Looking for William Boyd Watson born circa 1873

Query by wcole

My grandfather William Boyd Watson, son of John Watson (farmer) and Mary Jane Ambrose, is buried at Dunoon Cemetery near Lismore, N.S.W. I cannot find any details of his birth. Someone posted a photo of his grave on Ancestry on 3 August 2007. Anyone who can help get this research started?

Dear wcole, Welcome.

Purchase Death Certificate of William Boyd Watson from the NSW Registry of BDMs

Cert should have more details to get you started, i.e. when/where born, etc.

Died 1951, Lismore NSW Australia.

Lismore City Council - Rural and other cemeteries. I just clicked on REGISTER SEARCH PAGE and searched for Watson William and results were Nil (?).

* Nimbin Cemetery
* Bexhill Cemetery
* Dunoon Cemetery
* Alphadale Cemetery
* Tucki Tucki Cemetery

Are you sure he was buried at Dunoon?

Marriage: I can't find marriage record in QLD or NSW for your great grandparents John WATSON and Mary Jane AMBROSE. Perhaps they were from Victoria or emigrants?
