after posting my previous message (see below) I realized I should have included my email address email@example.com.Again any help would be very appreciated.
Hello Mary Jane...I just noticed this thread and wonder if you are still able to provide information on Ceylon death information. My 3'x great grandmother died in Ceylon while residing there while her husband was appointed Archdeacon of Colombo. She was Alicia Staples Mathias nee Swift and died between 1859 and 1861. I know these dates because 1859 was when her last child was born and 1861 was the year her husband returned to England broken hearted due to her death.
Thank you so much in advance is you are still able to help.
