "husband", all that was reported in the article was that she had told a shopkeeper that her name was Mrs. STEVENSON.   ("STEVENSON"  and  "STEVENS" sound very similar so perhaps there was an error in the article.??? )

What I'm trying to convey to you is that this Elizabeth Miller SCOTT (alias SMITH) is very possibly the same woman found on electoral rolls in and near Wanganui / using at times the surnames SCOTT and STEVENS.   And very probably she is the dead woman at Wanganui in 1932.
On one electoral roll, living at or near Wanganui, this Elizabeth Miller STEVENS is at same address as a gardener named George STEVENS.   That does not mean that she was married to him.   Marriage indexes were checked before posting info on here.
