"According to a copy of a birth certificate I have: on 15.2.1892 a daughter was born to Margaret Martin (Schrader) at Moruya. The daughter was named Amelia Margaret and born to Herbert Cyrus Huxley, Sleeper Cutter of Gulgong NSW. Margaret who was the informant gave her name as "M Huxley" on the certificate. This certificate doesn't seem to indicate that the two were married at the time of this birth."

Schrader - Augustus and Margaret - Divorce

Note: Downloaded from Trove.
Note: There seems to be some inconsistencies in this article. Firstly it states that Augustus and Margaret were married in 1858 in Spring Valley, near Wagga Wagga. This would mean that Margaret would have been only 9 years of age. I therefore suspect that this is a typo and should be 1868, which is when their marriage was registered in Armidale. This raises the issue of where they were married. I have found a Spring Valley just a little south west of Goulburn, but nothing near Wagga Wagga. In view of other circumstantial information, I suspect they were married in Spring Valley, near Goulburn.
