was looking for his burial site but there doesn't appear to be an on-line database for Nabowla, not even Lilydale ...

This is for member James Johnson. I've got a lot of Tassie Cemeteries on file I'll see if I have it

THANX JANILYE, I have a copy of his marriage Cert and it is the name of JOHNSON. James

I mean't to ask you about the marriage. Was that October 1897?
I wasn't sure because of the children's birthdates.
