  • Notes 
    • MARGARET BUTCHER née ANDERSON between 1857 and 1861-1943

      Margaret Anderson was said to have been born in 1861 when she married James BUTCHER (sic) in 1881.
      (Archives of Tasmania)

      They had a son James Francis BUTCHER at Launceston, Tasmania, in 1881

      A gravestone in Sheffield Cemetery, Tasmania, Australia, records the death of James BOUTCHER (sic) 8 December 1919 aged 61. The same gravestone records the death of his wife Margaret BOUTCHER (sic) on 31 January 1943 aged 85 years, i.e. born in 1857 or 1858.

      NOTES & QUERIES:
      There is a discrepancy in Margaret ANDERSON's date of birth. The record of her marriage to James BUTCHER says she was born in 1861. She died in 1943 aged 85, i.e. born in 1857-1858. Perhaps she didn't want James to know that she was older than she was!
