A copy of the marriage certificate (1889)for John FRANCIS and Agnes JONES has been posted on a commercial site online.Here are the details of the bride and groom on that certificate:
Father: George Frederick FRANCIS
Father's Occupation: Carpenter
Mother: Rachel CURRINS
Born: (I can't read this - a long word starting with H?)
Occupation: Domestic Servant
Father: Robert JONES
Father's Occupation: Selector
Mother: Harriet ARNOLD
Both parties were residing at Omeo, John's usual place of residence was Wombat.
Witnesses were Charles FRANCIS and Caroline JONES.
As you can see, Robert FRANCIS and Mary Ann McCORMICK are NOT the parents of the John FRANCIS who married Agnes JONES.
It is really important that you document your research as you go - certificates can be purchased and downloaded online from the Victorian BDM registry.
