Trove Tuesday - Death of Jane McColm

My great great grandmother Jane McColm had only lived in Australia for 9 years before she died a few weeks after the birth of her seventh child Ethel.

Her husband Malcolm McColm placed this notice in The Warwick Argus.

Here is a link to a previous post about Jane McColm.


  1. How terribly sad for all of them, and so young.

  2. Pauleen yes it would have been a difficult time. I have an idea that her daughter, my great grandmother was looked after by another family. I remember reading something a long time ago but can't find where I read it. I should also have added a link to my other post about Jane McColm. http://genealogymatters2me.blogspot.com.au/2011/09/my-great-great-grandmother-jane-mccolm.html
