I also found THIS on my tree:
George Milton, the fifth child and eldest son of Peter and Charlotte Eather, was born in 1864. His birth was registered at Tamworth, which was, at the time the nearest centre where births could be registered. He was undoubtedly born at 'Henriendi'. His first forename was probably after his mother's youngest brother, George Eather Williams, but the origin of his second forename is a mystery, as the name Milton does not appear anywhere else in the Eather family. His marriage certificate records his second forename as Melton. A minimum of information was recorded on the marriage certificate. Not stated were the ages or the places of birth of either George or Maria, nor the names of their respective parents. Recorded is the fact that George Stanford, father of the bride, gave consent to the marriage as she was under twenty one. The witnesses to the marriage were George Stanford and Samuel Taylor. The wedding ceremony was held at the home of the brides father at Eulah Creek. The marriage registered at Narrabri.
George and Maria seem to have resided alternately at Narrabri and at Boggabri until 1899 and then they lived permanently in the Boggabri district. George and Maria and most of their children were still residing on their selection in 1915. Ten years later in 1925, George had given up farming and he and Maria were living at Balonne Street, Narrabri. (janilye2010)
