I have found three of Ellen Hayes / Smith’s sons are buried in the Sale Cemetery.
|1||James Bernard Hayes||
Buried under the name of James Smith. To date no allotment has been found.
James died aged 10 years and his death certificate states buried Sale Cemetery.
|2||Thomas Smith||Allot 38, Sect F, Plan 1, (no marker or headstone)|
|3||Harry Smith||Allot 11, Sect M, Plan 7.|
There is another grave of Smiths that carries a notation, “4 interments”; ie, in the one grave starting in 1872.
Allot 46, Plan 3, Sect A.
|George Smith||Died, 1st January 1872 |
(I do not believe this to be Ellen’s son George)
|Mary (or May) Smith||Died, 1876 aged 7 weeks.|
|Smith (stillborn)||Died, 25th July 1902.|
|Smith (stillborn)||Died, 20th July 1905.|
None of the four above would be Ellen Smith’s because Ellen gave birth to twin girls, Mary & Malinda in at Wonnangatta Station on the 27th February 1872 and Ellen died 6 days later on the 6th March 1872.
The twin girls died a few days later, Mary on the 11th March and Malinda on the 12th March.
