A Wills mystery solved.

Many years ago I ran into a dead end whilst researching one line of the Wills family from Devon, England. Alexander Wills and his wife Emeline(nee Walker)lived in Melbourne during the 1860s at Collingwood and then worked in the Ballarat and Bendigo mining areas and after 1880 vanished into thin air it appeared.
They apparently moved on to Western Australia probably in search of gold and stayed their. Both died in Perth. Alexander was buried on the 15th August 1900 age 70 years and Emeline buried on the 20th June 1909 age 62 years.
This may help someone with their Wills research.
