This is possibly Ethel Muriel Spotswood who was born on 6 Mar 1882, the younger daughter of Christopher Spotswood (1850-1887) and his wife Emily Matilda Dell (1852-1885). Ethel was not quite three years old when her mother died from chronic myelitis on 25 Feb 1885 aged 33. Ethel was orphaned just two years later when her father died from enteric fever on 13 May 1887. Her parents were buried at the Queenborough Cemetery in Sandy Bay. It appears that Ethel and her sister Rosalind were cared for by family members in Launceston.
