TRACY/TREACY in Melbourne, Australia, 1870s
My great great grandmother was buried in 1913 in the Melbourne General Cemetery which was already occupied by the remains of Richard M Tracey (buried 25 April 1874) and Mrs Ellen M Treacy (buried 23 April 1874). Richard died tragically on 22 April, and Ellen,his mother, died the day before.
As they were buried on the 23rd and 25th April 1874 in the same grave, then Catherina Dorothea Schultz(written as Dara Schultz in the cemetery records) was put on top of them in 1913, it all seems very strange to me.
Anyone knowing anything about the connection between the Treacys and Catherina Dorothea (usually called Doras - probably problems with her strong German accent)? Any information on Mrs Ellen M Treacy? I note a person by that name who lived in Richmond (perhaps near the Schultz family) in the 1860s - is that the same Ellen M Treacy who was married to R M Tracey? (without getting too hung up about the problem of the spelling of the name).
