Edward Manning Bill b. 1831 Nova Scotia

I am searching for information on Edward Manning Bill born 27 March 1831 at Nicteaux, Nova Scotia, Canada and died 18 December 1904 at 900 Huntington Avenue, Boston, Massachusetts. He was previously listed in the Beverly, MA city directory as:
Bill, Annie M., widow of Caleb R., b. 4 Loring Avenue
Edward, removed to Brookline
Jennie B. , 4 Loring Avenue
(Caleb Rand Bill was his brother and my great grandfather)

Death Certificate Reg #10402

Edward M. Bill, date of death Dec. 18, 1904
Age 73
Place of death: 900 Huntington Avenue, Boston, Massachusetts
White male, widower
Birthplace: Nictaux, Nova Scotia
Father's name: Ingraham E. Bill born in Nictaux, Nova Scotia
Mother's name: Isabella Lyons, born Billtown, Nova Scotia
Occupation: retired
Place of burial/removal: Forest Hills Crematory, Boston, MA
Undertaker : W. H. McManus
Cause of death: Hemiplegia
Contributory factors: Hematuria, nephritis, exposure (life in Australia)
Medical examiner: W. I. Blanchard, Dec. 18, 1904

I had previously known that Edward Manning Bill had spent many years in Australia as a Baptist missionary (his father was the Baptist Reverend I. E. Bill, his brother Ingraham Bill, jr. was a missionary in New Zealand), but I do not know his wife, marriage information, etc. Would like to know the details of his life in Australia, it sounds like he was under great deprivation.
