and then there is this one ….

Ann Mobbs and William Smith were married by special licence in 1840  —-“Ann Mobbs (nee Grover) remarried in the year of 1840. Although Ann was 81 years of age at the time, she did not let that stop her marrying a man of 28 by the name of William Smith. It is believed William Smith may have worked on the property and it would also seem that age made no difference as far as this couple were concerned, as they were married until Ann’s death some ten years later.Ann Smith, Late Mobbs, Nee Grover died at Pennant Hills on the 20th July 1850 at the age of 91. She was buried on the 24th of July 1850 with William Mobbs.”  source http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Mobbs-38
