Marriage of Elizabeth Walker to William Cornelius
30 November 1870
"Cornelius - Walker - On the 22nd November, at the Primitive Methodist Chapel, Mount Barker, by Rev John Goodwin. WT Cornelius, eldest son of Captain Thomas Cornelius, late of the Blinman Mine, to Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Wm Walker esq., of Mount Barker."
The entry from the "Marriages" page of the family bible of William and Isabella Walker reads:
" Elizabeth Walker & William Cornelius was married at Mount Barker at Wistow Nov 1870".
It appears William Walker may have recorded this entry after the event and recorded it as at Mt Barker and Wistow - maybe the reception was held at Wistow? CW May 2007.
