    Not at all :)
    There are very many William H (Henry?) Osborne's around.
    Maryanne at Rootschat in 2013 accepted him as the one she was after (death 1927)on the premise that his parents were listed as William and Jane....but....the death registration has the parents as William and Jane Bolton.
    So obviously not your William.

    Ellen Jane Osbourne married after Samuels death to Joseph Menadue 6th Oct 1900. I cant see a death for her in that name. Joseph Menadue died in 1929. Most of the Menadue's and Osborne's are buried at Gympie.

    Didn't think to put Osbourne:rolleyes:
    I had Ellen's father's name so it is handy to know her mother's as well.
    So her 2nd marriage was to somebody with the same surname as her maiden name.

    I should have said her mother's maiden name.

    Back to Wiliam H Osborne...accepting that the William Henry Osborne the solicitor is not your Henry, there is another William Henry Osborne funeral notice in The Telegraph Brisbane dated 5/12/1910. ‘The Friends of’ are invited to attend his funeral at 2.30 the following day at Toowong Cemetery. As ‘friends’ are invited and not family then it is quite certain that this William was not married. However hard I have looked, I cannot find a death registration for this William on Queensland BDM nor a record at Toowong Cemetery. Could another pair of eagle eyes have a look please....I’m having no luck. :headbang:

    I aren't sure where William disappeared to.
    Because Samuel emigrated to Australia I thought that he may have been following his brother William. Only 3 years between them.
    I have looked at various things but no luck.
    In fact I was hoping that William H went to the USA and married and died because with a bit of luck there could have been a document naming his parents.
