I am searching for details about a Mary Nichus. Possibly changed from Niehus ?
All I know is that Mary put a "IN MEMORIAN" notice in the WED 19th Dec 1923 edition of the Barrier Miner(Broken Hill, NSW) newspaper.
The notice was for a Alberto Panizza who was the great-grandfather of my husband and that he had died the previous year of food poisoning (?).
As Mary was not related to Albert it was a very kind and touching notice.
The rest of the Panizza family migrated after WW2 and do not know of Mary Nichus.
Is our Mary the same as your Mary born 6/12/1905 ?
Thanking you for your consideration in this matter,
