The child was buried by J Walmsley. Witnesses present at the burial were JJ King, A Waters and Edward George Huxham, his father. His death was certified in writing by his mother, Mary Jane Wilson, of Mt Ida. The child was a brother to Gwendolyn Doris Wilson, who died in 1906, aged 6 months, and to Norman Walter Wilson, both of whose stories appear in this website.

The children's mother, Mary Jane O'Brien, married John William on 26 September 1890 in Melbourne, Victoria.  Their known children were: Percival Thomas Wilson (aka Charles Cosgrove) born Victoria 1893 (Birth Registration 8051/1893, Timor); Annie born 1895 (Birth Registration 1627, Coolgardie); Christopher Edwin born 1897 (Birth Registration 645/1897, Menzies); Possibly James Lesley born 1899; Walter Norman born 1902 (Birth Registration 1734/1902, Menzies); Twins Henry George (Birth Registration 2396/1904, Fremantle) and Reginald Arthur (Birth Registration 2397/1904, Fremantle) born 1904; Gwendoline Doris born 1905 (Birth Registration 1298/1905, Cottesloe); Harrold Huxham born 1910 (Birth Registration 18/1910, North Coolgardie), died 1910 (Death Registration 5/1910, North Coolgardie).

In 1915, Mary Jane Wilson (nee O'Brien) married Edward George Huxham at Kalgoorlie (Marriage Registration 6/1915, East Coolgardie). They had a further three children: Francis H born 1906; George B possibly born 1916 in Fremantle; a daughter, possibly Gladys P, born 1918 in Fremantle.  When Mary Jane Wilson married Edward George Huxham, apparently a son, Albert, was born in the East Coolgardie region in 1915 but died aged 4 months. No record has been found of this child.  The other children listed on the death certificate of Gwendolyn Doris Wilson included four males and two females deceased.

Mary Jane and John Wilson may have moved to Western Australia about 1895.

The story of Harrold's siblings, Norman Walter and Gwendoline Doris, appear in this website.
