BMDB data

     Isaac Daw was born in 1867 Ballarat, VIC, AUS, Ref #6207 reg. Ballarat to Issac (sic) (DAW) and Cath (JOHNSON.)4,3
     Isaac Daw married Elizabeth Ann Ellis Trembath on 8 Feb 1900 Cue, WA, AUS, Isaac 34, Elizabeth Ann BROTHERAS nee TREMBATH, 45.2,5,1
     Isaac Daw died on 9 Sep 1930 Alfred Hosp., Prahran, Melbourne, VIC, AUS; Dth notice reads: DAW.—On the 9th September, at the Alfred Hospital, Isaac Daw, the dearly beloved husband of Elizabeth Daw, of 103 Grey street, St. Kilda, loving stepfather of May (Mrs. Dyer), John, and Stephen, loving grandfather of Ivy, aged 63 years. Asleep in Jesus.3,6,7
     Evidence that the Isaac DAW, married in Western Australia to Elizabeth Ann Ellis BROTHERAS (nee TREMBATH) was this Isaac was initially by his age, and because he was known to be at Mallee in 1912 when his father died. Mallee appears to be near Ouyen and not far from Gama, where Isaac and Elizabeth Ann can be found in assorted electoral rolls (1909 Tutye, Ouyen, 1914 Gama, 1919 Tutye).
The evidence however accumulated. A passenger report in 1895 showed a "DAW & family", and separately, same ship, an Isaac DAW, all arriving at Fremantle. This could of course be complete coincidence, but back in Mornington, in 1902 there is also a newspaper report of an Isaac Daw from West Australia buying land, and the electoral rolls from the appropriate time show Isaac with Elizabeth.
His 1930 death index shows his parents and a now found death notice shows that he was indeed married to an Elizabeth.
Thank you MyHeritage SmartMatches for adding this surprise to the family tree (marriage and a soujorn in Western Australia - neither of which were known to me).8,9,10,6

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area.
