Robert Henry WHITEMAN (abt 1839 Somersetshire - 1884 New South Wales, Australia)
Robert Henry Whiteman died of pneumonia in February 1884 at Parkes in New South Wales, Australia. He left behind a young widow and one child with another child yet to be born. Robert had married Sarah Jane Way in 1882 at Parkes. He was a miner.
The marriage certificate does not give details of his parents. Similarly details of his parents were not known at the time of his death (informants were from his wife's family). His death certificate states he had been born in Somersetshire, was aged 45 (born about 1839) and had emigrated to Australia at the age of 5 - ie about 1844.
I would be delighted to share information with any other researchers.
