Joan, I have gone through the SA bdm indexes again and there is only one death of a Janet LAWRENCE up to 1972 and she died in 1927 aged 57 and is buried in Kadina cemetery with her husband John Henry LAWRENCE

Have you actually viewed the headstone or are you going by the name listed on the online index as that could well be an error

Going by the official death records in south australia it was Lucinda Maria who died in 1867 - whether the age is correct or not and her husband was James

If there is a Janet buried with his 2nd wife Martha then she is someone else entirely but there is no record of this death

This is the only explanation that I can think of as it is all very confusing

The Lucinda who is buried in Ballarat cemetery was living in Wendourie when she died according to the Ballarat cemetery records on CD
