A Minnie DAVIS is living North Croydon and working as a washerwoman on the 1903 Electrol Roll.
Another Minnie DAVIS died Thursday, 10 June 1948 in Brisbane no father, and her mother is recorded as Maria YOUNG. This Minnie was born Monday, 17 August 1874 as Minnie YOUNG and married Daniel (aka George) DAVIS Tuesday, 2 August 1892
The death entry for this Minnie DAVIS (nee STEDMAN) did not list any parents names and the BCC burial list says she was 80 years old and the Qld BDM Index says she was born England.
Buried in the same grave were Harry BROWN, aged 60 years, and James BURNS, also aged 60 years and both were buried on Monday, 5 October 1932. According to the Qld BDM Index, James BURNS was born in Dubbo, NSW. An index entry has not been found for Harry BROWN. There is no known connection between any of these three people.
Henry was a widower and 34 years old when he married Charlotte, who was only 22 years of age, in the Court House in Townsville. The witnesses to the marriage were A. Ross and Eliza Callaghan. His death certificate has his name recorded as Thomas Henry SMITH. His death certificate also states that he married the first time in Mackay but does not say at what age nor to whom he was married. An index for this marriage has not been found.
Because this gentleman is recorded under several different names, we will refer to him here as Henry.
Research has so far has not revealed a birth, and so, we don't know what name he was given when he was born. The first event we find for him, is his marriage to Charlotte FRENCH, where he is simply named Henry SMITH. He is said to be a widower and his death certificate says that his first marriage was in Mackay, but this marriage has not been found.
The next certificate we have is for the birth of his son, Henry, in 1873, where he is again named Henry SMITH. When his third son, Sydney Howard SMITH, is born in 1877, he is named on the certificate as Henry Theodore SMITH and again when Elizabeth is born in 1882 he is also named Henry Theodore SMITH on the certificate. When Henry and Charlotte had their last child, George, in 1883, Henry is once again named Henry Theodore SMITH on the certificate.
When Henry died on the 30th of May 1896, he was named Thomas Henry SMITH on the certificate and again on the death certificate for his son, Sydney Howard SMITH, on the 27th of June 1896, he was also named Thomas Henry SMITH. When Henry died, his son-in-law, Abraham DITTON, was listed as the informant, and again when his son, Sydney Howard SMITH died, it was Sydney's brother-in-law, Abraham DITTON (who married his sister, Sarah Ellen SMITH) who was listed as the informant. A note from Judith HEALY (nee GRIFFITHS), Henry's great-grand-daughter, says that Abraham is an 'unreliable witness'.

3 COD - burning, Trismus, Peritonitis interred -- West End Cemetery [30-8-88]
I am the only known child
Yesterday afternoon as Mrs. Smith, who resides at the West End near the Show Ground was attending to some cooking, her dress caught fire, and the material being very inflammable she was instantly enveloped in flames. It was some little time before the flames were extinguished, and Mrs. Smith suffered intensely. Dr. Van Someren was immediately sent for and on arrival found that the injuries were very serious, the lower portion of the body being badly burned whilst the legs were literally roasted. Remedies were immediately applied and everything done to relieve the sufferer who was in great agony.

When his daughter Mary Ann died in 1904, Charles was listed as being a schoolmaster but previously had only been listed as a labourer.
We need some help with Charles so that future generations know who he is and that his existence here, although short in time, will not be forgotten. Your contribution of information would be much appreciated.
If you should know any more information about Eliza, it would be most helpful to myself and other researchers, if you were to write with as many details that you can provide. I am sure that Eliza would be pleased to see you taking an interest in her family history.
It is important to record as much information about John as soon as we can so that it doesn't become lost forever.
So if you can help with some information I am sure that John's family would be most pleased.
Charlotte Frances and her second husband, Robert RYAN, were living with her son Adolphus Friday McDOUGALL, his wife Janet (nee NEAL) and four of their children at 12 Cardigan Road, Bow, London when the 1881 census was taken.
This street is in the civil parish of Bow, parliamentary borough of Tower Hamlets and the Ecclesiastical Parish of St Stephens.
George was listed as a chemist at his son George Frederick's marriage and also when George himself was married at Saint Pancras, Old Church, London where he was also listed as being a widower.
If you should know any more information about George, it would be most helpful to myself and other researchers, if you were to write with as many details that you can provide. I am sure that George would be pleased to see you taking an interest in his family history.
On the marriage certificate Mary was listed as a minor in the age column and so her date of birth is only an estimation.
Mary did not come to Australia but her sister Jane did come on the Chatsworth
with Andrew and his children and appears on the shipping list as his wife. There were two deaths of a Mary CHAPPEL in England in 1861. The death of Mary in Redruth had her as 80 years old and so was not the correct one.
