Thank you Bob.

Sorry to say I have not been able to locate the death for Isabella Eliza LAIRD in the Victorian death records, but she is buried at the Calivil-Pompapiel Cemetery with other family members as indicated in my update. Headstone photos are available online for free should you be interested. If the headstones are readable they should give you death dates, or you could contact the Cemetery Trust for the dates.

Cheers.
