Looking for information on a person named Captain George Dryden, he lived in the Tasmanion, Launceston area.

Query by BobEvans

Had a daughter Louisa Martha Dryden (became McCarron & then White) who died in Devonport, TAS., in 1942, however there does not seem to be a record of her burial location. Logically it should be in Devonport, however the local historical society have informed me that her name does not appear.
Her husband Henry Vautin White, was buried in Flowerdale, TAS., and maybe she is buried with him, however he died in 1916. And I have no access to a burial register.
Any assistance would be appreciated, thank you Bob

Hi there, I found this record on TAMIOT 2nd Edition 1999.

WHITE Louisa Martha D: 27 Jul 1942 - 87yrs - ULVERSTONE CEMETERY, GENERAL SECTION - ULVERSTONE - DEVONPORT - UL10/0799

and this - you probably already have this? Note the discrepancy in the Date of Death between TAMIOT and the newspaper notice.

WHITE.-On July 29, at Devonport,Louisa Martha, relict of the late Henry Vautin White, loving mother of Mrs. G. Yard, 30 Victoria street, Ulverstone, and daughter of the late Captain and Mrs. George Dryden, Launceston , aged 87 years. Inter-ment private. - Haslock and Gillard, A F.D.A , 37 Steel st., Devonport, 'phone 357.

Hi Crawford,
Thank you for your hard work, I have been trying for hours to work out a way to track her place of rest, and you have hit it on the head. Thank you so much.
I get your point about the 27 Jul and the 29 Jul, one can only think that the TAMIOT refers to the burial date, "go figure. !!??"
As you can see, they were separated at death, which is a shame for those wishing to follow up on people, but there was a number of years difference in their deaths.

.........Thank you once again, regards, Bob
