Thanks, Robert. Mary Moesby also remarried in 1869 in Kentucky, nine years after her listed death in one tree. Ancestry should keep it's hints to itself I think.

I'm not sure, Dusty.
The family trees that include Mary Moesby's death seem to be unreliable. I think it's still possible the ad relates to this Emma-maybe her mother was estranged from the family in Nottingham and living in Pontefract with other relatives (there are a few Moesby's in Pontefract too) and was unsure of her daughters married name when she took out the ad?
The name is sometimes difficult to search- I suspect there are as many mistranscribed Moesby's in hiding as there are correctly deciphered entries.

Hi Debs

When I was looking at this, I took the mother to be Mary Ann Barnes.

I think Richard and the kids are listed as Mowbray in one census - in the original. But Richard changes his birthplace from Yorks to Notts.

One thought that occurs is, would not someone who remembered to ask for the Australian papers to be copied, have inserted her daughter's middle name?

Yes Chris, if this is the 1888 Emma Elizabeth Smith. Of course, the 1888 victim may have somehow acquired a miiddle name when she didn't originally have one.

Hi Robert. Yes, if the missing woman was Emma Elizabeth Smith you'd have thought the middle name would be used-although having the maiden name Moesby might have been rare enough for someone to think the middle name wasn't needed-if there was one.

Debs, did you find her in 1891? There's a housekeeper in Doncaster who is a possible, but that's a bit of a distance from Streethouse. But looking at Snydale, which I believe embraces Streethouse, there just don't seem to be any possible Marys. So I'm assuming she must have moved from Streethouse to somewhere, unless she died under some name or other.

That's the one I thought may be her too, Robert.

British BMD has the birth of an Emma Moseby in Nottingham in 1859.
