Elizabeth C. Spence 1867-1952

Relationship to me:- Grandmother (Paternal)

This copy of Jeremiah and Elizabeths’ marriage certificate is the only source on information I have regarding Elizabeths parents and birthright.

Elizabeth and Jeremiah were married by Fr. P.J. Fallon at St Peter and Paul Catholic Church, South Melbourne.  Elizabeth was the daughter of a local Mansfield farmer Hugh Spence and his wife Mary Guinevan.

Apparently Elizabeth and Jeremiah moved to Cobar in New South Wales shortly after the wedding as Richard was born at Orange the following year.
