Name: Robert DUNBAR.
Died: 1915 in South Fitzroy, Victoria.
Age: 82 years.
Father: Robert DUNBAR.
Mother: Isabella MOWAT.
Ref: Registry of Deaths, Victoria. Reg #9127.

Was not sure if you had Robert's death.
Going by his age at death he was born circa 1833, but ages recorded at death are often wrong.

I feel terrible as I haven't been on this site for yonks and found your messages
tonight. Thanks so much !
I don't have Robert's Death Certificate but I do have Mary Ann's, his wife.

I found on Trove, a Robert Joseph Dunbar, who was murdered by his foster son in
Fitzroy in 1937. It could be Robert & Mary Ann's son as the death dates seem correct.

I also wrote a message re: Madills to Indra as this is my ex husbands family.

Thanks again .... really appreciate it.
