have a transcript of a 1885 NSW birth cert , mothers name
Elizabeth ( also known as
Bessie / Betsey ) MASON ( maiden name) ,aged 30 ( so born c1855), birth place Castlereagh River .
This families descendants arestill Roman Catholic.
Her death cert states parents not known . She had children to 2 different fathers , no marriage certs found.
She d in 1904 as Elizabeth HARRIS at Sydney hospital of orbitalcellulitus /septicaemia. Not a nice way to go at all in fact the photo Google found was stomach turning .
1904 was a good 40 yearsbefore penicillin was in any major use.
There is a family story of maybe some Aboriginal ancestry ?
Any super super sleuths out there who could find any clue/s as to who was Elizabeth MASON ?????????????
