Catherine is my gg grandmother. Her children in her obit are from her previous marriage.There is an illegitimate child and step children as well that are not mentioned in the obit but I have everything I need there.
I have quite a lot on her and I am writing a book on her life but I don't have much on James Phin who is still a bit of a mystery to me.James and Catherine married Dec 1881 when Catherine had the North Star Hotel at Templers and they ran it for a few years. (used to be William and Martha Templers).
So at the present trying to concentrate on who he was and where he came from. He appears to have been alive when she died and then nothing.I'm pretty sure they did not have any children together.
The death in QLD is likely to be him but I will get the certificate and see if there is more info on it.
According to their marriage cert his father is Thomas Phin so I am looking for his family.
