Just to make matters worse - Joseph Ninnes remarried in 1863 yet there is no record in the Death Index for SA of the death of Mary! (Information is included in a couple of those Family Trees on Ancestry)
Joseph married three times.
First wife Mary is buried in St Mark's Penwortham cemetery with her son William George. Died 13 Jun 1863, I found a SA Death reg, Minnes, Mary 1863 6 13 Penwortham book 16 page 345 and I have seen the headstone. Joseph is buried with his second wife Hannah Clark nee Hill. He then married Annie Lane who probably murdered him fro 15000 pounds. The verdict was murky as chief witnesses were proved to have purjured themselves so it was inconclusive as to wether Annie deliberately tipped the lamp over which burnt him to death.
ElizaBarnes, Sue and CT, I've been keeping a separate file of the "other" Ninnes's and decided to look at the comments made recently about this family. I'm not sure where I got this information and it may not be corre t but this is what I have about the unfortunate Joseph Ninnes and Charlotte Schollar;

Ray: Your info. on John Ninnes,wife Charlotte, collates with what I have. I have no death date for John. They had 8 children.My info. may have come from a Pen Genealogy poster! John N.is my 3rd gt-gfather. David.
Re Charlotte, daughter of John Ninnes & Charlotte Schollar. Can anyone confirm that at her marriage to Thomas Ninnes in Australia she was a spinster or was she widow? I have a Charlotte married to James Wallis (widower) in Gulval 1834 who I had previously assumed was this Charlotte.
