Queensland Death Certificate 1911/000105 001131
Jesse Henry SMITH, Labourer, 48 years, died 15 June 1911 at St George Hospital, born Ballarat, Victoria, Father: George SMITH, Carter, Mother: Helena (poss transcription error for Melinda).

(St George is 45km north of Nindigully. Birthplace and father's name and occupation is correct. Mother's name should be Melinda. I have a typed transcript of the death certificate so I cannot determine whether a misinterpretation of the original handwriting could explain why Helena is given.)
