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).

Thanking you....

Looking for Theresa Maria Gray

Theresa Maria Gray married John Hughes in 1864 at Duck River (Smithton), Tasmania. She had two children, William and Lydia Theresa, and then she disappears from the scene. No record of her birth or death in Tasmania. She is possibly the child of Thomas Gray and Mary McGuire of Horton, Tasmania. May have been born at sea. The marriage cert states that she was 24 at the time of marriage, but this may not be accurate. She was marrying a 45 yr old ex convict (good guy though he was, leader of a Welsh rebellion and an exciting story to tell).
