Thank you so much for looking into this for us.
We did get a copy of Susanna 's Will and it did have some interesting info. We are still trying to find out what happened to husband George. He is not buried with Susanna. We are calling him George as when the children birth was registered that is the name used. Susanna also used the maiden name BLUNDEN as maiden name more than once.
It seems he may have gone interstate possibly NSW or WA. There is a death of a George Wills under difficult circumstances at Ballarat in 1891. We have ordered John Robert Wills (son) birth certificate to see if it is a possibility that this is the George we are seeking. It is said in the newspaper report he left a wife and six children however John was not born then. He was a traveller who "fell" out of window. He had a broken jaw and such a bad break in his leg they had to amputate. He died not long after. There was supposed to be an inquest according to the newspaper article but we can not find evidence of this nor a death certificate. Perhaps the name was spent incorrectly.
We found Georginas birth index under Willis Susab=n Willis mother father unkn. Will keep you posted. Mary
