Hi Peter There appears to be large families of Telford's in Mt Gambier that I can see and I can see howconfusing it all is.The index records we have give little info but I'mhaving a go at piecing it together.
You don't happen to live near Mt Gambier do you?The Mt Gambier Public Library in Watson Tce is where the district BDM records are kept .Dont know if you know about these but these are copies of the original certificates with all the info on them that is not included on the indexes. I believe the SAGHS also have district records as well, not sure about the state library.To view them is free and make notes but your not allowed to copy them.Your James marriage index record has a symbol S onit which is supposed to mean there is some addition info on it which may be of importance to the researcher.
It looks like James Telford c1855 is from Scotland, Roxburghshire.fathers name is also James.also looks like he had brothers with him. I think youWilliam Telford maybe one of hisbrothers.TheSinton/Linton appears in other Telfords.do you have this info?
