Hi Janette

 Having problems with this . Is there a typo in this 1857 
marriage year ?

 Civil registration of BDMs dates from 1 March 1856 .  Prior to 
that date this areas parish names were usually Monaro/ 
Queanbeyan/ Twofold Bay. Dont recall seeing Eucumbene . Even 
today this is a name of a Lake and a river ........ not a town 
name

 After civil rego  the area name was Cooma

 Cant find any ref to any Peter CLARK/E 1857 marriage

  There is an extensive Monaro Pioneers web site . No ref found 
for Peter CLARK/E

Bye

                 MargM
Beautiful NSW Central Coast
