Hi,
I see a death for Susan with dates to fit your Robert

Surname: MCFARLANE
Given Names: Susan
Event: D
Father: Roberts
Mother: Unknown UNKNOWN
Age: 75
Death Place: Kaniva
Year: 1920

and I see the death in SA for Daniel...BUT considering they all died in different areas they are probably all buried in different cemeteries..
There are a few cemeteries online for both VIC and SA (maybe someone will search them).

Hi There Julie.
You have all the details of Daniel Macfarlane correct,I don't know were his wife Susan is buried she died a good while later in about 1911.
Daniel and Susan are my Great Great Grandparents, I used to go to Morgan for all my school hollidays when I was young. I now live in Melbourne Victoria but get back there every so often, I was over there in early August and did a little cleaning up of the grave.
the grave you saw is only the surround that was moved years ago to make way for the football oval, Daniel is still under the old oval, this was what my Grandfather told me wen I was little, this used to be the original Morgan cemetary. I hope you have a little more history now, please feel free to email me at mcbobby@bigpond.net.au Cheers for now Robert Mcfarlane or BOB.

Hi There.
I think there has been a bit of a mistake made, Robert is the eldest child of Daniel and Susan Macfalane from Murbko South Australia, they migrated from Ayr in Scotland in July 1852 with three Children Robert, Janet and Elizabeth, They arrived at Port Adelaide on a ship called Steadfast in October 1852, after they settled they had 4 more children, James, Agnes,Susan and Mary jane. Susan Macfalne was Nee Mckie or Mckee.Robert Mcfarlane, Great Great Grandson. ps the spelling of the surname,I think somewhere along the way there was a muck up on someones birth certificate, Mac, went to Mc.

Hi Kellie.
Robert Macfarlane who died in Kaniva in 1908 was married to Susanna Roberts, His Mother,SUSAN Macfarlane was married to Daniel Macfarlane, Susan's maiden name was Mckie.
Daniel was married before what we understand is that Daniel lost his first wife, Robert the eldest child that died in 1908, he actually died 3 years before his mother/ stepmother and may have been from the first marriage, if this is true, then all his siblings were half brothers and sisters.
The is a few more children that I have found on my family tree that I got from my cousin in Ireland, I will give you these a bit later.
I do hope this will help you with your inquiries.
Robert ( Bob ) Mcfarlane

HI Cathryn.
The Susan Mcfarlane that I am looking for was still alive in 1952 I met her when I was 6 years old, her married name was Price and the lived down the bottom end of Deakin Avenue, she was very old then and was my Grandfather's Auntie. The time I was there the old swimmimng pools were still in use down on the right side of the rail bridge as you went down to the river, they were still building the new centre down behind Deakin Avenue over the back fence. Sadly that was my only trip to Mildura I now live here in Victoria and have never been back to Midura.
