I've been hunting for info on Joseph Moyle Williams my 3 x great granddad.

+2 votes
Joseph was born about 1845 although I don't know if it was in Australia. He married Mary Jane Muir in 1884, she was born in Timor, Victoria in about J1820

I found Australia electoral rolls with J.M.Williams where he resided in 1909 and 1912 in Laanecoorie, Victoria, Australia. Then from 1913 to 1917 he resided in the Grampians, Victoria, Australia.

Joseph and Mary Jane had a son named Joseph Graham Williams 1864 - 1930, born Maryborough, Victoria.

He died in about 1920 in Moonee Ponds, Victoria, Australia.

I don't have access to ancestry or other paid groups and I'm having a very difficult time locating information. On Mary Jane Muir's side I have gone further back than 1500, although I'm not qualified to enter this information. I'd love to match up the Williams side as well.

If someone can help I'll be very grateful.

I found this marriage record on Ancestry.com.  Could this be a previous marriage of Joseph Moyle Williams?  And this Mary is actually the mother of Joseph Graham Williams.  It is possible, when the record was transcribed that the surname Muir/Mine was misread.  This marriage is the same year as his birth.  

Will keep digging. 

Name: Joseph Williams
Spouse Name: Mary Graham Mine
Marriage Place: Victoria
Registration Place: Victoria
Registration Year: 1864
Registration Number: 815   

If there was only one marriage.  Then perhaps the 1884 marriage record was for a different Joseph and Mary Jane Williams.  I noticed there was no maiden name for her on the record, unless Williams was her maiden name also.
