From on Monday, 27 December, 2010

Hi Elizabeth,
Today I came across your site with information about Laurence Scannell and his wife Mary Collier. Mary Collier is the niece of my great, great, great grandmother, Elizabeth Jackson. Elizabeth is the sister of Margaret Jackson who married Laurence Collier.

Unfortunately I think you have confused the marriages of the Scannell children.
Annie Maria Scannell born 1863 did not marry. She died unmarried on 18.4.1938. Vic Death #3060.
Her death is recorded in the Argus newspaper on 19.4.1938. SCANNELL - On the 18th April at Alfred Hospital, Annie Maria, eldest daughter of the late Lawrence and Mary Scannell, late of Merriang, dearly loved sister of Daniel (deceased), Thomas, Maggie (Mrs. Barrow), Nora (Mrs. Box), Elizabeth (Mrs. Franklin), Mary, Gertie (Mrs. Anderson) and Lawrence, aged 73 years.

Margaret Ellen Scannell born 1866, married John William Barrow in 1903 in Victoria #2694. She is referred to as Maggie in the death notice for Annie Maria.
The Margaret Scannell who married William John Merritt is the daughter of Cornelius Scannell and his wife Rose Hussey and she was born in 1869 in Bulla #14003. She died 1949 Margt Merritt d/o Cornelius Scannell & Mary Rose Hussey, Froy, aged 79, #3832

Hanorah Scannell born 1871 married Walter John Box in 1903 in Victoria #712. Her marriage is recorded in the Argus dated 11.4.1903. BOX - SCANNELL On the 7th January at St. Peter and Pauls RC Church, by the Rev Father Collins, Walter John, second son of Alfred John and Annie Box, late of Brighton, to Nora Amelia, third daughter of the late Lawrence and Mary Scannell of Merriang Victoria.
The Hanorah Scannell who married Alfred Merritt in 1893 is the daughter of Cornelius Scannell and Rose Hussey and she was born in 1873 in Bulla #7805. She died 1955 Honora Merritt d/o Corne Scannell & Mary Hussey, Rich, 82, #7069.
I hope this helps with your research. Regards, Cathy, Reading, Melbourne, Victoria
