Although the age is wrong, I have seen a newspaper cutting dated April
1903 with the following death notice for a James Anderson:

Mrs Frank Heard certainly had many descendants, although I have no
details about the other children. What were the names of the 10, and
their birth dates?
I am not a relative (though Margaret's daughter was my aunt by
marriage) but I collect Barrabool Hills families
Good luck with your search.
