Why don't you post on the AU genform asking how to get a copy of the 1866 marriage record --- inexpensively? Maybe someone will help you out? Provide info.

The given name Rosina is a blessing (vs. "Mary", so common). And I always think of Abigail as a western IRE (Co. Kerry) given name. First born daughter often named as the mother of the bride.

You can search the newspaper archives for free:

As for Richard Cook - Welsh, so not catholic? Do you think they raised their children catholic? He married in 1866 in Cooma .... that marriage cert may also give you a Cook/McNally immigrant relative as a witness.

This is probably a child who died young:

Name:       Richard Cook
Death Date:       1870
Death Place:       New South Wales
Registration Year:       1870
Registration Place:       Cooma, New South Wales
Registration number:       3328

Do you have a date/place of death on Richard?

He died post-1888 (youngest child)

Hang on -- there is another researcher with an ancestry tree: Cook's of Warragamba .. the "owner -UnLynch" of the tree's contact info has expired, but this is what they have. Following only 1 child, Joseph. Do you know this person?

She has -- Rosina McNulty ....

Richard Cook
Birth 1836 in Cornwell England
Death 7 Sept 1901 in Wagga Wagga NSW

I do not see Richard in either of these 2 Wagga Wagga cemeteries:

Nor do I see him in the AU death index.
