Google is the best way to find locations.

What specific names are you searching for in which cemeteries?

Jenny,
Thank you for the added info you have supplied, all the Cooma one's line up with what we had,but from the Monaro pioneers site i have found this in relation to Delegate & Dalgety,

13 F v. Annie Jane Seears was born on February 2, 1871 in Cooma, NSW, died on October 6, 1956 in Delegate, NSW42 at age 85, and was buried on October 11, 1956 in Delegate Cemetery, NSW Grave 144.

5. John Seears (George1) was born in 1842 in Milton Bryant, Bedfordshire, England, died on February 8, 1909 in North Sydney, NSW7 at age 67, and was buried in Belmore Station near Dalgety, NSW Grave 2.


7. Henry Seears (George1) was born in 1847 in Milton Bryant, Bedfordshire, England, died on July 18, 1904 in Mount Pleasant Station Dalgety, NSW9 at age 57, and was buried in Mount Pleasant Station Dalgety Cemetery, NSW Grave 1a.

Maybe John Seears is buried on a private property !!!

Once again thank you very much for your continued help,

Moya.
