Research The entry for James in Convict Records suggests that he died 26.1.1885 near Chidlow's Well. The registration of this death has the deceased at 40 years of age whereas #4547 would have been around 60 (reg: 13045/1885). It is a big variation.

A more likely death for #4547 could be 18.11.1890 Perth buried at East Perth Cemetery. Though this death could also fit #7651.
