  • Name Christina McPhee (Tina) b 1849 MCLEAN  [1
    Nickname Tina 
    Born 11 Jul 1849  Strathalbyn SA Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 2
    • BIRTH 'Meadow Bank' Strathalbyn SA
    Gender Female 
    Biography Notes In 1868, 'Tina' married Edward Stark. He died 7 years later, in 1875.
    In 1880, 5 years after Edward died, Tina married a second time, to Peter Kelly. He died 3 years later, in 1883.
    In 1887, 3 years after Peter died, Tina married a third time, to Thomas Robert Haldane (as per The Dawson book in Goolwa Library).
    It is not clear who Thomas Robert Haldane was. It is stated that he was born about 1840, so could he have been a brother of Thomas Haldane (born 1829) and Robert Haldane (born 1838). It would have been strange, but not impossible, that he had the same name as both of his brothers. Maybe he was a cousin. So we have Eliza Willott Dawson marrying Thomas Robert Haldane in 1852 and then two of her nieces marrying other Haldanes- Eliza Ann McLean to Robert in 1873 and Tina McLean to Thomas Robert in 1887.

    Biography Notes In 1878, Tina had a sale and left Strathalbyn at the same time as her father. (BRB p60)
     
    Biography Notes Tina moved to Albyn Terrace in Strathalbyn - maybe because of some friction between Edward and his brother and John McLean.
