Thank you everyone. I have the obit and other newspaper articles which gave a lot of information about his life. I also have his death certificate, I was hoping his date of birth might be entered on the certificate. No such luck. I know he was born in Mudgee New South Wales and he would have been born around about 1870/1871 but I have searched electronic and microfiche records and there are no records on him. I only have him appearing in Queensland when he married to Nellie in 1893.
My next step is to write to the Catholic Church in Mudgee to see if maybe there is a registration.
If anyone has any other suggestion please let me know.
