Anne McKenzie

Anne McKenzie, (daughter of Alexander (Jun) McKenzie and Elizabeth Hanks) b. 25-04-1858 in Bulli, d. 16-07-1936 in Duck Creek, Old Bonalbo, NSW.

She married James Hamilton, married 28-09-1879 in Grenfell, NSW, b. 7-04-1840 in Ardbarron, Tyrone, Ireland, d. 10-07-1922 in Inglewood, QLD.  James: Descended from Earl of Abercorn.

(Note from Kerrie Anne Christian – Anne McKenzie’s sister Elizabeth McKenzie was also married in Grenfell in 1876 to Robert Smart Adams. This raises the question of whether their parents, Alexander McKenzie and wife Elizabeth Hanks, were living with their family in Grenfell in the 1870’s ? In Trove there are several references to an Alexander McKenzie and an A McKenzie in Grenfell in 1873 and 1877- 1, 2). This could potentially place the McKenzie family in Grenfell in between the period that they lived in Taralga by 1863, and in Cowra/ Canowindra by 1882 ?)
