The Austin-McQuire web site has their marriage year as 1846 yet the NSW Marriage Index shows 1848. It might just be a typograpical error on the web site.

The Austin-McQuire web site did not have a date of death listed, but did note that Mary died at Palmers Channel. This is an area between Maclean and Yamba and I have therefore judged that the Sourced Death Index entry may be relevant.
