Thank you for your reply Gary.

I do have the deaths for the two Margaret's and Eliza, and the marriages for Margaret and Eliza, but I have not been able to ID them in the birth records and did not include them in my post as I did not want to give anyone the wrong information.

Could you please let me know if you have located the birth records for the two Margarets and Eliza so I can recheck the records and update my post.

Now I understand your system of verification . . . I too, am unable to find the birth cert.record on either of the 3 females - no matter what name spelling I check - I know they existed, via Marriage Cert, Death Cert & Wills . . . but I can't show they were born !

There are hundreds of births I have not been able to locate in the Australian records so don't let that worry you. The main thing is we have put the family together again and I have updated my post. Just need to find the death of John (b.1863)to complete their family record. I will go back through my research notes and put up a post for Margaret and Eliza. I'm sure someone will let me know if I make any errors.

John (b,1863) was recorded as living on his mother's Death Cert in 1900, but dead on his father Death Cert in 1908.
Margaret(b.1866) death was recorded under GILLISPIE in 1866 age 1 yr

Could not find John in the Victorian deaths for these years and will check for his death in the other states.
