TOLMIE, LILIAS

Lilias Katherine Tolmie (c.1868-1931)

Lilias Katherine was the youngest child of William Alexander and Sibella Tolmie. I have found very little information, other than that she was born in New Zealand in 1867 and died in Dunedin on 28th February 1931 aged 63, just one week before her sister Jessie passed away on 7th March 1931 aged 73. It would appear that she did not marry; her surname is still Tolmie on the death record.
